Tao and Qigong –

Connect to your inner wisdom

A four day workshop where you discover your inner healing power in an inspiring environment. In the middle of nature, near Utrecht.

Experience a full connection with life, your own energy and inner resources. Get new insights into your life by tapping into your inner wisdom and connecting with your heart. You will learn how to deal with stress, to come home to your life and to find your „inner GPS“.

In this way you can experience a deeper freedom and find solutions for daily topics. And you might change your attitude towards yourself, your challenges, other people and the world.

The workshop combines Qigong and Taoism, the wisdom tradition of the East, and scientific western approaches, the best of both worlds. You will become more balanced, healthy and stable. Carsten will lead you with lightness through an inner journey, where different elements become one organic piece. This enables you to get a new perspective of your life and to connect to your inner core – your true nature.

This workshop is for everyone! You don`t need any experience in Qigong or Meditation.

What we will cover in class:

You will create a strong foundation with Qigong, Tao and meditation. This will help you to deeply relax and to heal on a physical and emotional level. You will also improve the connection to yourself. And you will work with these special methods:

  • Inner martial arts: easy movements for inner freshness, vitality and a younger body
  • Sun-Qigong: fill your cells with light, energy and oxygen
  • Field work and tao communication: finding answers and gaining a new perspective on your life topics


The workshop will give you a profound experience, practical tools and exercises for daily life.

Every afternoon Carsten will give a sound & mantra healing, which enables you to fully relax and to get in contact with your inner self. This will help you to feel supported in life, let go of old fears and develop inner faith.
