August 1, 2008 (Aspen, CO) – Sacred Tree, an integrative health and wellness center in Aspen and Breckenridge, announced today that it will continue its line of signature health and wellness retreats beginning with two workshops in fall:
“FALL EQUINOX” EARTH CYCLES: A PATHWAY TO HEALING” SEPTEMBER 19-21 “AWAKENING THE SOUL: HEALING QIGONG WITH MASTER LI” SEPTEMBER 26-28
Participants in Earth Cycles will celebrate the four seasons, marked by the equinoxes of fall and spring and the solstices of winter and summer. The experience will also include Qigong and Yoga, interactive presentations, indigenous ceremonies, outdoor nature activities, spa services, organic breakfast and lunch.
Participants in Awakening the Soul will explore the Sheng Zhen Qigong style with Master Li Jun Feng, founder of the International Sheng Zhen Qigong Society and world-renowned wushu (martial arts) coach. Master Li will be giving a FREE talk and interactive presentation on Friday evening to launch festivities and celebration for the weekend.
Brigette Schabdach, owner and founder of Sacred Tree, who recently trained with Master Li, says that it is an extreme honor to welcome such a well-known leader to the Valley. “Master Li is truly brilliant. The work he is teaching, the proven effects, message and physical and emotional health benefits of Sheng Zhen Qigong are creating a movement of effective healing, and the power we have as individuals to create change within us and affect those around us,” she adds. “We are collective beings who cannot only heal ourselves, our families, our communities, but also the earth, which Master Li believes will permeate to the world,” she says.
Schabdach, along with Joel Proctor Dipl. L.Ac & CH, co-founder of Sacred Tree and founder of Mystic Warrior School for Integrative Arts, is a licensed acupuncturist, Chinese medicine and herbology practitioner. Joel also is a practitioner of Traditional Indigenous Healing and is a Pipe Carrier. Together, they will present and lead these health and wellness spa retreats, along with additional Sacred Tree practitioners and Master Li.
