Wen Wu School (WWS) offers a weekend summer retreat on an every other year basis. This year's Thursday to Sunday retreat was held on September 5 to 8 at The Quaker Center
, in Ben Lomond, California.
The WWS summer retreats provide an opportunity to spend time with Master Hui Liu and Shfu Chiang, to eat wonderfully wholesome, freshly prepared meals, to deepen and intensify personal practice, enjoy nature, and to meditate. A wide range of classes and break-out sessions also offer participants an opportunity to try something new, like taiji, shaolin, ba duan jin, core strengthening, meditation, Chinese painting, and Chinese calligraphy, etc.

Shen-Chin Lin lost her vison at age 29. She came here from Taiwan to the United States hoping to restore her vision. That dream did not come true, but she was able to restore her confidence with the training at the Orientation Center for the Blind (OCB), in Albany. She went back to school and now helps others as a certified rehabilitation teacher for the blind, teaching at OCB.
Qigong was recommended for Mary, who didn't think she could fit it into her busy professional life. Mary makes time to practice qigong in the evening to help her sleep restfully and to deal with stressful situations.
