Join Marty and friends at the beautiful Lotus Mountain Retreat Center, at the base of Bolton Valley Ski Area in Richmond VT for a 4.5 day Longevity Tree qigong workshop.

Allow yourself to immerse your body and mind into the spirit of a tree, tall, upright and connected securely to the earth. Or a fisherman as he cast his net from a small canoe, balanced perfectly in this 360 degree movement.

The Longevity Tree Qigong Form is vibrant with visualizations that help the mind stay in the present, in the form.
