Qi&Tea Spiritual Retreats Taoist Qi & Tea Wuyi Mountain Retreat May 8-12 2013

Join us for a journey of a lifetime as we roll through the

mysterious and mystical Wuyi Mountains to discover the ancient ways of the Taoists.

We will discover and unearth a rare largely unknown Taoist tea culture that has existed for millennia. We journey through most beautiful mountain peaks, wild and ancient tea plantations, to real life monks living deep in the mountains to see, feel and learn these beautiful ancient ways.

Join us for an epic journey of the spirit, ancient Taoist and Zen tea culture and cultivation, Qi and self discovery.

Wuyi’s 36 graceful peaks, most under 600 meters high, are skirted by a zigzagging river called Nine Bend Creek.

Since ancient times, Wuyi Mountain has attracted an endless flow of scholars, Taoist masters, Buddhist monks and travelers.
This naturally endowed landscape of water and hills has given the area the reputation of being the most scenic wonder in Southeast China. In 1999, Wuyi Shan was declared a UNESCO World Nature and Cultural Heritage Site.
Wuyi Shan has beautiful scenery and a galaxy of culture. There are many historical sites, abundant natural resources, and fresh air. Walking in this peaceful and beautiful fairyland is an amazing and memorable experience.
This is the perfect time to come to Wuyi Mountain as the temperature and air is great. It is also tea harvest season!
