Sweden Nei Gong Retreat


  • Two week retreat in Sweden taught by Damo Mitchell & Seniors

  • July 12th – July 24th 2017


Damo Mitchell, Roni Edlund and senior instructors from the Lotus Nei Gong team will be running a two week long retreat just outside of the city of Linköping in Southern Sweden. This will be the third year that we have run a two week long Nei Gong course in this location.

Over two weeks students will study the arts of alchemical meditation and Daoist Nei Gong methods. The aim is to take students as deep as we can into the internal processes of Daoism. To do this students will work through the energetic processes outlined within Damo’s books; in particular ‘Daoist Nei Gong’ and ‘White Moon on the Mountain Peak‘.

The main practice we will study in great depth during the ‘active’ phase of the training will be Daoist energetic Qi Gong and Nei Gong  exercises whilst the ‘still’ phase of the training will be the firing process of Nei Dan as well as the Zuowang principle. Theory will look in detail at the internal mechanics of both practices as well as their connection to classical teachings. Each year we select one area of Daoist internal work and go into it in great depth. We will give out details closer to the time as to which exact area of Nei Gong we will be exploring in 2017.

Proposed Syllabus

  • Qi Gong exercises in great detail
  • Sitting meditative practice
  • Environmental exercises and rebalancing practices
  • Theoretical lectures on Daoism and internal cultivation
  • Dao Yin training to help with the process of purging
  • Direct transmissions to help with Xin Fa

Course Practicalities


The course will run from Wednesday the 12th of July 2016 and conclude on Monday the 24th of July.
The timetable is as follows:

  • Tuesday 11th of July – Arrival of students
  • Wednesday 12th – Monday 17th July – Training
  • Tuesday 18th of July – Day off (rest)
  • Wednesday 19th – Monday 24th July – Training

We will conclude the practice at lunch time on Monday the 24th of July so students should prepare to leave the course either Monday afternoon or Tuesday.

The cost of the course is: 650 euro

The price of the course includes all meals and training over the two weeks. This year we are encouraging students to bring their own tents and make this into a camping event. There are a few spaces in indoor accommodation but these will be given on a first come first served basis. If you have difficulty with brining camping gear then just let us know as we may be able to help.

The course is being held at:

Björkö friskola

590 75 Ljungsbro

The Nei Gong process taught by Damo Mitchell and Lotus Nei Gong is a classical process and is, at times, very strong. For this reason we do not recommend that anybody with psychological disorders or those with serious medical issues/needs attend these events. There are many ‘medical’ Qi Gong schools out there that would be more appropriate for these kinds of needs. Nei Gong is also not suitable for pregnant women or anybody under the age of 18 years old. Lastly we reserve the right to ask any student to leave the training immediately if we deem the training to be unsuitable for them or a risk to their well-being.
