This year's retreat is a festival of Five Animal energy work.


The Five Animals are all about strength and cultivating inner power physically and mentally. The Five Animals help you strengthen muscle and bone while calming the mind which helps relieve stress and anxiety. We have the added treat this year of two new animal forms - the Black Turtle (representing Water) and The Golden Phoenix (representing Earth). These two new forms will replace Bear (Water) and Monkey (Earth). Sue Reed has been studying these two new forms in depth over the last five years and looks forward to sharing these powerful forms with us on this special retreat.


The work will be simple and easy to learn as well as fun. Casa Corra is a healthy, peaceful environment with good food and beautiful scenery. Our retreats aim to have a nice family community feel to them with people returning year on year.



This retreat will be co-led by Thalbert Allen (Co-founder, Director and Principle Tutor of CECK) and Sue Reed (Mindfulness Teacher (AIM) and Chi Kung Teacher). Sue and Thalbert both have over 15 years Chi Kung experience.



Join Sue and Thalbert using the teachings of the College of Element Chi Kung as we harness the power of the elements to gain freedom of movement while coming into balance with the universe.



College of Elemental Chi Kung retreats are always in beautiful surroundings and are set up in a way that allows time to enjoy and take in these surroundings with excellent food and restful accommodation.


Recharge your energy systems this summer - come and play with the College for a few days and reap the benefits healing Chi Kung has to offer.
