Orizon Center for Life & Creation
Crete, Greece

Have you ever wished you could get to the root of physical and emotional patterns that are maybe the opposite of your idea of freedom? Chi Nei Tsang is a gently powerful, elegantly efficient means for healing on all levels. Chi Nei Tsang has helped countless people out of trauma or illness and into health. No matter what your level of training in the healing arts, or even if your career path is something completely different; no matter if you want to heal yourself or help others find their healing, this retreat provides a unique way to take the needle off the skipping record and start playing a new song with your health and your career!

Gilles Marin has been one of the main forces bringing Chi Nei Tsang out to the West since beginning his work with Mantak Chia in 1983.

He is one of the senior teachers of the Universal Healing Tao; the founder and director of the Chi Nei Tsang Institute and Taoist Healing Energetics in Oakland, CA; the co-director of L’Institut de Chi Nei Tsang in Nice, France; the author of “Healing From Within With Chi Nei Tsang” and “The Five Elements and Six Conditions: a Taoist Approach to Emotional Healing, Psychology, and Internal Alchemy”; and a recent inductee into the Massage Hall of Fame.

Gilles has guided thousands of people into their own healing and into learning how to use Chi Nei Tsang to assist others to access the healing power of their own life force.

We are so fortunate to also welcome two more renowned teachers, both of whom are knowledgeable proteges of Gilles! Stephanie Wilger will be offering a day long Women's Practices class, resulting in  working with the Jade Egg  and Mary Ellen Derwis will be teaching 5 days of Chasing the Winds. Having these  women add their formidable gifts to the course is going to take an already extraordinary retreat up to 11!

The perfect place to access the healing power of the Five Elemental Forces in an unmistakeable kind of way is, of course, Crete, the home of Asclepius, heroic father of healing, and, specifically, at The Orizon Center For Life and Creation.

Ingrid Margarita founded the Orizon Center because her passion for life and creation led her on a journey of discovery, which inevitably led to understanding her ability in the sacred task of helping others find their own passion for life and creation.

Luckily, Ingrid fell in love with Crete and with Petros Kokotsakis, a Cretan man with a family farm where he tends the land blending tradition and modernity to raise animals, fruits, and vegetables to supply the restaurant Akrimios that cares for the guests of Orizon with all organic food, homemade cheeses, and golden Cretan hospitality.

It’s an honor to be welcomed with such grace and joy to Crete, an island of mythology, exquisite nature, exceptional culture and history to deepen our knowledge of and healing with Chi Nei Tsang.


Thank you for your interest in this life changing retreat!
