Your accommodation would be at Indigo Eagle Sanctuary. You can choose the following accommodation types:

Martial arts cabin

Grab a bed in a cabin - a logwood cabin is right next to the action. This cabin will be shared by four to six people, it contains two double beds and two single bunked beds. There is a furnace for inner heating and a deck with a gas stove and a tub.

Authentic native American teepee: rent a bed in the teepee

The location has a real native American style teepee. It is a little away from the camping group but it overlooks the entire valley. You'll wake up and see the sunrise from an eagle's viewpoint. It contains three single beds, and it has its own outside fireplace and outhouse.

Martial arts camping: set up your tent or hammock

You are invited to bring your own tent and enjoy a completely natural experience in this wonderful valley. This is real life camping, be prepared to live without common luxuries. Freshwater is abundant, however. Qi Alchemy Wellness will have a limited amount of tents to rent. This is a real-deal camping experience, so Qi Alchemy Wellness expect you to be experienced or ready for staying out in the woods.

They do have space designated for camping however, and it will be soft grassy land with plenty of space. You can also take your tent away from the practice area and be on your own deeper in the woods. Bring all necessary gear to ensure your own comfort.


This week will be a week of being around highly trained, highly skilled martial artists as your peers. Bring your training gear, swords, staffs, bamboo sticks, and more. This is a weekend for all level martial artists to come out, learn from each other, meet other martial artists, play together, build campfires, share word circles, and the option of a sweat lodge is available.

This is a bonding experience to grow with new friends. Feel united with one another. Take the politics out of life for once and come together as brothers and sisters. Everyone will get an opportunity to share if they like. Every morning, you'll follow a different meditation practice or vote on the same one all week, the choice is up to you.

Wake up for morning meditation and Qi Gong practice, share a prepared breakfast, practice Kung Fu basics, grappling, light contact sparring or push hands, downtime to relax (enjoy a walk or read), lunch break, ending the stillness standing meditation and stance training, light stretching, and breathwork. Followed by dinner and campfire word circle.
