“When we surf, we connect to the ocean. When we walk barefoot on the earth, we connect to it’s energy. When we meditate we connect to our Heart Mind. When we move with consciousness we connect to our body. When we learn this…and when we master this….then we have FREEDOM.”

The combination of surfing epics waves with Taoist Meditation and Qigong, plus education on complete body health management is a world first for surfing retreats.

We teach unique systems for ensuring physical health and fitness, combined with once highly guarded secrets of Taoist Meditation & Qigong (energy work) that are only found in combination at Tao de Libertad .

During this retreat you will surf the many waves that Siargao Island in the Philippines has to offer. Plus you will learn specific techniques and learn how to embody certain principles that are needed to bring a feeling of flow into your daily life.

One thing that cannot be guaranteed on a surf trip…… is surf. At Tao de Libertad we can guarantee that every moment of this retreat will be filled with new, unique and rewarding experiences.

You will gain knowledge that will change your life. Physically, you’ll cope with the strains of surfing. You will feel less rigid and more mobile. Mentally, you will feel calmer and clear headed. Emotionally, you will be more balanced and centered. Spiritually, you will gain deeper insights into yourself; and form a greater connection within yourself, and with the natural world.

Our retreat leader, Nathan Head is a passionate Surfer, he is a Kung Fu Master, creator of Fit4Surf, Healer and Teacher of ancient techniques of Qigong and Meditation. Nathan will take you on the surf retreat of a lifetime. One where the memories and the techniques you learn will last forever.

WHY COME ON RETREAT WITH ME?

 

My aim is to teach you techniques and skills that will allow you to master your emotions, create a grounded and balanced self which will allow you to raise your consciousness, and unique physical skills to bring a level of health and vitality that has to be experienced to be understood. My Flow State Program is a practical system of self-development that provides a very clear path for you follow. The program combines ancient Taoist practices, with over 15 years of Qigong and 28 years of Kung Fu training and teaching; plus scientific research and techniques from the Heart Math Institute, and the latest knowledge on physical and mental health. It will enable you to complete a harmonious transformation of the body, mind and spirit by focusing on balancing “The 4 Realms of Self”. Physical, Mental, Emotional, and Spiritual.

 

 

 

I’ve been able to combine my passions into the Freedom and Flow Retreats for you. I am excited about this opportunity to provide a really deep transformational experience that will last a lifetime. My depth of knowledge in so many different, but complimenting disciplines, allows me to deliver programs and techniques that bring a harmonious balance to a person’s mental, emotional, physical and spiritual realms. I believe that a retreat should be designed to deliver results that provide a permanent change in your life. But.. you should also be shown how to fit all of what you learn into your busy life when you get home. To truly understand and have ownership of what I will teach you, the retreats are a minimum of 10 days. Fun, education, tourist activities, and of course recreation. All of the things you would like to do on a tropical island holiday.

​​​​​​​Surfing and other physical pursuits such as Free Diving are also passions of mine and I believe that through such physical pursuits we are able to experience flow while connecting with nature and all that it has to offer.
