The Freedom & Flow Surfing, Meditation & Qigong Retreat

15th SEP – 26th SEP, 2018 – Available!

30th SEP – 11th OCT, 2018 – FULL

A surf retreat like no other…  

Surfers have a profound connection to the earth. We immerse ourselves in it’s oceans, we watch the cycle of the winds, tides and seasons. We understand the cyclical nature of the earth and it’s natural phenomenon. It is the physical and mental connection with the earth and the forces of nature which culminate in the act of riding a wave, the physical manifestation of these forces, which makes surfing so special.

There is a concept that is experienced while riding a wave, which is called Flow. Flow is being present. Engaged in the moment. The Now. Everything else disappears, one’s focus is purely centered on the act of riding a wave. This complete engagement in the moment is what gives surfers the elated feeling which is associated with being in a state of Flow.

“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.
