|Jerry from England:
"The Holland retreat was the first opportunity for me to get deeper into
Chi-lel and experience the more subtle aspects of the forms. I learnt a lot
from Luke and the other teachers and feel that my understanding of the
theory and forms (in my mind and body) has gone up a level. The retreat
helped me to realize that Chi-lel really is a complete qigong system of
great depth. My wall squatting has improved and by changing my
visualizations I have now reduced the chi pressure in my head. I feel my
health has improved too. I can honestly say that I felt an enormous amount
of love and compassion from everyone there and I am looking
forward to the next retreat. An additional bonus for me (as a music theory
researcher) was the revelation that qigong and music are closely related. I
had already discovered that music follows the fundamental laws of yin and
yang but when Luke remarked that the alternating rhythms of Chi-lel practice
also mirror those present in music I realized just how close the link was.
All in all I can thoroughly recommend going to a chi-lel retreat, especially
if, like myself, you have been practicing alone for a long time. It will
shed a new light on Chi-lel."
