Internal Alchemy in Zagoria Greece

From the sacred mountain of Wudang, China to the majestic mountain of Timfi, Greece, the teachings of Master Hu Xue Zhi on DaMo Qigong and Wudang Taoist Internal Alchemy travel from one great ancient civilization to another.

In the heart of the Vikos–Aoös National Park, one of UNESCO’s Geoparks, we find one of the most beautiful Zagoria Villages, the Megalo (Greek: big) Papingo. It is built on the slopes of Mountain Timfi (2.497 m.), just below one of its peaks, the Astraka Towers (2.432 m). Another, tiny village Mikro (Greek: small) Papingo is built 2.5 km away, under the same peak.

First written mention of the Megalo Papingo appears in a 1325 decree of Byzantine Emperor Andronikos B’. From the 15th to the 17th century the village prospered greatly from trade and crafts, as did the whole area of Zagoria. Slowly however growth declined and in the 19th century people began to migrate.

Today, Megalo and Mikro Papingo have around 360 residents, who are proud of their heritage and happy to see tourist attraction increasing in the area.

We invited Muriel, to teach DaMo Qigong and Wudang Taoist Internal Alchemy in the traditional village of Papigo for 15 days; 

Muriel Kirton, who began her study of Taoist health and longevity practices almost 30 years ago, has been authorized to teach these practices in 2010, following intensive training over a 5 year period, under the guidance of Master Hu in Wudang Mountain, China.

Dao Yin, Qigong and Internal Alchemy Meditation will provide the initial ‘inner medicine’ for transformation.

For two weeks, in the heart of Nature we practice Internal Alchemy and explore the natural beauty of this secluded part of Greece that is as mysterious and hidden as its islands are exposed.

Surrounded by the powerful Energy and Beauty of the Mountains seize the opportunity to achieve health, longevity, inner tranquility and peacefulness.
