The curriculum will include meditation, qigong, and form practice throughout the day with a talk and discussion each evening after dinner.

Essential in the practice of the Hun Yuan system is the idea of Nourishing. It is only through the understanding and practice of Nourishing that health and vitality are cultivated, and true skill develops.
