>Training courses with Valérie Pourtier



This training course takes place in our village set at the foot of Cangshan mountain in Dali, Yunnan province.


Set in the quiet and authentic surroundings, our days are rhythmed by the exploration of the processes of our consciousness, the different levels of perception and their consequences on the vision of ourselves and the world we live in. Through the practice of meditation and Qi gong or Tai ji quan exercises you will learn techniques which are useful for this exploration.
