Retreats for Schools & Businesses

Teamwork may be the most important variable in successful professional practice. To a significant extent, one’s ability to be helpful depends in large measure on effectiveness in building teams and contributing to team efforts.

In my opinion there is nothing that exemplifies the art of teamwork more than a human body in full health! 70 trillion individual cells working “together” perfectly from day till dawn. Keeping us alert, keeping us energized and allowing us to create.

As a Health Coach, I provide Team Building Retreats that will educate your students or employees on the key components of a successful team - teamwork, communication, trust and selflessness. Without a balance of these essentials a team will lack vitality, health and direction and will most likely never attain its goals.

The Sun God Mountain Retreat

It is a great place to visit and stay for Schools, Families, Businesses and Tourists offering a beautiful environment for team-work building, rest & recuperation and deeper understanding of traditional Chinese medicine and Chinese culture.

A key theme of the Sun God Mountain Retreat is preservation of nature and local communities. They preserve nature and wildlife and practice sustainability in all that they do. With 194 acres of sub-tropical hills and forest, the Sun God Mountain Retreat offers many beautiful places to spend time in nature.
