For an additional fee, local experts can provide instruction in traditional arts, such as Chinese painting, calligraphy and Chinese medical herbology.
From the retreat center, you may take several side trips. In the vicinity of scenic Mt. Qingcheng, you may visit Confucian and Daoist temples, view an enormous bronze statue of Laozi and meditate in the Heavenly Master Cave.
In the beautiful, exotic city of Chengdu you may visit the Kongzi (Confucius) Temple and perhaps a traditional school of Chinese Medicine, depending on the interest of the group and the availability of the school.
On side trips to Mt. Qingcheng you can relax in natural hot springs, bathe in waterfalls, and meditate in caves formerly inhabited by the panda (for extra fee).
The highlight for many participants is the Tibetan tour. You travel by car or bus to the scenic Aba Tibetan region in Sichuan province, noted for its breathtakingly beautiful, snow covered mountains and extensive grasslands. You can visit Tibetan Buddhist Temples and dance with Tibetan people.
