2022 Immersion Camps
MAY 1-15: TAI JI
AUGUST 12-26: BA GUA
Take the time to go deep into the practice of Wudang Internal martial arts and self healing. This is an immersion training program designed to teach martial discipline and daoist philosophy as a way of life. Wake up, train, eat, study, train, meditate, sleep. This year we have 2 separate sessions of 14 day blocks with our basic curriculum plus one focus art.
FOOD AND LODGING
This year we will be running our intensive courses at Cedar Bloom Farm. Located in the Illinois Valley of Southern Oregon, on 100 acres of forested land, nestled alongside the Illinois River, just east of the Rogue River and Siskiyou National Forest.
Camping for students is $40/night in addition to tuition. Explore the Farm:
Luxurious outdoor kitchen equipped with gas stoves, counter space, cookware and utensils. Students will bring their own food and pack out trash.
Students will do all of their food shopping in town on rest days. They will bring a week’s worth of provisions at a time and prepare their own meals in the kitchen. Students can collaborate for meals if they want to and occasionally we will have organized group meals.
Those traveling without a vehicle, we will take you to the store for provisions when we pick you up and on rest days. The closest town is Cave Junction, located 5 minutes from camp. Laundry can also be done in town on rest days.

I wanted to properly thank you for everything you’ve done for us on the mountain. I had an amazing time learning from you and getting to cultivate in a quiet and serene setting. I also really enjoyed the company of everyone who came out for the program.
You really are a noble, generous person for sharing the teachings with us. You’re helping a lot of people grow and change for the better. I can honestly say that you’re mentorship is helping me to grow up to be the person I wanna be. And this is only the beginning of it.
First, I just want to acknowledge the opportunities and successes you’ve created for yourself. You are walking the walk and leading by example. Doors are opening for you and your path is becoming more clear. Congratulations does not account for all of your dedication and hard work. If I didn’t know you, one could see this just by watching you move. But I do know you, and your physical form pales in comparison to the grace, depth, and strength of your spirit. I am so grateful to have the opportunity to train, work, and learn from you.
With Honor, Graham
I really need to communicate to you how grateful I still am for the two months I worked with and learned from you. I would say that it’s the most beautiful, valuable, and spiritually memorable experience of my life time. The work on the land brought my heart hope about my existence that I thought I could never feel again.
When some of us are “fortunate” enough to find *you*, Lindsey, or be led to you…
…we are being given an opportunity to work together *with* you, to enhance our existence as the tiny organisms we are in this universe…so we can get the bigger picture, of everyone’s purpose as a larger whole.
