Understanding The Shen Foundation

What is the Shen Foundation's mission?

The Shen Foundation, founded by Dr. Guo Bisong in 2008, opened a meditation retreat center in the Swiss Alps' Lötschberg Valley.

It serves as a meditation retreat, community center, and Airbnb haven. The foundation's mission is to uplift humanity by promoting balanced and sustainable living through courses like "4 Times 4 Health," which align daily and seasonal rhythms for personal and global transformation.

Why does the Shen Foundation believe our civilization is at a tipping point?

The Shen Foundation believes our civilization is at a tipping point due to an imbalance between intellect and compassion, leading to greed and environmental degradation. This imbalance threatens human and planetary well-being.


How does the Shen Foundation propose to address the current imbalance in society?

The Shen Foundation addresses the imbalance by encouraging individuals to align with the planet's evolving consciousness, promoting a balance between intellect and compassion to create a healthier, more harmonious world.


What courses does the Shen Foundation offer?

The Shen Foundation offers courses like "4 Times 4 Health," which teach participants to align their energy flow with natural rhythms, reducing stress and disease while enhancing well-being. To this day, "4 Times 4 Health" has helped patients see marked improvements in their health, including those with conditions such as cancer, Huntington's disease, depression, and more.

How does the "4 Times 4 Health" course benefit participants?

The "4 Times 4 Health" course helps participants reduce stress, mitigate disease, and achieve a deeper understanding of their true nature by aligning their activities with their body's natural energy flow.

Listen to Your Body shows how you can promote health and natural well-being by modifying everyday actions to improve the flow of qi (the universal principle of energy). Breathing, eating, drinking, resting, washing, and many other small but vital actions - if carried out in the right way - can result in profound changes in body function.

To give readers an understanding of the body's own natural medicine, the authors provide a clear explanation of the foundations of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) with reference to qi and its flow through the body's meridians, the balance of yin and yang, and the body's energy centres. Readers will learn how to ""tune in"" to the signals the body transmits to warn of impending health problems; numerous case histories illustrate how this highly developed information system of the body works.


Later chapters address the art of relaxation, bringing together the TCM approach to health with recent scientific studies. Finally the authors describe in detail how to apply the natural medicine of the body to daily life. They discuss illness prevention and provide specific guidance for the management of a range of health disorders. Exercises and simple routines are given, together with the basis for their therapeutic effect.

Internal Alchemy is an ancient Daoist practice of self-cultivation. It provides a path to becoming a Daoist Sage; an enlightened individual who lives virtuously and in harmony with society and nature. Such individuals are able to act selflessly for the good of all.

As we stand at a critical point in the development of humanity, with growing disharmony and unease within society and the environment, the need for the Daoist Sage is greater than ever. This book brings together the teachings of Internal Alchemy, through the experience and wisdom of a living Daoist master.Preserving and clarifying the traditional knowledge and practices, while making them relevant to the concerns and events of the modern world.

Through her shared experiences, personal stories and training, the reader will see that the Daoist Sage is not merely an idealised, theoretical concept, but a very real state of attainment that anybody can reach provided that they bring enough dedication and perseverance to their journey.
