Event Details


Are you in need of a boost in chi and want to feel more motivated, alive, connected and on purpose? Then this 6 day immersion is for you!

You will learn how to Identify key areas of your life where you can cultivate and harness your chi by working through the Pillars of Chi Flow and practice powerful skills to help microdose on chi throughout your day.

What is ‘Chi’?
Chi is known in some traditions as prana, kundalini power, spirit, life force or simply energy. Its concept is derived directly from Taoist philosophy. Chi has also been translated as ‘air’ and ‘breath’ and figuratively as ‘material energy’ so it means life force or energy flow. It is the vital force and transformational power of energy that binds all objects and activities in nature into one organic system of form and function.

High on Chi uses the 8 Pillars of Chi Flow as a blueprint to identify areas of one’s life where they are wasting/leaking their chi and how they can improve it. When you are high on chi you are in the flow of life, you feel incredible and your beliefs, perceptions and mental state feels more balanced.


What’s Included?

Pillars of Chi Flow

Learn how sleep, nutrition, chi-cycle living, your environment, therapeutic exercise, meditation, self-care practices and having a sense of purpose and meaning affects your chi levels. We will greatly enhance these areas of your life and your overall chi levels through various talks, discussions and applying practices.

Daily Morning Practice

Each morning will begin at sunrise with sun-gazing and meditation followed by various chi practices inspired by qi gong and yoga. We will begin the day mindfully and prepare ourselves for the day ahead. Take away a morning ritual practice that will support your overall chi levels.

Group Healing Sessions

Most days there are some form of Group Esoteric Acupuncture or a visit to The Pyramids of Chi, for an Ancient Sound Healing. There is also the opportunity to have additional massages at Villa Gaia.

Nature Hikes

There will be an early morning wake up to summit a sacred mountain and a sunset walk through beautiful rice fields.

Healthy Meals – All included.



Hi, I am the Creator and Director of High on Chi and live in the Noosa Hinterland on an organic farm in a tiny home with my wife and young daughter. I am a fully registered Acupuncturist and Chinese Medicine Practitioner and have been in private practice since the beginning of 2015. Since that time, I have worked with Noosa Confidential a sort after private rehabilitation program as an Acupuncturist, Yoga Therapist and Mindfulness Trail Facilitator. I was also the Program Leader of Dream Catcher Rehab, a program that ran Jost Sauer’s Recovery System.

I travelled extensively throughout my 20s and left a very well-paid job in construction in pursuit of creating the life I desired. In 2010, I found my calling to begin studying Traditional Chinese Medicine during my time in a 1-month meditation course in Guatemala. It was a pivotal turning point in my life. I moved from a life of material abundance, alcohol, drugs and partying to a holistic lifestyle filled with yoga and meditation practices. I found and connected into the power of chi (energy) and observed how it moves through everything. The ‘chi’ highs and reaching altered states naturally, is one of the main reasons why I have not turned back to old patterns.

Now, when I am not climbing mountains, I am providing Chi Flow Consultations and Esoteric Acupuncture from my High on Chi clinic space on the Sunshine Coast in Australia as well as online via zoom. I also facilitate various events and mentoring programs as well as on transformational retreats.
