Qīxīng Tàijí TàoTemple and Monastery
is established for dedicated practitioners of the Way.
We are a full-time monastery with a private campus, though are open to the public for sunrise and sunset Tàijí 太極 and Qìgōng 氣功 sessions.
Sitting meditation sessions and other Taoist practices are available for advancing participants.
We are also a non-profit organization aiding economically underprivileged indigenous locals.
Our projects currently provide direct, substantial, and ongoing economic support to around 200 - 250 local men, women, and children.
Additionally our emergency relief programs have provided direct support and staple foods to over 850 local families.
We also supply interest-free loans to qualified locals.
In various ways, our projects benefit the entire local community of San Marcos La Laguna, as well as the natural ecosystem of Lake Atitlán.
Qixing has also raised the funds to build houses for families in other communities in Guatemala who've lost their homes to natural disaster.

Sunrise and sunset Tàijí and Qìgōng sessions:
Tàijí 太極 and Qìgōng 氣功 sessions are available by donation to serious prospective participants. To join our sessions requires a 4-week minimum participation commitment.
In an effort to keep these sessions available to the public, and to offset running costs of our Temple and non-profit organizations social projects, we request a minimum donation from non San Marcos residents.
Residents of San Marcos (one year or more) may donate what
you are able according to your situation.
