In "The Land of Enchantment"
Give Your Attendees A Most Memorable Experience At
The Chi Center for Wisdom Healing Qigong

The Chi Center - 22 miles South of Santa Fe, New Mexico

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to consider our New Mexico retreat venue for your next retreat, conference, workshop, wedding, or other type of event.

Imagine yourself hosting your next gathering in the serene high desert of New Mexico in the romance of “Santa Fe style” architecture. The graceful and symmetrical lines of the enchanting adobe-style structures have their roots in dwellings built by the Anasazi  – the predecessors of the modern Pueblo people – two millennia ago. Our modern buildings have the classic features of contoured walls, flat roofs, vigas (round wooden beams), and inset art display nichos.

Whether it’s a mindful, creative, and enriching retreat experience, a special outdoor celebration, a large-scale event, or a place to bring together friends and family  — the enlivening energy, expansive topography, and diverse gathering spaces of The Chi Center will inspire and enhance your Santa Fe destination experience.

Our per-attendee pricing includes the use of all indoor and outdoor common areas, lodging, and 3 clean-lifestyle meals per day that can be customized for your tastes. We can include the use of our stages, fiber-optic internet, quality A/V equipment, and other presentation essentials, too.

We are ideally suited for overnight Retreats for 30 - 60 attendees, although we have indoor seating space for up to 300 people.  We also have RV hookups on the property and plenty of room for pavilion-style tents, parking, water, and high-speed internet that can serve daytime groups of up to 1,000 or more.

We host our own Wisdom Healing Qigong Retreats on the property about 16 weeks of the year, and are now able to share it for other life-enhancing events, too. We still have some dates open for 2020 and beyond. For reservations or inquiries connect with Sallena or Christopher by calling 800-959-2892 or writing to

We would love to explore the possibilities with you.

Discover The Magic Of The Land Of Enchantment

The Chi Center is located approximately 30 minutes outside of Santa Fe, near the quaint New Mexico village of Galisteo.  Our very unique venue sits upon 150 acres of a spectacularly scenic region in north-central New Mexico known as the Galisteo Basin. The wide-open spaces afford 360° panoramic sky-scapes, framed by the Ortiz Mountains to the southwest, the Cerrillos Hills to the west, the Sangre de Cristo Mountains to the northeast, and the Jemez Mountains to the northwest. The private countryside contains hiking trails, arroyos, ancient petroglyphs on a rocky ridge-line, giant cottonwood trees, 3 labyrinths, a rustic outdoor learning hut, a ceremonial water wheel, formal portales, decks, courtyards, and several fountains. One of the favorite campus features is a large tree-lined koi meditation pond, surrounded by statuary, a gazebo, outdoor rockers, recliners, and hammocks.

All this is set within the expansive and true darkness that reveals the Milky Way on the many clear nights. As soon as you arrive you will feel the same healing energy of the land that the native people of this area have been drawn to for thousands of years.

GALISTEO, NM. Replete with natural beauty that has made it a favorite filming location for the motion picture industry, Galisteo New Mexico is a small village-town with access to the many conveniences in nearby Santa Fe. May westerns have taken advantage of the stunning backdrops of this southwestern paradise, from Silverado to Crazy Heart – parts of Legion and Thor were also filmed here. Galisteo is home to a variety of artists and celebrities who value the peace and privacy afforded by its location; Ambassador David T. Killion, artists Bruce Nauman and Susan Rothenberg, and fashion designer Tom Ford all hang their hats here.

Though secluded, Galisteo is not remote: the nearby towns of Santa Fe, El Dorado, and Glorieta offer culture, shopping, dining and schools that make Galisteo appealing to even the most cosmopolitan. The Agora Shopping Center just 15 minutes away offers local restaurants, boutiques and groceries, while the sights and sounds of Santa Fe are just 25 minutes to the north. Outdoor activities abound, in line with the New Mexico lifestyle – visit the Pecos National Park, journey through the Cibola National Forest, or hike the stunning Galisteo Basin Preserve to fully enjoy all this beautiful land has to offer.


SANTA FE COUNTY, NM. With dry, warm summers and snow-filled winters, Santa Fe County is beautiful year-round. A high-desert county, the elevation begins around 5,000 ft above sea level and reaches more than 7,100 ft at its highest points. The incredible terrain provides world-class hiking, biking and skiing; indeed, one of the New Mexico’s largest ski resorts, Ski Santa Fe, is located here. Over 400 miles of mountain biking trails cross the county, and USA Today, Singletracks Magazine, and the International Mountain Biking Association have all honored the county as one of the top mountain biking areas in America. Also awarded for its 600 miles of hiking trails, the area is considered a premiere destination for trail and high altitude running, and horseback riding, fly fishing, and golfing are top-notch as well.

If a more relaxed lifestyle is preferred, Santa Fe County can deliver exceptional opportunities to see exciting art, architecture, and historic landmarks. Traditional Native American culture is celebrated alongside American artists like Georgia O’Keefe, and many galleries showcase upcoming artists. Theater and opera thrive as well, with family friendly installations like Meow Wolf sharing the limelight with the celebrated Santa Fe Opera. The cutting-edge productions are set in a breathtaking outdoor theater, whose electronic libretto system (one of only two in the world) delivers translations of the works directly to each audience member’s seat. With so much beauty in one place, Santa Fe County is sure to move you: as D.H. Lawrence said in 1917, “Touch the country [of New Mexico] and you will never be the same again.”

The Lotus Flower Kiva – A Sacred Place For Learning, Reflection, And Transformation
There are several unique gathering and teaching areas, as well. Our most requested and beloved space is a 50-foot round post and beam kiva. The softly curved walls – halfway submerged into the earth – enrich and anchor the sounds inside the build­ing, mak­ing it the per­fect place for rest, reflec­tion, movement, dance, teaching, and sound therapies. In the tradition of Native Americans, the kiva is a special type of sacred building designed for ceremonies and important meetings and seats up to 140 auditorium style.
The Compassion Dome
The newest structure on the grounds –The Compassion Dome, with stages, lighting, and seating for 300 – is a large geodesic dome. The design is rooted in the ancient science of sacred geometry and is widely acknowledged as a perfect universal shape. When inside the dome, occupants experience a dual feeling of open spaciousness combined with a sense of solidity and grounding. It’s a bright, fun, open space that can easily be configured for dance parties, product booths, auditorium seating, and more.
