Our program is crafted to bring about potent habitual changes that harmonize your body, mind, and soul, leaving you feeling revitalized, inspired and high on life.

Chi Quests were created by Trent Banyan after facilitating and co facilitating over a decade various global wellness retreats, Rites of Passages and conscious events. He curates the program during the Chi Quests around the Pillars of Chi Flow, a guide to identify where you are leaking and wasting your (chi) energy and identifying how and what you can do to cultivate and harness it.

Guided by Trent and his team of expert facilitators, you will embark on a journey of self-discovery and transformation, where you will gain a deep understanding of the inner mechanics of Chi and its transformative power.

Our Chi Quests take a holistic approach to wellness, where we infuse each experience with life-enhancing tools derived from Traditional Chinese Medicine & Qi Gong, educational workshops, connection with the culture of the land, relationship-building activities, and most of all, adventurous trips that will take you on a transformational journey.

We believe that adventure and fun are an integral part of wellness, and that is why our retreats include activities such as hiking, cacao and dance to help you connect with your body, mind, and spirit. Our adventures are not only fun, they also have many activities targeting your self care. They generally have a form of challenge in one way or another that helps to make them even more transformational as they assist you in breaking out of your comfort zone and discover new aspects of yourself.

Our Chi Quests are for anyone who is ready for a transformational boost, wants to learn about Traditional Chinese Medicine & Qi Gong, is looking to connect with like-minded souls, needs to retreat and have everything taken care of for them. They also build self-awareness and support your body, mind and spirit.

Join us on a journey of self-discovery and let us help you recharge, rejuvenate, help you feel high on chi and reconnect you to your true potential through the adventures of Chi Quests.

from previous Chi Quest retreats

My retreat experience was awesome! I had no idea what to expect – but it was one of the best things I could have done for myself.


The best thing in the history of things I’ve done for myself EVER.

For me it really was the perfect balance of feeling I had time to relax, chill out and switch off by reading or walking or going in the spa, to connecting with others, connecting over meals, exercising, receiving treatments, have fun with dance and group chats around the circle plus Trent’s wisdom, it was all just perfect. It was nourishing both inside and out. I left feeling incredibly energised, feeling lighter and stronger in body, enlightened in mind and purer and more deeply loved at heart. I’ve managed to maintain that to some degree as I really believe that some of the teaching were instilled in me on a deep level of inner understanding.
Thank you again from the bottom of my heart. I am honoured to have been on this journey with all of the beautiful humans who I shared this time with.
