What to Expect


    When Dr. John Thie retired from 30 years of chiropractic practice, he designed what he felt was the ideal setting for working with clients; a retreat in which each client receives several balances over several days, and observes others being balanced, as well as learning and practicing the techniques that they experience and observe.

    Matthew Thie continues in this tradition, balancing each participant for their own personal issues and goals, whether they be physical, energetic, mental/emotional, spiritual, etc.  It is recommended that each participant bring 3-5 life issues that they would like to explore and balance during the retreat.  The IKC, TFH 1-4 curriculum will be covered, with opportunities to practice with other participants, primarily in the evenings.


    Partly to accommodate people traveling from every part of the world and partly to offer an in-depth immersion into the system, the 7-day workshop (2 days in Los Angeles & 5 days in Malibu), is very INTENSIVE, incorporating 60 hours of training into 7 days, including Morning, Afternoon, and Evening (independent) practice sessions.  This allows the avid student to complete the 4 Levels in 7 consecutive days of Workshops.


    The retreat on a hilltop in Malibu, California  is a true Retreat.  Accommodation and meals are included in the price of the workshop for Monday through Friday (from lunch on day one to lunch on the last day), allowing a complete immersion in the TFH system, and time for quiet contemplation, away from  the everyday world (there are no televisions or phones in the basic "monk's quarters" style of rooms - although there is WIFI in the lobby!). 




    TFH Level 1 will be held at a private home in Los Angeles (SFV), December 2-3, Saturday & Sunday. There is recommended accommodation near the Level 1 Venue. Room and board is NOT included in the Level 1 weekend part of the Intensive.

    TFH Levels 2-4 will be held at the Retreat Center from December 4-8, Monday-Friday.  Room and Board (from lunch on day one to lunch on the last day) IS included in the Retreat portion of the Intensive.

    More detailed information will be provided upon registration of workshop, but please feel free to reach us in the "Contact" menu" if you have questions.

What People are Saying

L.N. THROSSELL, Perth, Australia

“The TFH training at the Serra Retreat in Malibu was fabulous! The quiet, relaxed and spiritually nurturing environment was a bonus on top of the interaction with other participants from all over the world lead by an expert instructor, Matthew. I have very fond memories of my time there and was very glad I made the commitment to attend all the way from Western Australia, a journey of more than 20 hours in the air. Thank you Matthew.”
