The chinese civilization is blessed with a very rich culture of wisdom -

Especially Buddhist, confucian and daoist philosophy.

Great saints and sages have arisen throughout the 5000 years of recorded Chinese history. They left us with blessings and teachings that represent the core of Buddhist, Confucian and Daoist philosophy in China.

The purpose of this site is to share some of the teachings from  the masters of Buddhist, confucian and daoist philosophy, so we can integrate their wisdom into our modern life for the upliftment and fulfillment of all.

I wanted to give myself a 60th birthday gift that would change my life. For well over a year, I had researched places to study about truth, my essence, my energy, my spirit. I found my gift in China, studying with Derek for a month in the Wudang Mountains.

Derek is a gentle, intelligent and wise sage, although he does not refer to himself as one, who imparts age old truths of Daoism and Buddhism with clarity and heart. His interpretations of the Dao De Jing are profound and full of insight into human nature and human transcendence.

My time spent here studying with Derek has already changed my life in ways I hadn’t even thought possible for me.
