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.

Derek was the right teacher at the right time for me.  He did his job as a teacher by guiding and pointing me in the right direction.  Due to the special nature of our sessions, Derek did not expound on the teachings (Dao De Jing, Qing Jing Jing, etc.) as much as he would have liked to.  Instead, he used his knowledge and wisdom to answer my questions and explained how to integrate some of the teachings into my life.  I was especially amazed at Derek's flexibility and patience, which made my experience very much enjoyable.  In the end, I can go home and practice what I have discovered from my time with Derek.
