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 had an incredible time studying and meditating with Derek on a beach in the North Shore of Boston. It was a unique and rare opportunity to expand my specific knowledge and understanding of the practice of meditation.

Derek has a wide perspective and valuable insights into the fundamental and subtle philosophical and spiritual concepts delineated in Buddhism, Confucianism and Daoism. He is wise, articulate and clear when explaining various perspectives and ways of achieving his student's individual goals.

Derek’s way of teaching is effective because he guides and informs openly. His ability to help me identify my particular area of interest, and his recommendation of further resources on the topics and practices were right on target. We designed a course of action to continue my personal growth and development of balance, harmony, vitality, and energy.
