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.

My time in Wudangshan was life changing. Derek is an amazing teacher who not only has a wealth of knowledge about Daoism, but truly lives the principles. I had four days of training with Derek in a beautiful environment with a natural energy that healed, inspired, and lifted my spirit. Our days were well structured, yet unfolded organically and allowed time for self-reflection, contemplation, personal practice, and even a nap or two! I will carry the lessons learned from Derek and the Wudang Mountains with me for a lifetime. If you are looking to find your true-self and grow as a person, look no further.
