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 is one of those rare type of teachers who you don't meet too often: he is both intellectual and wise. His approach is both analytical and practical. He is humble, down to earth, and has a wealth of information. Studying the core chapters of Dao De Jing gave me a new understanding of this great work, of which I previously knew very little. Derek's teaching method is interactive; instead of monologue there is dialogue. Often our conversations took many unexpected - and sometimes quite hilarious - turns, which added to the richness of his teachings. Derek's meditation practise and teaching included sitting type, movement and the use of mantras. The class contained two parts: first the 'outer', theoretical part of learning, followed by the 'inner', experiental part involving meditation. Combined, the two gave me new tools to access different areas of myself and my life, and new ways of seeing and understanding both. If you are looking for a teacher who has a profound understanding of Chinese and Asian culture and who knows a great deal about spirituality and how to develop this side of yourself, I can warmly recommend Derek.
