The tour to Wudang with Derek gave me a break from my busy life in Hong Kong, where my soul and body found tranquillity and freshness.

It has been an amazing experience to study with Derek. Coupled with the gorgeous natural scenery of Wudang Mountain, Derek’s lectures on Chinese philosophy and spirituality inspired me in the way that I could see the world and myself from a different perspective. The life at Wudang Mountain was simple yet substantial. It helped me to find tranquility amid chaos. After studying with Derek, I have cleaned out the disorderly and confused mind and am ready to return to live at the hustle and bustle of the big city with poise and composure.
