The inspiration and support for my work comes from the ancient Chinese philosophy – Taoism:
living in dynamic equilibrium with our environment, in harmonious relationship with others, the world around, and ultimately striving for a peaceful way of being.
Taoism is very much about being fully present with whatever the moment brings, and I have found this to be a powerful guide in life, keeping me grounded and connected to my inner wisdom. For me, this leads to a renewed sense of purpose, and wide open possibilities, as well as deeper authenticity, more loving relationships, and even a sense of peace.
I don’t believe in coincidences, or mistakes, but that our entire past has brought us to where we are, and that it’s up to us to map our own future. In 2015, my journey with medical qi gong began, and I enrolled in intensive instructor training with Chinese Doctor and medical qi gong Master, Ahjarn Toh, in the north of Thailand. The training involves movement and flow, a form, acupuncture, qi massage, taoist philosophy and Dharma teaching.
For some time now, I have recognised the body as more than a physical anatomy, that it is in fact, our seat of wisdom, self knowing, and a pathway to cultivate the connectedness of the human being with the universe. The more I study and practice, the more awareness and insights happen, and I feel increasingly empowered in my overall well-being, and life purpose. It has become a life-long discipline of continuous study and growth.
