A Word from Kai …

Yang Lao Shi is the most humble yet powerful teacher that I’ve been lucky enough to have in this lifetime. This trip to attend one of his last open intensives is the journey of lifetime. In addition to the 8 day of TaiQi training he will be sharing insights into Ancient Maps of Daoist Alchemy and unlocking their Noursihing Life secrets.
We will also dine on some of the most delicious food I’ve ever eaten and meet local characters who could easily come right out of a movie with their grit, humor and humility.
This is an intimate journey and I’m so grateful to any of you who have the courage to claim your spot and come ready to learn.
Tuition includes access to Wu Style Short Form video content so you arrive ready to dive deep. Please don’t hesitate to contact us.
We also include a 12 lesson self-study audio Chinese language course. With 30 minutes a day you will be amazed at how much fluency you can learn.
