My primary Taoist teacher Master Mantak Chia who woke me up 25 years ago to the fact that spirituality is also about the body. His example and dedication to spreading the Taoist arts throughout the world continues to inspire awe in me. Master Chia first introduced me to Chi Nei Tsang and the Inner Alchemy practices of Fusion and Kan and Li. These gifts, these crown jewels I am forever eternally grateful for as they are such a part of me now.

Michael Winn who first transmitted  to me. This form of Qi Gong I consider the greatest spiritual gift I ever received, for this I'm eternally grateful. I also appreciate so much Michael's clarity in teaching Inner Alchemy, his clarity about the path of immortality has really assisted me in understanding my own journey.

Shashi Soluna my dear Taoist sister and fellow teacher whose commitment to the "Great Love" beyond the personal continues to inspire awe and humble me. Shashi has woken up in me how important even the smallest inconsequential details are.

Viggo Johansen my Taoist brother, dear friend and partner in The White Tiger Company. Your dedication to presence and purpose and the ability to be hear and now continue to inspire me to live life as fully as you do.
