  • Daoism – Old vs New Methods

    I experienced that many westerns think different about Daoism or have a different idea of what Daoism should be. Here I want to address some of the common misunderstandings westerners mostly have about Daoism.

  • The Invisible Unity – Dao De Jing Chapter 56

    Chapter 56 follows the principles of equality. We asked Master Yuan Xiu Gang about the deeper meaning.

  • The Invisible Mother – Dao De Jing Chapter 6

    谷神不死 是謂玄牝

    “The valley spirit does not die, it is called the invisible mother.”

    玄牝之門 是謂天地根

    “The gate of the invisible mother is the root of heaven and earth.”

    綿綿若存 用之不勤

    “Formless but appears to exist, use it and it never depletes.”

  • Top 6 Rules for a Traditional Wudang School

    Traditional schools build character and improve the individual. It is the tradition which keeps everybody oriented and on the right path.

  • The Windbox – Dao De Jing Chapter 5

    We held the interview completely in Chinese and then constructed a translation with our translator who is a native speaker and Coach in our academy and follower of the Daoist doctrines for many years.

  • Master Yuan Xiu Gang Explains The Concept of Dao and Daoist Practice

    Many people over confuse this topic but the Dao should be simplified to make its deep principles reality. From simple things, many things can come. Looking at yourself and improve gradually without any magical tricks and following the simple way of the master will help you to achieve your goal.

  • The Foreigner Classes at Yuan Xiu Gang’s School

    The foreigner class is specifically designed for people from other countries who come for a short-term or long-term stay. The classes are easier than the Chinese traditional class but they are more optimized to get an understanding of the Wudang martial arts and consider the fact that most foreigners are older than the 13y old students at the Chinese traditional class. 

  • The Current Dangers of Monkey Valley

    After the great flooding of Xiaoyao Valley, also known as Monkey Valley, a lot of pathways and bridges were destroyed and till today not restored. The bus station in the valley is fine, but if you want to walk the path up to the golden top, the valley may conceal some dangers which are important for tourists to know.

  • Wudang Friends – Pictures

    We found many new friends and a lot of new impressions. I want to share a few pictures of our most important moments

  • Wudang Martial Arts – Flexible Body and Mind

    The standard stretching routines in the traditional Wudang schools demand high flexibility to improve ones internal power. Being flexible puts less strain on the body and relaxation becomes more efficient. This will prevent injury and establishes freedom in the mind. Freeing oneself from physical and mental blockades to prevent stagnation of energy.

These two chapters are important for understanding the master’s ambition. It is a common mistake to question what is not understood under the rule of heaven. The experience or so the Jade that is described in chapter 70 is why and how the master chose this path for his students to follow.

Between all of the politics and competitions, deep in the valleys of the Wudang mountains is the last refuge. The purpose is to live in the mountains and practice the internal arts. Deep in the Yiren valley is a circle of seekers and believers of the truth.
