The world is a series of inter-penetrating subtle energy realms
Patrick presents an intelligent synthesis of Daoist/Buddhist, Gnostic/Sufi & Yogic internal work – the worldwideway – which leads deeply inside towards the one formless Source, which has no name.
Immersed 50yrs in those 3 great esoteric streams, Patrick authored 4 books on Taiji & meditation (in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Chinese) and guides a world network of 100 teachers and 1000s of students.
Patrick asserts the great purpose of Taiji is the great purpose of life itself – internal evolution.
"Though they practice my methods, not following my (inner) way they are not my students"
Born in Fuzhou, China. Trained from the age of 14 in Fujian White Crane (白鶴拳), 18 Buddha boxing (罗汉拳) and Daoist Internal Alchemy under Old Master Pan YuBa (潘屿八), then later under Pan's famous disciple Master XieZhongxian (謝宗祥大师).
Taiji is in practice what 'Dao de Jing' expresses in principle. These principles remain universal throughout the known worlds, undiminished by their common reduction to intellectual ideas, emotional values, or religious rules, by the various races of the Earth.
Each of the 3 main realms has 3 sublevels, giving 9 energy clouds. Meditation works on the deep structures of the mind. It is a serious and potentially dangerous exercise. The ideal is to follow a senior master who has at least 20 years of self-cultivation. However, few who teach meditation fit this situation. Everywhere, inexperienced people foolishly play with the internal life of others, changing road signs and taking shortcuts, all for the purpose of power or money. Students are led astray, wasting time and energy on superficial or imaginary methods.
