Hello Tao Bums, I've been working on this project lately, that I mentioned here before. I'm building a Taoist hermitage/temple in the mountains of Southern Ecuador, close to the crest of the mighty Andes mountain range. I invested all my money without quite finishing the place, so this is a request for donations. I made a crowdfunding page and video to help explain the situation.

 

So if you are moved to help with a donation that is wonderful, if not then enjoy the video that will show you what I've been up to lately and the beautiful place I've been living recently, and you get to see what I look and sound like =)

 

Here's a link to the video, enjoy:

 

Here's a link to the crowdfunding page I made: http://igg.me/at/helptienshan

 

Of course all are invited to come and try being hermits while practicing the Taoist internal arts.

 

May the Force be with you,

Steve Gray, AKA Starjumper7, Black Dragon, at your service.

what an interesting project.

obviously his heart is in the right place.

 

His past posts made me think he was only a lad of 24.

So hard to tell from the words.

 

 

 

Note to self: judge less, stay open.

Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming will continue to teach at the YMAA Retreat Center until 2024. Those interested in full-time training on the mountain should apply soon. Now's the chance to train with a renown martial arts teacher and author!

It's nice to see him still going. :) I always thought he looked a very jolly fellow in his videos. I've also enjoyed what I've read of his books.

More than anything else, that picture is what would make me want to train with him most.
