Hi everyone.


I found this space some time back, but bookmarked it to come back to it... and finally I have.


I've been practicing Tai Ji and Qigong for almost 19 years, and also was a professional Chinese medicine practitioner, but have retired (maybe temporarily, maybe not) from clinical practice a little over a year ago. I used to teach Qigong and Tai Ji also, but am not doing that at present either, as well as lecture TCM students in History & Philosophy.


I'm currently working on a translation of the Yi Jing, and for some reason the Dao De Jing.


I'm hoping to be able to share ideas and assistance with translations, happy to also share my experience with medical and qigong related topics too, if anyone needs it.


One of the things I'm looking for is access to texts in original chinese, as well as translations of the more 'obscure' Daoist texts. I have a fascination with the Quanzhen school, mainly because I'm equally interested in Confucian and Buddhist philosophy also, and love the x-over there.


Looking forward to reading your posts.
