Taiji Tao Retreats with Sarah/Fong Yi

Sarah Tulivu, or Fong Yi, has trained in meditation for the past 11 years. About six of those years were passed living full-time as a monk in a Tao Temple and monastery, training in the Taichi Tao System, also called Temple Style Taichi, from Master Waysun Liao.

She is now sharing the practice with others, mainly in retreats, under the direction of Master Liao, while still in training herself.

Allowing a thing to emerge, to grow,
to nourish it, yet not possess it,
to work at it, yet not control it,
lead it, yet not dominate it,
This is so called the Great Te.
