Returning to the UK, I was fortunate enough to study Gao style Bagua with Aarvo Tucker – a senior Disciple of Luo De Xiu and one of Europe’s leading practitioners in Martial Arts. I was invited to lecture at the Internal College of Oriental medicine, and taught there for the following 10 years while also working as a researcher for the NHS investigating a cure for MS – an interesting mix of disciplines, but one that tied together my understandings of unity, wellness and disease.
It was around this time that I also entered into family life, bridging the world of monastic study with the practical application of my learnings in the western world.
I currently teach internationally, and have had a Shamanistic practice in Forest Row, West Sussex for more than 20 years where I combine the disciplines of Chinese medicine, osteopathy and body work. I’m looking forward to sharing the teachings I’ve inherited at Riverheart.
