“There is only one valid reason to pursue knowledge and it is to share it with others”

I have been studying Taiji since 1996. I started with the 24-form (Beijing) simply to cool down the muscles from the hard training of Shaolin Kung Fu. Then I met the Living Heart called Sylvia Tambells, moving to the teachings of Master Kay Tung Yang family. In 1999, Sylvia met Patrick A. Kelly and gradually introduced me to him. I take this opportunity to thank her for believing that part of the meaning of her life was to make sense to mine. And thank to Patrick for everything he did and does for me: for what I know, but especially for all that is beyond my awareness and understanding.

“As long as you can seek, throughout the life there is not a companion who has shared more with you than the ego itself. It has always been there, in the joys and sorrows, tireless cause of both. It is just to gain the awareness that where the journey continues it cannot come and to develop a strong intention to proceed further and not to turn back”
