Hi! You're here.

“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step,” the ancient Chinese Taoist sage, Lao Tzu, once said.

You have taken the first step!

I’m Margaret — a social scientist, counselor by training, lifestyle coach, and author of two books on Falun Gong, an ancient spiritual meditation practice.

I show individuals like you how to adopt ancient wisdom for modern living.

I teach and share anecdotes on embracing ancient wisdom into our daily life. 

Ancient wisdom is not a benefit. It is a philosophy—a way of life, the way my mother who passed on at 103 brought me up.


My mission is to:

  • Enthuse you to find out more the practice of the Falun Gong.
  • Coach, inspire you to embrace ancient wisdom & anecdotes
