Daniel Li Ox

Qi Gong Master

Daniel Li Ox is the founder of Wandering Dao. He was born in Canada in 1961. Long distance swimmer from an early age he had his first access to eastern esoterical practices at the age of 16 through Yoga. In his early 20′s he studied Soto Zen and Chinese Medicine and been ordained as a monk (bodhisattva) in his late 20′s. At this time he started his studies in Medical Qi Gong and in Daoist Inner Alchemy with Master Mantak Chia who was coming from Master Yi Eng’s lineage (White Cloud) from the Dragon’s Gate Sect of the Quanzhen (Complete Perfection) school of Daoism. Master Chia authorized him to teach.

dao-of-strengthLater he pursued his studies in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Qi Gong, Kung Fu and Daoist Studies with various masters; among them the Kung Fu Master Gao Yen-Tao and the Nei Gong Master Xuzhong, a monk from the Golden Elixir lineage.

His main goal always has been to make those self-healing and alchemical practices accessible to westerners. In the 90′s he founded Tao Quebec, a Qi Gong School in Canada, which changed name for Wandering Dao Qi Gong School when he left Canada to teach on the road.

After 25 years of practices and deepening his knowledge of the traditional system and of the teaching methods that suits better the western mind, he reorganized the system in a very practical way without compromising the traditional training.

Li Ox’s training system is closely anchored in the cultivation of the 8 Forces (qualities & skills), following the structure of the Bagua. Structuring the knowledge in this way, Li Ox is helping his students to understand the importance of cultivating their 3 Essences and Bodies (physical, emotional, and mental/spiritual) for their self-healing purposes and their highest spiritual achievements.

The training he offers does not aim to bring the students to the highest achievements but to prepare their body-mind and spirit adequately so they can face the arduous discipline that the highest alchemical practices require.

According to his system there are 3 stages of practices. The first being the “Evolutionary Stage”, the second the “Transitory Stage”, and finally the “Completion Stage”. The Wandering Dao Qi Gong School is offering the first two stages.

His school wants to train serious practitioners in the process of their self-healing and bring out highly qualified instructors.

Mei Juan Luo

Tai Ji Master

Mei Juan Luo has more than fifteen years of experience teaching Tai Ji to students from around the world. Daughter of a Kung Fu master, Mei loved the martial arts from a very young age. Her father being very traditional, refused to teach his skills to a girl. So Mei took up dancing classes until she was old enough to learn by herself. Initially Mei started to take lessons in Yang style Tai Ji from local teachers and practiced both the long and short forms. Having already studied Yuan (circle) Neng (energy) Gong with a Wudang Taoist Master, at the age of seventeen she also learned acupuncture from Doctor Lei Long Hung who introduced Mei to traditional medicine. Now practicing Tai Ji every day, Mei wanted to learn more styles and this led her in 1996 to Chen Village, the home of the Chen Family and the 19th Generation Master, Chen Zheng Lei who is recognized by the government as one of the ten great martial arts masters of China.

Already teaching students in the park and by the riverside in Yangshuo, in 2003 Mei applied to become a Tai Ji Master and took the written and practical exams which also required her to demonstrate her teaching skills with a group of beginners before the examination panel. Having been accredited as a 6th Level Master by the Chinese Wushu Association, and encouraged by her teachers she began to enter competitions, winning silver medals at the Chen Village Elite Tai Ji Tournament in 2004.

Mei has continued to win gold and silver medals for Tai Ji Quan and sword at regional and international competitions. Though she is proficient at both sword and bare hand styles, her specialty is a form of freestyle Chen Tai Ji Quan that allows her to select steps from the Lao Jia and the Xin Jia (long forms) and improvise her own sequences. Since 2003 Mei has been apprenticed to Chen Zheng Lei, and returns annually to Chen Village for three weeks to study with him.

In 2007 the Chinese Wushu Association invited Mei to be examined as an Advanced Level Wushu Coach and she was subsequently invited to participate in the Beijing Olympics Wushu Competition in 2008: Mei won two gold medals and a ticket to the Olympics, and won two further golds at the 2009 national Wushu Competition in Shanghai.

Also in 2009, Mei won a gold medal as best Tai Ji instructor as she led her student group to great success at the regional competition in Guilin, China, where several students brought home medals. Mei speaks Chinese and English.
