About myself
I was born in Mudgee, NSW and lived on 3 different farms attending schools in Mudgee until I moved to Sydney to Study Dentistry at Sydney University following in the footsteps of my grandfather and great grandfather who were both dentists in Mudgee.

After graduating in 1988 I worked at Westmead Hospital for 2 years and since then have worked in private practice. I married in 1989 and have 2 children Mia and Nicholas.

In 2011 I was diagnosed with a congenital Atrial Septal defect, hole in the heart and Coeliac Disease which was a huge shock as I was rarely sick and quite resilient.
In October 2014 I had open heart surgery, attended rehabilitation, returning to my pilates class and work in January 2017.

How I came to Yuan-Chi Tai Chi Chuan
Although I had many hobbies and interests including botanical art class, photography, reading, gardening, movie going, creating I needed a way to deal with stress and  self esteem. I think growing up in the country you become quite self reliant and I sometimes felt a lack of confidence in social situations. My values were not always those of some family and friends who seemed to have ever bigger houses and more expensive lifestyles but lacked compassion.

On Wednesday 6th April 2016 I arrived home from work and received 3 messages.
My friend Vivienne had died that day of cancer, another of the school mums was diagnosed with Pancreatic cancer and my cousin with throat cancer. As it turned out 2016 was to be the most challenging year of my life.

So now Tai Chi
Robert De Niro, The Intern, Google, Constant Balance, Tuesday 2nd August 2016 7am first Tai Chi class.
I was humbled by the acceptance and patience of all in the Tai Chi class which became quite a haven.  I worried that my brain was not up to the task, I struggled to be on time but just kept trying, turning up. The magical park full of trees, birds, dogs, life served as a comforting backdrop.
I hope that I can grow to experience an inner resilience, peace and wisdom.

In gratitude, no apologies!

Sahaj in Yuan-Chi?

You don’t have to overpower the Divine Power. You don’t have to order, you don’t have to ask; just if you meditate, you are one with this All-pervading Power which is another great blessings to us.”

It is possible to become a master of Yuan-Chi by following MOTHER just through the following; Yuan-Chi Tai Chi Chuan DVDs S.1-S.3, Zheng Man-Ching 44 book and 55style Yang sword DVD.

Q: One thing is for sure though, will strive to have The Chaitanya Flowing through trying to mimic your moves. How does that feel?
A: Since the process is under the control of Mother Param.Chaitanya, the true advice is as MOTHER has given to us for self-realization & meditation.
In supplement here’s advice given to beginners in our school; “please follow the leader: copy what you see. Mimic the leader, become what you follow.”

What is it like to practise Yuan-Chi beyond Nirvichara Samadhi?

Tim’s Timbre

This is such a wonderful community and practice – I feel very lucky to have found a place in it.

I am an instrumental musician, and I came to Tai Chi one year ago. It was always something that I’d wanted to explore but never made a point of beginning. Then, having recently moved to Glebe, I took a leaflet from the Constant Balance sandwich board and dived in, I’m so grateful that I was walking through the park during class time, and that the door to this experience opened at just the right time. This is of course a wonderful physical tool for general well being and energy levels, and I felt this straight away. More profound though is the effect it has had on my music making – particularly in balance as I move between instruments, physical awareness, tension release and ambidexterity, but also in a less easily explained flow, ease and inner quietude. I have had numerous experiences of great joy and peace during the dance of the 108, and these spill into my daily life with ever more insistence. Sifu’s embodiment of the way is likewise a joy to observe and his teachings are by turns thought-provoking and thought-silencing, insightful, startling and generous. I look forward to sharing more experiences as and when they find me…

I came to Constant Balance by mistake.
I had been in email correspondence with another Tai Chi teacher and was to meet him in Glebe Park.
Instead I saw Sifu coming, whom I assumed to be that person, caught up with him and have been
in his class ever since. I joined with the purpose of gaining physical balance and energy.
I have found myself involved in something more profound and mysterious.
I am making my way through the form, at my own pace, albeit very slowly,
thanks to the extraordinary patience of Sifu and the Tai Chi community.
In all respects, it is a most unusual experience.

Mick’s Mission

Hi everybody,my match report for Glebe class.

I enjoyed the dance very much got lost in the flow and enjoyed the company,I noticed I go deeper into the flow in the presence of others more experienced than myself,possibly because some thing that needs fixing in myself.

I noticed after 4 hours in the presence of sifu or possibly the collective energy my aches and pains of which I have a few,were just about gone,very impressive!

Enjoyed the talk found it enlightening not sure if it influenced my decision but did understand point being made.

Hope you are all well regards, Mick.

In the summer of 2013 I had a severe injury in my lower back so I couldn’t stand straight or walk properly.

Then I met Lum Sifu and I started to learn the Way of Tao. I received a personal intensive course – learning Section One of Yuan-Chi  Tai Chi Chuan. Sifu also treated me and everything worked out perfectly.

My injury was such that I experienced severe pain in my lower back on the left side and the pain was going down the leg all the way to the foot and my toes became numb. Through two weeks’ practice the pain almost disappeared from my leg and the numbness started to move and change. Only some of my toes remained numb. Sifu was making jokes that I loved pain because I really had to move and do the exercises although I was in agony.

Altogether I followed Sifu for two weeks in Cabella, Italy plus another week in Moravka, Czech Republic during July-August 2013.

The healing process was really effective and fast. Sometimes I just lay on the ground as he worked on my leg by putting his foot on different points on my leg. This helped me really to rest and regenerate. At other times we were moving together in a way that he helped me to go into auto motion which resulted in my body ending up in different positions each time.

Now I know how to use this method on my own and it’s still healing me every time. It’s a technique in which the body aligns itself to a position specifically needed in that moment. I noticed also that the healing process continually went back in time to the roots of the injury and removed them one by one, from the present moment back to the beginning of the problem. After two months of daily practice my leg was back to normal but I still had some feeling in my lower back, not pain but just a novel feeling.

Sifu told me that such injuries needed time, maybe two – three years to heal using only Yuan-Chi Tai-Chi. So I went for a check-up and the doctor sent me to physiotherapy where I learned how the spine is organised and how it functions and they gave me only one exercise to do.

After two years’ of diligent practice I no longer feel any pain or strange sensations in my back.

I’m still practising Yuan-Chi  Tai Chi Chuan today and I’m happy to have met Sifu as well as some other of his European students in the summer of 2013.

Best regards,

“Ananya Bhakti, when there is not the other…and when you are one with God, then what does He give you?

He won’t give you cheap things, which will vanish in no time, but of some eternal nature. So He gives you peace, peace of the heart. He gives you balance. Also He gives you a tranquil temperament, joy of life.

All these things are there within us if we have the Bhakti, which is after being united, after the Yoga, with the Yogeshwara. This is what one has to understand.”

Il Yuan-Chi Tai Chi Chuan è illusione, spesso mentre si vede Sifu praticare ci si rende conto di questo.
Ma quando si pratica Jade Maiden si entra nell’illusione stessa, come in un velo, come dentro una nuvola si attraversa la Maya, si cammina nella Maya e se Madre vuole si va oltre la Maya.
grazie Sifu.

The Yuan-Chi Tai Chi Chuan is an illusion, often while you see Sifu practise you realize this.
But when you practise Jade Maiden you enter the illusion itself, like a veil, as in a cloud crossing the Maya, you walk in and Maya …. if Mother wants you cross over the Maya.
Thanks for everything Sifu
