enthusiastic & humble student of life

Director @ a Capital Markets, P.Eng, MBA

 Yoga/Meditation teacher

I grew up along the tall grey walls of the Forbidden City in Beijing, China. Engineer and MBA by training, started my first job in Aberdeen on the offshore platforms, now financing energy companies through Capital Markets in North America.

Like many of you, I spent most part of my life busy chasing goals: school, career, money, marriage, control, kids...just after I achieved all of these goals, I was depressed, felt deeply lost and empty. While I was busy chasing this 

glamorous life from outside, I lost my mom over cancer, my marriage fell apart, the worst yet, I lost myself in this world.

The past ten years of my life has been spent on soul searching, meditation, journaling, reflection...I finally saw the limited beliefs, the illusions I used to hold on to so dearly, my beautiful inner light, the authentic power reside only in my heart, the magnificent mind so desperately needing my guidance to fulfill this precious life! It was a painful journey but so worth it! 

Today I devote my light to all of you. My wish is to bring conscious, purposeful living and tools into education, corporate, health care systems. May we always be blessed to remember who we really are, the power within. I see the light in you, see it yourself, it is beautiful!
