FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Monday, May 13, 2013
Wu Dang Taoist Priest Yun Xiang Tseng (“Master Chen”) is making his first visit to Asheville, NC June 14-16, 2013. Coming from the unbroken 700-year old Dragon Gate (Long Men) lineage of Wu Dang Mountain, China (made famous in Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon), Master Chen reveals the keys for achieving a balanced and happy life within the pages of his newly released book, “Master Within”, and workshops for Tai Chi, Qi Gong, Meditation, and Chinese Healing Arts.
As a childhood prodigy, healing many by the age of 6, Master Chen was sent to Wu Dang Mountain where he studied with 5 esteemed grandmasters and gained a well-known reputation for his ability to teach. His direct teacher, Grand Master Li, sent him to the West (United States) in 1990 to teach the ancient wisdom. This journey to the West started in NYC with Chen learning English from watching CNN and flipping hamburgers at McDonald’s. For over 20 years now, Master Chen has been communicating the little understood Taoist wisdom of the Eastern world to the people in the West, providing guidance for living life passionately.
The weekend starts Friday, June 14, with the Master Within: Passion for Life Lecture and Book Signing, 6:30 - 8:30 pm at New Hope Presbyterian Church, Asheville, NC. Saturday Workshops: Bone Stretching Qigong, 9:00 am to 12:30 pm; Long Men - Dragon Gate Qigong for Alchemy, 2:00 - 5:00 pm; Introduction to Wu Dang Taoist Meditation, 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm. Sunday workshop: Original Wu Dang Tai Chi 13 Form, 9am-5pm. Saturday and Sunday workshops will be held at Heaven’s Cloud Retreat, Asheville, NC.
Early Registration Savings are offered to the community through May 25.

To read Master Yun Xiang Tseng’s story written by one of his students:
“Master Chen has an innate ability of bringing out the highest qualities of each student. By being very supportive, nurturing, and humorous, as well as pushing when that is needed, he brings out the highest potential of each student. He meets you where you are and then helps you to optimize your own innate capacities.”
“I highly recommend Master Chen’s Tai Chi & Qigong classes to anyone (beginner to advanced student) who wants to dive deeply into the essence of these practices.
“Master Chen teaches in a multi-dimensional format- so whether you are interested in these arts for health & healing, for martial arts or for the deep alchemical aspects of transforming your body, qi and spirit, Master Chen can address it all…in a very deep and articulate manner.”
