Season’s Greetings to You!
We thank all our students, friends, and colleagues throughout the Si Yuan world. Without your amazing support we could not have made it through our freshman year.
In 2016, we taught 23 courses, which included Core Foundation Tracks (CFT), Advanced Tracks (AT), and Ba Zi Levels 2 and 3. That is 92 focused days together with you in class!
We visited you on 5 continents, 17 cities, and 14 countries: Australia, Brazil, China, England, France, Germany, Macao, New Zealand, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, United States, and Taiwan.
During August, we even squeezed in an acupuncture medical mission to Cambodia where we treated almost 900 patients.
To fulfill the final promise to our Master to continue his lineage teachings, our lives took a drastic turn.
We embarked on 82 flights (not counting multiple connections) and sadly missed a few!
We sat 889 hours (not including layovers, delays, and cancellations) or 37 days on a plane.
We were away from home (and our own beds) for 391 days.
It was surely exhausting at times, but fortunately we were not alone.
We are grateful to have the support of the following people we want to acknowledge. These individuals were tireless in aiding our work. Deepest gratitude goes to Michele, Pedro, Marco, Cassiano, Jairo, Thomas, Siobhain, Sandra, Lindsay, Vanessa, Nora, Szenan, Dr. Zhou, Dr. Fan, Milaboreus. You made it possible to successfully offer our courses internationally.
Speaking of, 1,398 of you made the effort and investment to train with us. If each of you went back to treat 15 patients per week then in one year we would relieve the suffering of over 1,000,000 people.
This is why we teach. Our Shifu wanted us to magnify the power of Balance Method Acupuncture around the globe. We dedicate all of the sacrifices and achievements to him.
Looking forward to seeing you in 2017!
With Deepest Gratitude,
The Si Yuan Team
