A NOTE OF CLARIFICATION:
“I have been made aware that there has been practitioners/students who have made claims that they are my successors in the field of Chinese medicine. While I have taught thousands of students over the decades, I have not ever designated anyone as heir to my Chinese medical tradition. Needless to say, there have been a number of students and/or seminar participants who have published texts articulating some of my teachings — many of which are recognisable from the language used in the books (which anyone who has attended my classes can easy discern as my voice echoing through those pages). My only qualms about these texts have been that I didn’t emphasise adequately to some of these writers to spend more time reflecting, cultivating, and applying the teachings before the rush to publication.
One of the greatest pleasures of my life has been to share and disseminate teachings that I feel have been forsaken or less focused in contemporary Chinese medicine education — a mission that continues to extenuate from my heart and efforts. I have been fortunate to be surrounded by a close group of long-time students who continue to study from and with me in the ever-fascinating journey to discover and unravel the essence and mystery of healing within the Chinese medical perspective. None of these students and friends feel they are successors to my lineage, but rather participants in my mission.”
