“The Healing Roots of Wing Chun” in Hamburg, Germany

My first public Wing Chun class in Hamburg, Germany focusing on the healing roots of Wing Chun takes place Thursday evenings at Medosophos, Rutschbahn 11 a. The class will be about body mind synergies and the philosophical, spiritual and medical aspects of Chinese Buddhist and Taoist traditions at work in Wing Chun.

Sustainable management and leadership – body mind synergy coaching in Hamburg, Germany

Every endeavor in the field of sustainability starts with oneself. Since “a journey of a thousand miles starts with the first step,” the unfolding and fostering of a sustainable physical and mental foundation in oneself is an absolute prerequisite of a truly meaningful sustainability journey. This is why and how I work with Chinese movement traditions.

For more details about my body mind synergy coaching and Chinese martial arts / Qigong trainings — not only in Hamburg, Germany — take a look at my tao moves website: www.tao-moves.com

Technology and Sustainability

The discussion of this Guardian post by Jo Confino, “How technology has stopped evolution and is destroying the world” (http://www.guardian.co.uk/sustainable-business/technology-stopped-evolution-destroying-world) very much reminds me of the summary of the social criticism within the Tao Te Ching in my doctoral dissertation (pp. 417-432: http://ub-dok.uni-trier.de/diss/diss27/20010129/20010129.htm).
