Master Dong Yang started Taoist training at a very early age in Beijing, China. Master Dong Yang’s teacher is from Zhong Nan and lives in the mountains there. His name is Wang Ming Li and was originally from Shanxi.
He travelled to Beijing and was staying at the White Cloud Temple when Master Dong Yang started learning from him. Wang did not teach or speak to other people. Wang did not belong to any sect but was highly revered; he was also quite old at the time but looked very young and healthy. There are other teachers who have contributed to Master Dong Yang’s Taoist knowledge who have asked not to be named.
Master Dong Yang learnt genuine Taoist knowledge that is non-superstitious and non-religious. This Taoist knowledge and practice encompassed an approach to develop an accurate understanding of nature to cultivate and grow internal elixir (Nei Dan).
Master Dong Yang branches out from Taoist lineages that stem from private Taoist hermits. Master Dong Yang promotes Tao as a practical, effective and functional way to deal with the world with ease without having to retreat from it. There are no rituals and rites, chants or prayers; there is simply the cultivation of positive energy through understanding of the Tao and daily Taoist training for the development of internal elixir which promotes a positive and successful life.
Master Dong Yang now bridges the gap between this ancient knowledge and the modern world in the tradition of Lao Tzu(Lao Zi) and Lu Dong Bin, both famous for sharing Taoist knowledge with the public.
