About Master Wu
Master Zhongxian Wu was born on China’s eastern shore in the city of Wenling in Zhejiang Province, where the sun’s rays first touch the Chinese mainland. Master Wu began practicing Qigong and Taiji at an early age. Inspired by the immediate strengthening effects of this practice, he committed himself to the life-long pursuit of the ancient arts of internal cultivation.
Since 1972, Master Wu has devoted himself to the study of classical Chinese arts – Qigong/Neigong, Taiji, internal martial arts, Chinese medicine, Chinese astrology, Chinese cosmology, Yijing science, Chinese calligraphy, ancient Chinese music – and had studied with some of the best teachers in these fields.
He founded Blue Willow World Healing Center and QinJian Akademin 琴劍研究院 with his wife Dr. Karin Taylor Wu to preserve the ancient healing arts and other classical Chinese wisdom traditions. Master Wu is a NCCAOM PDA (National Certification Commision for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine Professional Development Activity) Provider.

When we read the Yijing with insight, we can tell that the Yijing is essentially about the idea and the process of change as the basic dynamic of the universe. In ancient China, Wu, the enlightened beings, applied the Big Dipper as the main tool to learn about the rhythm and dynamic of change in the universe. And Wu have been using the knowledge of “Change” to guide people’s lives into a harmonious state.
