Hello, I'm Qibei-

Your tour guide for a natural yet empowering  journey 

that will help you unearth and embody 

your most whole and magnificent self.




I was born in China, a country with the largest population in the world yet I grew up feeling invisible and cut-off. I numbed myself through years of cultural oppression and constant abrupt separations from my family. Every cell of my body remembers the devastation of an isolated, diminished life and the agony of being “the best robot”, trained only to obey and serve. Outside, I appeared to be living. Inside, I was dying like a withering flower bud that never got a chance to blossom.

Fortunately, my hunger for life evoked these two questions in me: What keeps us small and silenced? And what blooms life and makes it meaningful?  In the asking and listening to these two questionsI walked through many unfamiliar terrains of self discovery. Inevitably, I had many times the sense of falling on my face, crashing into walls, and getting burned into ashes. Damn! No one told me it would be that hard. However, I knew I'd never go back to un-live my life again. Teachers in many different forms have come to show me the way, share their gifts, and guide my progression. I'm constantly reminded to stay open to the mystery and the unknown as they bring the greatest teachings

The yearning for home is the calling of home. The scream of wanting to be alive is the voice of life. When I ignored the calling, I was trapped in suffering. When I began to listen and let the calling be the guide, I woke up to the life inside of me.
