1998 - Report at Shenyang

September 9th, 1998. I rode the train to Xian. When I met up with a friend, he told me, "In the afternoon, Master Wang is going to give a talk in the discussion forum held by the Liaoning Province I Ching Study Committee."

When I got this news, I immediately called my friends at Dalian and Shenyang. After they confirmed the news, I bought a plane ticket and flew to Shenyang with my friend. I was happy to see Master Wang again. He was originally planning to go home the same day but since we came over, he stayed for 3 more days. I reported to him on my Channel SHO study group and he gave me some valuable advices.

I obtained a recording of Master Wang's talk in the forum, it was clear that Master Wang has a deep understanding of I Ching, from theory to practice. The only thing I regretted was that I didn't have the chance to learn it from him systematically.

As I am reaching higher and higher level in my own practice, the number of problems I face also increase. On one hand, I tried to find the answer from the classics, on the other hand, I also got help from Master Wang. I was very lucky to have such a great teacher, whenever I am stuck, he would always answer my questions in detail. Even though my kung fu was still limited but under the guidance of such a great teacher, I was able to progress smoothly.

Sincere thanks to you and of course to Shen Laoshi for sharing.

I wonder if you have access to Shen Laoshi's book, or if you know where I could obtain a copy?

Thank you,

Hello Ken,

Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Edward Richards and I live in Chicago, IL USA. Beginning June 24, 2008 I attended a 10-day retreat by Master Wang Liping in China. There were 8 of us in the group. I am hoping to communicate with you to discuss these experiences. Is this possible? My email is or

Looking forward to your reply. Thank You. Edward Richards
