A friend on the path ...
I am Chris Kang. With over forty-eight years of meditative experience, nearly four decades of training in nondual wisdom teachings of Asia, and nine years of Christian spiritual and theological formation, I'm an experienced former university professor in Australia and Singapore with a Ph.D. in Studies in Religion (2003) from The University of Queensland. With 15 years' experience as occupational therapist in Singapore and Australia, I'm fully certified in Neurosemantics (2003) and Meta-Coaching (2004), trained in international relations (2009), and am now teaching and mentoring others in meditative practice and spiritual formation.
Since 1985, I've been taught by eminent teachers of meditation and nondual wisdom: in the lineages of early Buddhist Pali tradition; Chinese Chan (禪); Tibetan Buddhist Sutra, Tantra, Mahamudra, and Dzogchen; and the profound Indian lineage of Ananda Marga. My heart teacher of meditation is the late Acariya Godwin Samararatne (1932-2000) of Nilambe Meditation Centre, Sri Lanka.
I've integrated my lifelong learnings into a direct, minimalist, immediate and relational process of nondual wisdom and practice. This is education for the whole person from the core outwards: activating the essence and emanations of human consciousness for a life of wholeness. In the white fire of pure awareness, all that you are not is purified. All that remains is who you really are: awakened and open to the uncreated grace that sets you free. For the good of all.
Since 2003, alongside my academic and meditation work, I’ve been working as an internationally-certified coaching professional who specializes in helping people cope with their issues. I coach and mentor my clients in a way that utilizes their heads, hearts, and spirits. By exposing dominant narratives, cutting off delusion, touching the beauty of grace beyond the grip of self-occupied effort, and re-aligning one's body, mind, relationships, and world in synchrony with this timeless awakening — we become quietly subversive presences in a dystopic world.
Our innermost spirits regenerated by grace through faith in the unity of the Spirit, we mirror the luminosity and holiness, life and love, and pristine awareness of Christ in all that we are and do. We contemplatively nudge the world away from self-destruction towards a non-coercive culture of peace, enlightened by Asian and Biblical paradigms of wisdom and compassion, emancipation and multipolarity. We become co-participants in the eschatological mending of creation (tikkun olam) by Christ into unprecedented newness and wholeness.
I'm excited to connect with you. Do get in touch. Much blessings!
