A friend on the path ...
I am Chris Kang (江登峰), Ph.D. With over three decades of training in nondual wisdom teachings of Asia and eight years of Christian spiritual 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 now engaged in geopolitical analysis.
Since 1985, I've been taught by eminent teachers of meditation and nondual wisdom: in the lineages of early Buddhist samatha (serenity) and vipassana (insight); Chinese Chan (禪); Tibetan Buddhist madhyamika (middle way), anuttara yoga tantra (highest union tantra), mahamudra (great seal), and dzogchen (great perfection); and the profound Indian lineage of ananda marga tantra (path of bliss) and sahaja-yoga (union of spontaneity). My heart teacher is the late Acariya Godwin Samararatne (1932-2000) of Nilambe Meditation Centre, Sri Lanka. My teachers have named me Upali (Pali); Karunashankar (Sanskrit); Lozang Tanpa (Tibetan); Tâm Cần Trí (Vietnamese); and 进慧月 (Chinese).
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, nudging it away from self-destruction towards a non-coercive culture of peace enlightened by Asian and Biblical paradigms of wisdom and compassion, emancipation and multipolarity.
I'm excited to connect with you. Do get in touch. Much blessings!
