Alex’s talent lies in understanding and translating ancient health wisdom, then delivering it in a structured way. Alex believes that this process, a deeper connection with the content, and ongoing support is a key to initiate authentic personal change.
No one owns your health and spirituality and every life is personal. However, for those of us who have abandoned traditional religion must also recognize the benefits of organization, community, ritual and the fact that to achieve our true potential… we all need help. I feel Chinese Medicine and Daoism provide a great foundation, the calendar, the philosophy, the rituals, the wellness, the medicine – at it’s core, simply accepting that we are part of nature! Straight bamboo’s mission is to examine the aspects of spiritual life which contain concepts that can fruitfully be applied to problems of secular society, to provide the structure and organization of those principles and a process that guides modern educated people to achieve greater health, happiness, productivity and fulfilment! – Alex Tan
Alex guides and skillfully facilitates the first necessary steps from conceptual understanding into real action. Alex believes effective wellness programs are about creating greater levels of quality education and awareness, in combination with adequate levels of support and follow-up.
