The Work transformed my life to a state of peace, joy, and clarity that I could not have imagined before. This gift belongs to everyone and I am here to serve.

My relationship with my husband had been a constant struggle since early on, and that permeated through all aspects of my life. Later came the challenges of parenting my teenage son who grew up experiencing the daily discord of his parents. Being a high achiever both at academics and in my business career, I could not comprehend what went wrong. Desperate and helpless, I embarked on a spiritual journey looking for answers and solutions. I learned all I could from the prevailing new age masters, including Louise Hay, Seth Materials, etc. I also turned to eastern wisdom and began meditation and studying Buddhism. However, I remained confused, and could not find my way out of my own misery.

I first read Loving What Is in 2008. I loved it but could not understand why people changed their mind so quickly when Katie facilitated them as I read the scripts. Not until I saw Katie’s video clips in the summer of 2015, a lightbulb went on inside me. I knew this is it! From that day on, I practically “lived” with Katie everyday through her books, videos, or audios. I checked in the 9-day School, Katie’s events, and eventually engaged myself fully in the certification program.

My life began to shift as I immersed myself in doing The Work, taking another look at situations that used to trouble me. Each time, it feels like a cleansing of love. My experience with that situation changed automatically by itself. I completely understand why the world is a reflection of my mind, and that forgiveness is realizing what I thought happened did not. As my perception changes, my family life has become so much more peaceful, and it becomes so clear to me that when I mind only my own business, and take care of my own thoughts, people around me finally have chances and freedom to be who they really are.

My inexpressible gratitude led me to serve in whatever capacity I could to share this precious gift—The Work—with the world. It is such a privilege to serve on the Helpline listening to inner voices from all over the world. I have been promoting The Work in Chinese through Weibo, Ximalaya, and leading a WeChat group dedicated to doing The Work. Anyone interested is welcome to join the group, and connect with those already doing the inquiry in Chinese. I offer monthly free online events to introduce The Work as well as fee-based online workshops.

I grew up in Taiwan, and moved to the U.S. to pursue an MBA degree at UCLA. I then worked my way up in a Fortune 500 company for 15 years. I am now a Financial and Education consultant at leisure, and serve on the board of a non-profit organization dedicated to support talented youth. I understand challenges in the corporate world, intimate relationships, parenting, and family issues.

I am open to any opportunity the universe brings me. I love and look forward to connect with everyone that comes to my life. Drop me a note in whichever way you prefer. We will start there.

功課徹底轉化了我的生命,我經常可以處在從前所無法想像的平靜、喜悅和清𥇦之中。這個禮物屬於每個人,而我願在這裏為此而服務。

我和丈夫的關係從一開始就是我最大的挑戰,而這個痛苦滲透到我生活的每一個層面。後來養育進入青春期的兒子遇到了更艱難的挑戰。他在父母不合的經歷中長大,加上面對自己升學、課業、成長的壓力,讓我這個一向在學業和職場上都能得心應手的母親完全招架不住,束手無策。

我無法理解我的生命究竟出了什麼問題?我究竟做錯了什麼?我開始踏上靈修的旅程,到處找答案。我學習各種新時代大師的教導,包括露薏絲黑,甚至賽斯資料。我也學習靜心冥想,學禪,研讀佛經等等。但是我依然困惑,無法從自己的痛苦中走出來。

我是十年前第一次讀到凱蒂的暢銷書《一念之轉》,我看了很歡喜,但是不理解為什麼書中的人物這麼快心念就轉變了。一直到2015年的夏天,我看了凱蒂協導人們的視頻,我才恍然大悟。我知道那正是我需要的,從那天起,我幾乎每天和凱蒂生活在一起,我看她的書、聽她的音頻和看她的視頻。最後,我去上了九天功課學校,緊接著讓自己完全投入在協導師的認證計劃之中。

當我沈浸在功課的練習裡,重新看待曾經困擾我的經驗,我的生命開始轉變。每做一次,就像一個愛的洗禮,不自覺地改變了我原來的經驗。我因此而充分明白為什麼世界是我心智的投影,而且寬恕是覺悟我認為發生的,其實從來沒有發生過。 當我對經驗的認知起了變化,我的家庭生活也越來越平安。一切變得清楚明白,我看到當我管好自己的事,透過功課處理好我自己的念頭,我身旁的人終於有機會和自由做他們真正的自己。

無法言喻的感恩讓我願意盡我所能,向大眾介紹這份珍貴的禮物 — 功課。能夠在功課服務專線上,傾聽來自世界各地的聲音是份莫大的榮幸。我透過微博、喜瑪拉雅,和帶領微信群在華人世界推廣功課。歡迎任何有興趣的朋友來加入我的微信群,和已經一羣以中文做功課的朋友連結。我每月舉辦線上的公益活動,同時也開辦收費的線上課程。

我在台灣長大,到美國加州洛杉磯大學取得企業管理碩士學位之後,在美國五百大公司工作了十五年。目前副業是財務和教育顧問,同時也是一個支持才藝青年非營利組織的董事。我深諳企業界的挑戰,也洞悉親密關係,教養子女和家庭生活面臨的議題。

我歡迎宇宙給我的任何機會,熱愛並期待去認識所有來到我生命的每一個人。你可以任何一種方式和我聯絡,我們就從那裡開始。
