Our Aims & Objectives
To Alleviate Suffering
Our mission is to alleviate suffering through the practice of the Taoist training that Master Moy Lin Shin transmitted to us.
To Make the Taoist Arts Available to All
We are dedicated to bringing the Taoist arts to every community so that its many benefits are available to all who wish to experience them.
To Promote the Taoist Concept of Health through the Practice of the Taoist arts
Practiced diligently, the Taoist arts cultivate good health as understood by Taoism. Our efforts are directed at making these benefits better known and understood, in order to promote the physical, mental and spiritual well being in the community.
To Promote Cultural Exchange
Through the Taoist arts and other activities, we endeavor to make the richness of Chinese culture more accessible, and thereby promote greater understanding and respect among people.
To Help Others
The foundation of the Taoist arts is compassion. Our underlying charitable orientation is in keeping with the Taoist values of selflessness and service to others. Our inspiration is the example set by our founder, Master Moy Lin Shin, who dedicated his life to helping others without seeking personal gain. For this reason, all of our instructors are volunteers, and all of our branches
operate on a non-profit basis. We also perform other services within the community and assist other charities whenever possible.
