Chris is an avid reader, who has a deep love for the environment, for life and for understanding the place of man in the world. In his search for learning and meaning, Chris has always asked questions about life and the universe. It was the driving passion to understand life, the meaning of the universe and the nature of the world around him that has led Chris to become a geologist and a poet. As the years have gone by, the lessons of the martial arts have also fed into that search for understanding. It is from the confluence of these his passions that Chris has journeyed into both coaching and Traditional Chinese Medicine.
"Two paths diverged in a wood and I...I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference."
"To see a world in a grain of sand, And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand, And eternity in an hour"
"Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence."
“All paths are the same: they lead nowhere. ... Does this path have a heart? If it does, the path is good; if it doesn't, it is of no use. Both paths lead nowhere; but one has a heart, the other doesn't. One makes for a joyful journey; as long as you follow it, you are one with it. The other will make you curse your life. One makes you strong; the other weakens you.”
"Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and its purpose in the service of your people."
“Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power.”
