I am inspired to provide my learning journey because I am largely transparent with my background. So I thought to myself penning my journey down not only helps me recap how I have grown, this can also be forwarded to clients or friends who are curious with my background.
Some practitioners focus very strongly on their own self-taught/enlightened talent or initiating into lineages belonging to famous masters. I belong to neither other than certain spiritual realisation and my initial journey on Tarot.
The following are the trainings I have received and exposed. They can be structured courses, hands-on workshops, informal trainings from experienced practitioners or self-taught. Not all trainers provide certifications upon completion. I list them in chronology order and try my best to put the correct month/year as best as I can recall.
Looking back, not all of the trainings I have received are techniques that I am proficient comfortably or actively practice. And, also looking back, the orthodox buddhist trainings I have received was one of the reasons that delayed me taking up metaphysics subjects because it is considered as unwarranted teachings from a buddhist’s perspective. Of course, in the general consumer market, you will see practitioners avoiding this taboo.
As of now, I identify myself as an Occultist more than a Buddhist due to various reasons.
I have also decided to include my Chinese traditional martial arts journey in here since a Chinese occultist is meant to pick all of these 5 disciplines 山，醫，命，卜，相 Mysticism, Healing, Life Analysis, Divination, Form-reading; and martial arts falls under the Mysticism department.
I have received my trainings primarily in English language except for techniques that I have include the names in Chinese, in which I have received that training in Mandarin.
