2009 I started with the transcription of „The Secret of the Golden Flower“ the meditation manual from ancient China, which was translated from the original Chinese to English and commented by the renowned American sinologist Thomas Cleary in 1991. Thomas Cleary did an outstanding job with his profound comments. My English transcription puts now the comments of Thomas Cleary from the second part of his book directly as a footnote under each respective section of the original text, because the text passages can be only understood in their immediate historical and conceptual context. Simultaneously I began with a German translation.

2013 I completed the Transcription »Golden Flower Meditation« in German and English and as a supplement I also translated into German the important treatise about the bodily alchemy „Cultivating the Energy of Life“ from Eva Wong, which is also mentioned as a reference in the „Secret of the Golden Flower“. Since then an authentic and understandable basis for this meditation technique is given.

2014 I also translated another new and easy-to-understand English translation into German: «Wang Chongyang – The Secret of the Golden Flower: a Manual for Taoist Inner Alchemy» which has been published 2013 by Ancient Publications from Andras Nagy.

2015 I also completed a French Transcription based on the sold-out French edition «Le Secret de la Fleur d’Or» by Thomas Cleary’s „The Secret of the Golden Flower“.

The French Translation of „Cultivating the Energy of Life“ is still available under the title «Cultiver L’Energie de La Vie» in the publishing house „Les Éditions de l’Éveil“.

In 2015 I completed the transcription of the Italian edition. The transcription of the Spanish edition is still in preparation. There are then 5 complete Transcriptions (with footnotes after each section) in English, German, French, Italian.

2016 I also translated my Meditation Instruction in French and Italian. The Spanish Translation (in the version of 12.04.2018) was completed in March 2018 by Margarita Meyer-Guerrero.

The masterful translation of Thomas Cleary „The Secret of the Golden Flower“ (Das Geheimnis der Goldenen Blüte) is also available in Spanish: „El Secreto de la Flor de Oro“ published by „Arca de Sabiduria – EDAF – Madrid, 1995, 8 ed. 2012“, and in Italian: „Il Segreto del Fiore d ‚Oro“ published by „Ubaldini Editore – Roma, 1993“.

2018 I started to translate „Cultivating Stillness“ by Eva Wong from English into German. This work is a key text of the Taoist canon and a direct deepening of the Secret of the Golden Flower.

Preoccupied with this text for more than 30 years I still see no end to the further explanation and application possibilities. The heavenly Masters accompany and motivate me on this path with increasing support. I regularly receive new insights into the functions and capabilities of a mind „liberated from the constraints of thinking“.

Since my translation of the extremely important treatise on longevity and immortality, „Cultivating of the Energy of Life“ who is related directly to the „Golden Flower“, more and more it opens up to me all Indian, Buddhist and Taoist texts in unexpected clarity and freshness.

For meditation teachers, these text versions are of inestimable value because so far no working basis was presented in a practical and readable form. As soon as possible I will also create and publish an even more »practical and systematic handbook« out of my personal teaching practice, using this authentic basis as a summary, which will help to ensure that meditation will be understood in the West.

A large part of the knowledge that you can find on this website, is based on this scripture. Anyone interested in this work is welcome to contact me. If you are interested in the private use of individual translations or transcripts, you can request them as a »PDF« against your complete address and contact details.
