Wujifa in my life

Wujifa is a big part of my life. I've been practicing for 6 years, ever since I turned 18, and the joy and growth it has brought me has been huge. When I first began practicing Wujifa, I was pretty depressed and shy as well, and although I still struggle with these factors in my life, I feel that they are no longer in charge, but just something to be noticed as I follow my intention. This is a big part of what Wujifa has been for me, a way to become more fully myself, and find my ability to surpass the obstacles I find both internally and externally, to develop my internal strength.

Internal strength is physical and mental, you might even say it's a spiritual thing, and Wujifa is a system of developing all of these. I'm reminded of the greek phrase "Know thyself", and how Wujifa has been a way for me to know myself more fully, not in a static way, but a knowledge that is a growing and a becoming as well as an essence and a being. There is no end to feeling, understanding, and being aware.


  1. Looking forward to your blogging here... inspiring!

  2. I remember first meeting Dan as that shy 18 year old. What a fine young man he's grown to be.

  3. Hey Dan,

    I'm thankful for having wujifa be a part of my life too

    I especially liked your reference to know thyself and it is really true that wujifa both encompasses and helps one embody this notion.
