Grand Master Zhao Yuanfu visited the IDS for the first time.
Grand Master Zhao Yuanfu of the White Cloud Hall, Beijing, visited Leeds to meet with IDS members and members of the public at a series of events over 10 days.
He gave lectures on three evenings and explained some aspects of his life as a Daoist in China, about the basic ideas behind Daoism, and why it is such a good way to live. He also attended an IDS workshop and exchanged knowledge with people studying Daoism from the UK.
He emphasised living naturally, in harmony with nature, staying calm, being diligent and listening (rather than talking).
He gave short demonstrations on each of these occasions.
