'Walking in May' started as a personal blog with a travel post on 13th December 2010, as means to voice a simple opinion, and gradually grew into avenues of Vintage style, Qipao (Cheongsam or Chinese dress), beauty, lifestyle and now spirituality. It reflects the changes in my path from being a blogger and an Executive Assistant in a London city IT firm, to a freelancing Zen Yoga Teacher then subsequent Usui and Rainbow Reiki Practitioner as well as Usui/Holy Fire Master Teacher. 

In becoming a Yoga teacher I discovered a gap that I did not know how to bridge in my blog as well as actual life. My lifestyle, focus and schedule had completely changed. Writing about dressing up in Vintage style and the Qipao to attend parties no longer felt most meaningful. Life was no longer about what I was wearing, how to style a Qipao fashionably or what parties I was attending....but rather I felt  what I could say to help more people became more important. Google rankings only saw me relevant to the Qipao (Cheongsam) as a niche blog but there could be so much more. All my research, learning and sharing about the history, artistry and significance of the Qipao seemed a little lost in the haystack no matter how many long blog posts I was writing. 

So I took a break from writing in 2016 and started focusing on the deep inner work I had to do for myself. Fast-forward into 2019 when I thought I was finally ready to write again, life took an unexpected turn in my father passing away which halted my writing once again. Today I flow into writing whenever there is a call from my heart.... and transformed 'Walking In May' into 'Walking Divinely In May'.

I still love the Qipao (Cheongsam) very much of course, as I continue to collect the Qipao as well as wear them to special occasions, and would sporadically answer a few emails from those about the Qipao. But there is so much more in my life today than just that....as I have discovered that 'Life is a continued journey of love, healing, beauty and truth to get back to the wholeness of mind, body and soul'.

So let me share with you not only my knowledge of the Qipao (Cheongsam), but what I have learnt from my healing work as a Zen Yoga Teacher, Vibroacoustic Massage with Tibetan Singing Bowl Therapist and Reiki Practitioner as well as Reiki Master Teacher.....the many mystical reflections and ordinary happenings throughout the dance of life from my perspective as a practising Vajrayana Buddhist of over 21 years, learner of Chinese Classical Dance and heavenly Dun Huang Dance, cat lover and more... 

May you continue to walk a path of auspiciousness and light no matter what you seek,
May you always be free of suffering throughout the dance of life. 
Om mani padme hum!

With Loving Kindness,
