Professor Wong Lun OAM, (now retired at the age of 88), was the founder and President of the Academy of Traditional Chinese Medicine, TCM, (Australia). The Academy consisted of three divisions.

  • The Academy clinic offered TCM medical treatments to the general public. The Academy clinic was amongst the largest alternative medical treatment centres in the southern hemisphere, and it held a widely renowned international reputation.
  • The school of TCM; offering a Diploma and Advanced Diploma in the five methods of TCM; acupuncture, herbal medicine, TCM medical massage, diet and exercise therapy, and, student clinic.
  • The school of the physical arts; teaching Tai Ji Quan, including weapons, Wu Gong, five styles of Chinese martial arts, Judo and Tang Shou.

In the years since 1974, when Professor Wong Lun first arrived in Australia, he began a new Nature Dao class only four times. It was only in the final class that he continued to lecture extensively on the subject of Nature Dao. Previously, in keeping with traditional practice, he would lecture, demonstrate, and then leave the class to continue practice under the guidance of a senior student. He would return some months later, check the progress, and either teach something more or leave again for another period of time. And this is the process that continued for years and years.

People would not be allowed to begin this course unless they had completed a minimum three-year term of Tai Ji Quan, and is particularly for those students who had passed beyond the initial stages of their medical training (for whom this knowledge is specifically aimed). Even then, people would still need to be invited to join. The reason why is because this knowledge represents the specialist teachings of TCM, which should not be undertaken without a firm foundation in basic precepts/maturity regarding life and health.

For the final Dao course, Professor Wong presented 36 extensive lectures over a 4-year period. He explained to the class that he wanted to pass this knowledge on to the next generation. He declared to the members of that class - that they were the next generation. He charged his senior students to start a Dao Society and henceforth, to present this knowledge to the modern world. These lectures were recorded, rendered, and read back to him for corrections and his additions

Thus are we privileged to begin this process by presenting excerpts of his first three lectures to you, the reader, in the trust that what is read here will not be taken and used out of the context within which they are intended. Read them with the pleasure of witnessing concepts and ideas that have passed down since the beginning of intelligent reasoning. Much has been left out; there is so much more that we seek to share with you, so keep an eye on this site. Enjoy a glimpse of the bounty uncovered by the oldest civilisation on earth.
