Our son was the first family member to seek Master Sang Kim’s assistance, and the results have been truly amazing. At that time, he was suffering from a number of ill-defined ailments and his life lacked direction and purpose. Working intensely with Master Kim over the years, he has turned a corner and is poised to get married and embark on a new professional path.
Our daughter also worked extensively with Master Kim and, like her brother, she was able to become healthier, more focused, grow her work practice, and take a leap into a new professional field that appears to be her true calling.
While my wife and I do not live in Michigan, we have also worked with Master Kim during our visits to Ann Arbor, as well as through telephone consults and e-mail exchanges. He has skilfully helped us enhance our relationship as a couple and sharpen our vision and determination to seek personal growth.
In dealing with his clients, Master Kim brings to bear his grounding in multiple spiritual traditions, as well as his expertise in personal and organizational growth. Equally important, he has an unassuming demeanor and colors his exchanges with warmth, wisdom, compassion and wit.
For all these reasons, my family and I can enthusiastically recommend Master Sang Kim as a teacher, counselor and coach.
Working with you made me realize I have a lot of anxiety and fears! Luckily for me, you have infinite compassion, love and patience that helps me to face and overcome them. Only to find later again and again that I have more fears to overcome! And more wonderful chances to be with you and have so much fun working through this painstaking life growth with you that I have come to enjoy over these many years.
You help me to realize my true self, to love myself unconditionally as God would and to protect that which has been given to us so we can live our life to the fullest.
Thank you, I feel very blessed and grateful that I get to study with you and be part of this wonderful life journey that our Tai-Chi community is on.
With much love and affection,
In my first week of practice with Master Kim. I had never experienced teaching like this: non-verbal and without separation of beginning and continuing students. It was a field day for my inner critic! But it didn’t take long to notice that the critic was not receiving any food here… the classes, lessons, and healing sessions are infused with compassion and respect; with guidance to awaken your own inner guide; with opening of a path to your own great truth. Whether it is through the movements of the form or the stillness of meditation; through community or individual sessions; the principles and values are consistent and clearly communicated by this gifted teacher and healer.
With great appreciation,
When I first met the group, several years ago now, I was looking for instruction in the traditions of Tai-Chi as an internal art. What I found in SUN SHEN was not only knowledge and the experience, but the willingness of the teachers, led by Master Sang Kim, to readily and enthusiastically share their knowledge. Every student is greeted compassionately and accepted at her or his level so they may grow in their own way. It is acknowledged that everyone, including the teachers, are in process of growth and self-realization. Thus, rank is not as important here as is real learning through experience. This makes class time precious and ultimately very special. As the expression goes: one learns to not only talk the talk, but, also, walk the walk. And as students of Tai-Chi know well, this is what it is all about.
