5 Arts of Chinese Metaphysics (五术) guided the Chinese people throughout the ages..
The 5 Arts of Chinese Metaphysics (五术) guided the Chinese people throughout the ages. The content of each of the five arts are complex and very difficult to master. As such, practitioners focus in one or two of the five arts (五术) and many only on one of two of the disciplines within the arts.

5 Arts of Chinese Metaphysics (五术) are the biggest gifts from our Chinese Ancestors to all human beings on earth, yet the Westernized Chinese and most English Educated Chinese are looking down upon Ancient Chinese Wisdom (thoughts and teachings of their own ancestors) as superstition.

Many Western Folks are now having keen interest to learn and understand the Chinese Metaphysics (中华玄学) but realized that most of all the books of Chinese Metaphysics (中华玄学) and courses are written and conducted in Chinese Language and Classical Chinese, which without a good foundation of Chinese Language , they are unable to even learn the Basics.
