Two Great Events on One day in One Place!


The 21st century heralds the era of the legendary Phoenix, a mythical bird which burns itself to ash in order to be rebirthed anew. To embolden our Phoenix Rising energy in these unpredictable, auspicious and transformative times, Yuan Miao offers sacred mantras to open our hearts and empty our minds. By delivering us into a state of receptivity and relaxed awareness, we realize our true origins of abundance, freedom, joy, wisdom and compassion. We recognize and celebrate our true interconnectedness, catalyzed by the vehicles of light and sound.

Through a spontaneous, heart-opening river flow of Sanskrit, Tibetan, Chinese mantras and primordial sounds, Yuan Miao offers us the opportunity to attune, harmonize and heal our subtle bodies and mind.

She will be accompanied by her diverse ensemble of extraordinary sound healing musicians. Reverberate with love, oneness and the auspicious energy of the universe. May you discover a reservoir of peace within and return to your true, Inner Nature.

The concert was a special healing concert from Master Yuan Miao. Her voice was so mystical, enchanting and extraordinary. It is said that she has a strong connection with Guanyin. After seeing her sing and speak, I know that she has a true and genuine connection with Guanyin and her energy.

Her voice and energy was so pure, Divine and powerful. I could feel so much love and  compassion radiating from her.  Her Divine Energies connected with my heart chakra and brought me to tears. I was in so much gratitude and love that evening. This was a good way to spend my New Year’s Eve and today was a Divine day indeed!

Watching and listening to Master Miao was like having a Goddess coming into our presence.

Unsung Goddess Interview with Yuan Miao

Yoga of Joy with Yuan Miao

Join me as I welcome my special guest Master Teacher Yuan Miao, for a lively discussion of Kundalini Shakti and how to awaken our latent, spiritual energy through Yoga of Joy. Hear the wisdom of Miao and what she has to share about cultivating Divine energy, resonating at a high vibrational frequency and fulfilling the true aspiration and purpose of Yoga! Yuan Miao was born in Main­land China into a family with a rich Chinese and Tibetan spir­i­tual heritage. Her Chinese grand­fa­ther was a Zen master. Her grand­mother, Yeshe Tsuomu, whose name means “Ocean of Wisdom”, was the daughter of a high Tibetan Rinpoche and herself an enlight­ened master deeply connected to the Divine Mother. She named her grand­daughter Yuan Miao –the Source of Infi­nite Water– after receiving a trans­mis­sion from the Divine Mother. She was Miao’s teacher, guide and guardian, passing down to her a precious ancient dakini lineage. Miao has had a close affinity with the Divine Mother Guanyin since she was three years old, when in a vision, she appeared before Miao as a tradi­tion­ally dressed woman holding a water-filled vase. She conveyed a clear message that she would become a guide for Miao. Yuan Miao is consid­ered an embod­i­ment of the Divine Mother, a dearly beloved teacher, healer, friend, mother, or sister. Just like her name, the Source of Infi­nite Water, Yuan Miao emanates the infi­nite love from the source of life to embrace, encourage and support everyone who comes into her energy circle.

Phoenix Mantra Concert


On April 18 and 19, at the Music Conser­va­tory Theater of Hangzhou Univer­sity (HNU) in Zhejiang Province, China, Yuan Miao and her Phoenix Mantra sound healing team presented the first Phoenix Mantra concert of 2015. Over a thou­sand people received bless­ings of Phoenix Energy and trans­mis­sions of the ancient eastern “Joyful Wisdom Phoenix Mantra”


It was a night of profound spir­i­tual trans­for­ma­tion as the audience’s collec­tive heart was ignited by Yuan Miao’s ethe­real chanting and the free, creative spirit of her Western sound healing team. These six world-class musi­cians contributed their creative essences to the process and together with the bless­ings of the Divine Mother and Miao’s play­fully compas­sionate pres­ence, uplifted the entire audi­ence with high-vibrational energy to enhance our collec­tive conscious­ness, phys­ical as well as inner strength.


Prof. Yaonong Tian, Dean of the Music School (HNU), welcomed the audi­ence and explained that unlike modern pop music, mantra is a primor­dial “music” that our ances­tors used in ancient times to culti­vate spir­i­tual aware­ness, connect with the Divine, pray for bless­ings, and prevent disaster.


The ther­a­peutic effect and profound healing of the heart invoked by “Phoenix Rising Mantra,” orig­i­nates from the energy of the Divine Mother, the source of our infi­nite poten­tial. This mantra connects us directly to Guan Yin and super consciousness–through the sacred “cord” of sound, we realize we are Guan Yin and the trans­for­ma­tive power of the Phoenix itself.


Yuan Miao’s Phoenix Rising sound healing band members are: Jason Henson, Heather Powers, Christo Pellani, Eddie Young, Vito Gregoli, and Alex Perez.

Wednesday, March 11

8:00pm – 9:30pm


Dakini Yuan Miao was invited by Dr. Chris Chapple to present a dharma talk at Loyola Marymount University (LMU). Dr. Chapple, Director of Masters of Arts in Yoga at LMU is widely respected for having paved the way for the higher study of Yoga in the West.

Widely renowned as an emanation of Guan Yin energy, Miao shared teachings about the open heart and healing. This event offered us all the opportunity to return to our true natures and the state of an “empty” and generous heart. In this Phoenix Rising era, opening the heart is an essential part of our awakening process. An empty, open heart allows us to manifest and discover the prosperity, abundance, wisdom and compassion which is our original, Divine nature. Hear from the heart. Be simple. Be empty and experience profound healing and deep connection with Guan Yin energy.

Shanxi Wutai Mountain Qixiange Hotel
Wutaishan, China

In the glorious space of Wutai Mountain, a site of ancient terma treasures and Manjushri Bodhisattva’s manifestations, Yuan Miao will wield the tremendous healing power of Mantric sound. Joined by the Phoenix Group instructors and supported by a team of compassionate volunteers, Yuan Miao invites to you experience this body, mind and soul-thrilling event.

2014 Wutai MountainIn her book, “Grandma’s Heavenly Writings”, Yuan Miao describes four elements which help us return to the source of life: Dharma, Treasure, Companionship and Location.  Location refers not only to the environment and general sense of feng shui, but to the potential embedded in an energetic terma point. Wutai Mountain, one of four Tibetan Buddhist holy sites, is just such a place – it is imbued with ancient auspicious Himalayan energy. The Phoenix lineage of Joyful Wisdom has a very deep and beautiful affinity with Wutai Mountain.  Heeding the mountain’s call and the exhortations of the ancient ones, Yuan Miao has chosen this sacred place to lead the Joyful Wisdom team to hold a workshop from Oct. 16 through Oct. 19, 2014.

Wutai ShanThis workshop will differ from those held in cities. Here, Yuan Miao will guide the participants to connect with the superior Wutai Mountain energy, and use Mandala patterns to open wisdom potential, enriching and improving each person’s life state. In Sanskrit, the word “mandala” combines the meanings of “high dimension frequency”, “endowed”, and “gathering together”. Yuan Miao’s mantric chanting manifests the essence of Mandala.  In contrast to ordinary music, mantric chanting is generated through deep states of meditation. Mantric sounds are not simply received through ordinary perception, but also reach into listeners’ deep consciousness. Through this, mantric chanting has the effect of conditioning chi and blood circulation, defying disease and senility, and relieving pain from the body. Mantric chanting also has the power to awaken wisdom potential, and transform negative, heavy energy into positive, promising energy. Thus realized, life can constantly be grounded in healthy, joyful and abundant states.

Thousands of years ago, our ancestors in China discovered sounds associated with each of the Five Elements (Metal, Wood, Water, Fire, and Earth), and the beneficial effects on their corresponding organs:  lung, liver, kidney, heart, stomach. The healing sounds can alleviate the negative emotions associated with each organ: sorrow, anger, fear, tiredness, and anxiety. In this workshop, musicians from the US with years of meditation and musical accomplishment have been invited to join in opening the participants’ senses, as well as reach their deep consciousness, through the healing power of the harmonious Five Sounds.

We wish all family and friends who share the affinity, to gather at Wutai Mountain to receive the greatest of care and practical help.

Tuition:   $650/person, excluding accommodation and meals

The Teachers

Yuan Miao

Born and raised in Beijing, China, Yuan Miao previously worked as a director of television documentaries on CCTV—a comfortable and successful life.

She was trained from infancy by her enlightened Tibetan grandmother, Yeshe Tsuomu, in the Supreme Tantric Dakini tradition. Yuan Miao’s spiritual background was brought to the forefront when her beloved daughter died of leukemia at age nine, and she realized the true nature of life through her acute suffering.

In 1999, guided by the Divine, Yuan Miao left everything behind and moved to the United States, where she founded the New Century Foundation.The Foundation serves as a link between the East and West, the material and spiritual, and the earth and cosmos. Over the past decade, Yuan Miao has traveled around the world sharing the heart-essence of joy, wisdom, and transmitting Dumu energy.

Yuan Miao emphasizes “a pure mind, a spiritual heart, and a smart body” to “romance enlightenment and attain Buddhahood resplendently”. Her teachings transcend religion, culture, and geography; their origins lie in the ancient wisdom that flows from the source of life, using fresh, contemporary ways to express the purity of the Himalayan spirit. They are simple, easy to do, yet profound. Most importantly, they reveal the wisdom, joy, and luminosity of our true nature.


Books: “On the Wings of Phoenix Rising”, “Reincarnation”, “Grandma’s Heavenly Writings”, “The Yoga of Joy”

CDs: “Love”, “Light Primodial”

Liao Liao (Assistant)

Liao Liao’s name was given to her by Yuan Miao, and comes from the Chinese phrase “Liao Liao Fen Ming,” which means “seeing all things clearly and truthfully”. Liao Liao hails from Xi-An, China, and spent 7 years living in Indonesia. She received her MBA degree from one of the most renowned universities in the US. She has spent time with many spiritual leaders both Eastern and Western, helping to introduce their wisdom to all. After years of practice under the guidance of Yuan Miao, she has received the lineage of Dumu energy, Yoga of Joy and balancing and harmonizing the seven chakras.

Ming Ming (Jorge L. Torres, Assistant)

Ming Ming is a typical Spaniard, emanating passion in every aspect of life. Yet, he has always been longing for the ancient oriental cultures, and has practiced spirituality with many influential yogis in many holy places of the Himalayas.

Ming Ming is a certified underwater photographer in the U.S. He worked for the National Geographic magazine and the Green Peace organization as a professional photographer.

For more than ten years Ming Ming has practiced Dumu energy and meditation under the guidance of Yuan Miao. These practices have helped expand his inner wisdom, enabling him to experience life at a deeper and deeper level. Making use of his camera, Ming Ming shares how to experience and appreciate the beauty and joy that exist in everything and every moment in life.

April 11, 2014
University of Southern California

University of Southern California | NewCenturyFoundation.comAs some of you know, Yuan Miao recently appeared at the University of Southern California (USC) as a guest lecturer during Dr. Rita Sherma’s class, “The Living Traditions of Hindu Yoga.” Miao made a powerful impression upon promising young yogis that day.

Watch the video below of Miao at USC expounding upon the true value and purpose of Yoga; the lineage transmission; and the tantric origins of the Tibetan Nyingma sect and its primordial relationship to the indigenous shamanic Bon tradition.  Her teachings reflect not academic nor religious matters, but rather how to receive and embody formless teachings as a yogi. As a woman spiritual teacher,  she inspired this new generation of yogis to stand up and play their roles as the new leaders in the New Century.

This is a rare and precious teaching which she has hardly ever shared in any class.

Tantra of Joyful Living

Master Miao May 2013 v5

December 18, 2012 to January 2, 2013 (in two parts)

Teachers Yuan Miao and Axun

Location: Zhangjiajie, Hunan Province, China (this unique place was the prototype for the movie Avatar‘s Hallelujah Mountain, and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site)

Leaders: Master Yuan Miao and Master Axun

Who is Master Yuan Miao?

Quite simply, Yuan Miao is a transmitter of Joy. To meet her is to experience her timeless essence at once. She effortlessly expresses this joy through dance, through chanting, through Shakti paintings, through yoga, and of course in words – words that transcend all language and penetrate all hearts. She was trained by her grandmother, Yeshe Tsuomo (“ocean of wisdom”). This precious lineage was instilled in her from infancy; Grandma gave teachings through the power of chanted mantra.

Yuan Miao gained renown as a director of CCTV documentaries, and experienced the fame and fortune such success could bring.  Yet all these riches faded when her beloved daughter passed away. The pain of loss sparked her deep spiritual journey. She discovered the meaning of life ~ that the spiritual path is not a refuge, but a form of service to others.

In 1999, under the guidance of universal wisdom, she left China and moved to the United  States where she founded the New Century Foundation. She told the story of her remarkable awakening in the book Dancing on Rooftops with Dragons, and has followed that with Reincarnation, and most recently, Grandma’s Heavenly Writings.

In her writings, CDs and Shakti paintings, her goal is the same—to bring ancient wisdom from the East to the fore in this modern world; to share esoteric doctrine with the world and prepare all those she touches to greet the new Phoenix Century.

Who is Master Axun?

Axun is an awakener, a spiritual author, Zen master, an artificial intelligence scientist, and a spiritual coach.

He was a renowned journalist and the director of a top-tier CCTV business and political talk show,”Dialogue.” In 2004, received the highest journalism honor from CCTV – The China Journalist Award.

On June 28, 2009, at the age of 34, Axun experienced a powerful epiphany, a boundary-less Oneness that lasted for months. Axun resigned from CCTV and started writing a series of books on spiritual awakening, including One Enlightened World; One Enlightened Zen; and One Enlightened Metaphor.

In 2010, Dr. Paul Joeng, a distinguished neuroscientist conducted a brainwave examination for Axun. It was concluded that Axun possessed the highest possible brainwave, meaning he has access to pure awareness. His ability to connect with Great Wisdom is a great gift to the whole world. Since 2010, through countless charity events, face to face lessons, webinars, and one to one coaching, Axun has developed over 100 coaching tools that help people to restore their spiritual conscious state and expand the clarity of everyday awareness. These remedies are crystallized from ancient oriental wisdom and western scientific research on human consciousness. They help people to elevate their physical and mental states, restore their awareness, and resolve any psychological issues. Over 20, 000 people have benefited from this experience.

The First Theme: Healing & Elimination

Meanwhile, all our friends around the globe (California, Washington, New York, Taiwan, Malaysia, Singapore, Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen etc.) will join together in this prayer.

The last day: Create a special Christmas celebration and invite all your family members to celebrate with us.

March 2012 – Taiwan

In response to an invitation from students in Taiwan, Yuan Miao traveled there in late March to give talks on her newly published book (in Chinese), Grandma’s Heavenly Wisdom, and conducted a two-day workshop entitled “Awakening the Source of Life.”

The tour covered the western part of Taiwan. The talks were given in the cities of Taipei , Chiayi and Kaohsiung, and the workshop was held in Puli, in central Taiwan.

This spiritual tour focused on how to develop a simplified mind, ethereal heart and intelligent human body; how to awaken dumo wisdom and link to the source of life; and how to enhance the light of awakening and to live comfortably, joyfully and securely in 2012.

October 2011 – Taiwan

Miao traveled and taught in Asia. Here’s a poster from one of her appearances in Taiwan.
