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.

_H2A8843 _H2A8782 _H2A8864 _H2A8765

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.

This prac­tice helps us release the phys­i­cal, mental and emotional stresses of modern life, while return­ing us to our “spir­i­tual home” and our innate state of child­like joy.

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

Guan Yin

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 Fearless Way:
The Transformative Power of Tibetan Mudras and Mantras,
with Loving Tara (Susan Sattler)

These beau­ti­ful mudras and mantras come from the Vajrayana lineage of Dakini Yuan Miao. In Vajrayana, bene­fi­cial hand gestures known as mudras and holy sounds known as mantras are closely related to power­ful and trans­for­ma­tive energy. When prac­ticed as part of an inte­grated system with breath-work, visu­al­iza­tion of light and colors, medi­ta­tion and clear inten­tion, they become secret codes that help us exchange and commu­ni­cate messages with the universe.

  • Learn to open your central chan­nel to the univer­sal energy source
  • Connect with your true nature as a mani­fes­ta­tion of the divine
  • Increase your abil­ity to attune to your own self-heal­ing energy
  • Create the oppor­tu­nity for emotional, spir­i­tual and phys­i­cal heal­ing
  • Tran­scend worry and fear, reclaim­ing a life of joy and spon­tane­ity
  • Expe­ri­ence being relaxed, centered, ener­gized, clear and balanced
  • Culti­vate outer peace through inner peace

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.
