Yuan Miao lectured at USC on March 26th

Miao will be a “guest lecturer” this Wednes­day at the Univeristy of South­ern Cali­for­nia (USC). She was invited by Dr. Rita Sherma to share about tantric yoga, mantra and yantra in her “The Living Tradi­tions of Hindu Yoga” class. It will be a wonder­ful oppor­tu­nity for Miao to share the depth of our lineage with these fledg­ling yogis! May the Phoenix rise at USC!

ACR Yaun Miao

Yuan Miao was inter­viewed on the Unsung Goddess Radio Show 2/12/14. She talked about Joyful Yoga and what we can all do to achieve a profound spir­i­tual trans­for­ma­tion. Yuan Miao shared the Guan Yin teach­ings and trans­mis­sions she has received through­out her life and her own Phoenix Rising process.

Excerpted from host Heidi Woolard’s inter­view with Miao on The Unsung Goddess:

Om mani padme hum. This mantra I give to each one of you…if you have pain…if you’re worried, if you’re fear­ful, angry, confused. Now, deeply breathe and receive the frequency of the mantra. This comes from Guan Yin to help you rebirth from any kind of ashes. Om mani padme hum. Om mani padme hum. The lotus grows from mud. The mud looks dirty, terri­ble, dark, but the mud has rich nutri­tion. All kinds of suffer­ing are bitter, just like mud. The lotus comes from mud. Just like all life, all enlight­en­ment beings come from suffer­ing, from chal­lenges. Just keep going. Keep the belief. Keep the direc­tion. Don’t run away. Don’t run away. Stay here…Yes, let’s walk hand-in-hand, heart-to-heart and together, stay here. Stay on the path.
On witness­ing Grandpa Zhang’s death at the ripe, old age of 7

After a few days, I was in some kind of trance…every night, when I went to bed, my conscious­ness went to the graveyard–into the coffin. I saw Grandpa lonely, hope­less, cold. I under­stood him, his whole feel­ing. This expe­ri­ence some­how opened the door of my conscious­ness. I real­ized life and death. But at that time, I was so scared. I was scared about death, about lone­li­ness, about people having no love.

This expe­ri­ence left me with big ques­tions: Why did we come to the world? Who am I? Where am I going? What is the purpose of life? Why am I here? Why do people have to die? How can we over­come “imper­ma­nent” life? There was nobody to teach me, it just came out of this experience–thinking about life. What is the purpose of life? Why do people have to die? Are we not going to have eter­nal life? Contin­u­ally, these ques­tions emerged for the bene­fit of my “later” life.


For Tibetan esoteric dharma teach­ings or to learn Dakini teach­ings-what kind of foun­da­tion is neces­sary? If you don’t know death, you cannot receive esoteric dharma teach­ings. Later, I knew this; before I didn’t know this. The whole expe­ri­ence about Grandpa Zhang taught me that if you over­come the illu­sion of death, over­come the illu­sion of life, you can real­ize the Truth.

Workshop in Xi’an China


IMG_7488The first 3-day work­shop in Xi’an, Shanxi, China was held in Novem­ber and was attended by roughly 200 people from all parts of the coun­try, as well as by indi­vid­u­als from Singa­pore and Malaysia. The work­shop was conducted in Zhong Nan Moun­tain, famous as the birth­place of Lao Zi’s Tao Te Ching. Zhong Nan Moun­tain is believed to be the mani­fes­ta­tion of the female (mother) energy of the universe.


During the work­shop, Teacher Miao talked about the central chan­nel which resides in the middle of our bodies. The central chan­nel consists of three merid­i­ans; the right or “Heav­enly Water” merid­ian carries the merits we have accu­mu­lated life­time after life­time, not only from our own living, but also that which we inherit from our ances­tors; the left or Dragon Wind merid­ian, carries each one’s focus for this life­time; the middle or the Essence merid­ian, houses the most auspi­cious and precious Blue Pearl.
Teacher Miao explained that prac­tic­ing Yoga of Joy harmo­nizes our seven chakras and that chant­ing mantras would specif­i­cally strengthen our central or Essence chan­nel, enhanc­ing our abil­ity to resolve diffi­cul­ties and chal­lenges. Prac­tice of Yoga of Joy allows us to expe­ri­ence abun­dance and inner peace in our every­day life, directly connect with the precious Blue pearl, and return to the infi­nite “Source.”



Yuan Miao visits Loyola Marymount University and their inspired Director of Yoga Studies, Chris Chapple.


Today (8/26/13), Miao shared sacred mantra and wisdom teachings to inaugurate and bless the inception of the Masters in Yoga program developed by Chris. How auspicious and blessed for these graduate students to receive transmission of the Manjushri mantra from Guan Yin on their first day of class! Hearing this mantra from Miao was a first and brought tears to my eyes. After a decade of hearing mantras from Miao, they still have the profound power to open my heart ever wider. Many of the students were spontaneously teary-eyed as Miao shared mantras and sincerely expressed her gratitude for investing in themselves and their studies for the benefit of others. She shared that she felt  “hopeful,” for the world, because they were so radiant, advising them to “never give up.” ~ Jin Lian Hua

Miao “returned home” and visited her dear friends, Rev. Dr. Michael Beck­with and his wife Dr. Rickie Byars, co-founders of Agape Inter­na­tional Spir­i­tual Center in Culver City, Cali­for­nia.

When they first met, they had imme­di­ate affin­ity for each other, each recog­niz­ing the other as a member of Guan Yin’s Divine “team.”  Upon feel­ing the trans­for­ma­tive power of Miao’s mantric voice, Reverend Michael invited her to host a third Phoenix Rising mantric concert at Agape for the bene­fit of the local commu­nity. They knew they would even­tu­ally meet again and with Divine timing, collab­o­rate to assist in our collec­tive eleva­tion of conscious­ness.

Join her in this video from August 4th, as she shares sacred mantras during Agape’s tradi­tional Sunday morn­ing service. Please watch 11:30 am service around 2hr:43min to share in the power­ful vibra­tional energy!–04-2013/#.UgBbRVOIL8B

May we all continue to grow in love, compas­sion and wisdom. Ya la suo!
