Learn Daoist Practices of Self-Cultivation

I teach people how to cultivate and balance their body, breath, energy, emotions and mind using practices from the Da Xuan Daoist tradition. These practices are incredibly simple and effective and have been trained in our school for more than 1,500 years. They are now available, both in person and online, to anyone with an earnest desire to learn more about themselves and the world around them. 

It is said that a journey of 1000 miles begins with a single step. Begin a daily practice today that can be with you for life. Training your body to become strong and deeply relaxed, your mind to be calm and focused, and your energy to be abundant.


Da Xuan is a family Daoist (often also spelt ‘Taoist’) lineage under the leadership of Serge Augier, which was formally established in 510AD. 

Daoism is a practice of self-cultivation and spiritual evolution that asks us to explore the way we function and our relationship with ourselves and the world around us. There are many different types of Daoism, and while the Da Xuan tradition shares similar origins to other Chinese traditions of religious or temple Daoism, our tradition is specifically non-cultural and non-religious. We are concerned with the development of human qualities, and as such our practices are open to anyone of any culture or belief.

Workshops & Retreats


I teach workshops on many topics of Da Xuan Daoism. Dive deep into practice and theory over single or multiple days, learning methods that you will be able to draw on for many months after the workshop finishes.

About Craig

I am an instructor (and student!) of the Daoist tradition called Ba Men Da Xuan, under the direct tutelage of the guardian of the tradition, Mr. Serge Augier

I started exploring self-cultivation methods in 2003. I accumulated significant experience training with some of the brightest minds in the world (see below) before joining the Da Xuan tradition in 2014. Having a lot of experience with many different modern modalities brings a unique vantage point to my traditional studies. I aim to present my teachings in a simple, clear way so that they are accessible to everyone without the need to turn into a weird spiritual persona.

I hold classes in Brisbane, Australia and teach workshops around Australia and internationally. I teach online through a variety of avenues.

Serge Augier & Da Xuan

Master Serge Augier is the heir of the Daoist tradition “Da Xuan”, which was passed from China to France through his teacher, Master Wang Tian Xian.

This tradition has a precise lineage, dating from the year 510 in Kunlun.

He teaches and practices the five arts of his Daoist School:

    • The Cultivation of Human Qualities (body-breath-mind)
    • Knowledge of World Changes (Yi Jing)
    • The Science of Destiny (Bazi, Ziwei Du Shou)
    • Daoist and Traditional Chinese Medicine
    • The Art of Forms (Feng Shui and Mian Xiang/Face Reading)
