About Andy James Andy's Journey

Shifu Andy James is an internationally recognized author and mind-body teacher who is a pioneer in explaining the interconnections between our “internal” and “external” environments – nature, politics, economics, religion, culture and more.  Harmony Dawn is a tangible manifestation of his vision, combining functionality, beauty, subtle energy, health, joy and harmony with Nature.

A former Chartered Accountant, Andy started offering mind-body training in Toronto in 1984.  The Tai Chi & Meditation Centre which he founded, has established a reputation for in-depth expertise and teaching experience, and offers courses in Insight Meditation, Taijiquan, Qigong, the Enneagram, Baguazhang, Xingyiquan and more.  Its unique Personal Mastery mind-body program offers profound, comprehensive and effective tools for coping with a lifestyle which is increasingly complex, confusing and stressful.

Andy was trained as a Vipassana (Insight Meditation) teacher by the renowned Thai meditation master and author, Dhiravamsa, and was an early senior student of Miss Rose Li, learning Taijiquan, Baguazhang and Xingyiquan with her.  Mr. James studied medical and martial Qigong with Professor Jerry Alan Johnson, qualifying as a Medical Qigong Therapist (MQT) with his organization, the International Institute of Medical Qigong.  He has served as an international martial arts coach and judge.  For a fuller internal arts bio and lineage.
