About Yuan Tze's book Wellbeing begins with you

Since the first edition was published in 2013, thousands of Ren Xue practitioners have used it as an essential tool for deepening their work on life. In the last ten years Yuan Tze’s teachings have continued to expand and deepen and the Ren Xue system has become more comprehensive and established. This second edition is to better reflect what Ren Xue is now.

This edition speaks to conversant Ren Xue practitioners as well as newcomers who are serious about healing and uplifting life. It presents Ren Xue as a roadmap for navigating life. Readers can expect to develop a better understanding of life and the problems we have, and gain clarity on how to work on these problems and uplift life towards a place where natural qualities of life such as health, true happiness, a sense of wellbeing, and growth can fully manifest.

New stories are included in this edition to illustrate the change of content. All the stories used in this edition demonstrate how the narrators have been able to use Ren Xue to transform their lives in ways that far exceeded their hopes. The scope of the changes is as comprehensive as Ren Xue is intended for including changes on the Qi, physical, heart, and consciousness levels. Many of them could ordinarily be labeled as “miracles”. These inspiring stories are truly the gems of the book.

For many people, reading the first edition was a life-changing experience. More surprises are waiting to be discovered in this new edition!

Marsha Moore

Marsha began learning Ren Xue in 2009. She continued her studies because Ren Xue answered many of the questions other schools of thought left unanswered, including the purpose of life and why life unfolds as it does. She currently works with Ren Xue teachers, supporting them as they find unique and creative ways to bring this valuable information to others. She is grateful that her professional work as an educator prepared her to support Ren Xue in this way.
