Trude has since 1986 taught courses and workshops at the YMCA in Corning New York, at the Corning Community College, for Corning Inc., and at the Middle School and Elementary School in Corning as well. She teaches in Deventer since 2011.
I did my doctoral degree in Social Geography of Non-Western countries at the State University of Utrecht. As a geographer I am concerned about the impact of climate change on the environment and the society. My experiences in Turkey and studies of other countries have moved me to strive for social justice.
By teaching Taiji I hope to convey the harmony between man and nature as well as the balance within and without.
Trude is originally from the Dutch East Indies. She received her
Doctoral degree in Social Geography of Non-Western Countries from
State University of Utrecht.
As often happens in life, good fortune brought Trude to taiji and
excellent teachers. In 1978 at Stanford University in California it
was Kuo Lien Ying. Afterwards Dominic Cheung at University of
California in Irvine made her understand the deeper underpinnings of taiji. Now it is Sam Masich from Vancouver and Berlin, who is leading her throught the complete specter of taiji. Through their dedication and love is Trude pushed to ever higher aspirations.
