In 1990, Tienko Ting began leading Natural Chi Movement workshops throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia. Born in Taiwan, he studied chi-enhancing techniques before discovering this ancient form of chi activation, which is believed to extend back to Bodhidharma, the renowned fifth-century Zen master.
Tienko is the author of Natural Chi Movement: Accessing the World of the Miraculous. His work is the subject of Neither Man, Nor Butterfly: My Adventure with Tienko Ting (and Gilbert), Dr. Marcin Fabjański’s account of healing from a hereditary liver disease.
By training and occupation, Tienko is an aerospace engineer. For ten years, he was the head of the Mechanical Engineering Department at the University of Bridgeport. Tienko earned his undergraduate degree from Trinity College in Ireland, and a doctorate from the University of Michigan.
