Our Mission and Future Vision
by Cynthia O'Donnell - ACAE Board Member

shifuSince early childhood Master Yun Tseng lived with and trained in the Taoist Arts under the tutelage of Grand Master Li of the Longmen branch of Daoism on Wudang Mountain in China. Grand Master LI tasked her disciple to establish a Daoist temple in the U.S. for the preservation of Daoism. In accordance with his mission, Master Chen established the Association for Chinese American Enrichment (ACAE) with a non- profit 501 c3 in 1996, with the mission to promote Wudang Taoist Traditions in the U.S. that preserve Taoist cultural and religious practices.

In 2005, the ACAE sponsored a Taoist Summit in Boulder Colorado where 30 Taoist Priests and Priestesses came from Wu dang to perform and teach various Taoist Disciplines and Ceremonies. In 2009, ACAE established the San Feng Academy Scholarship Fund where ACAE members sponsored children to enroll and train in traditional Wudang martial arts in Wudang for the goal of creating a performance team.
