Susan is a graduate of the Wm. C. C. Chen School of Tai Chi Chuan, where she studied Yang Style Tai Chi, Chi Kung, Meditation with Master B. P. Chan. Susan has also learned from other leading internal arts teachers, including Master Ping Zhen Cheng, with whom she studied the Wu Tang style of Tai Chi Chuan, chi kung and meditation.
The Water Method of Lao Tzu and the early Taoists permeates Susan's approach to the internal arts. As water wears away rock, practitioners of this method dissolve blockages and allow their energy to circulate freely. The Water Method builds a foundation of good health. From there practitioners learn to dispel their emotional and psychic ghosts and transform themselves into balanced, mature beings at ease with themselves and their environment.
