Edith Guba studied various subjects, but everywhere something seemed missing. After her time at university, she learned Shiatsu and Qigong from several teachers. Qigong in the West did not seem complete to her. She wanted to travel to China and look for a teacher there. - Just then (1996) a Chinese master visited her town. She attended a course with him and learned exercises that were different from those she knew. She translated almost all of Guo Bingsen's courses from French into German, founded the Dao Yuan School with him and was appointed his successor by him in 2014.
