Joan He is our young Integral Taichi instructor who has founded Compassionate Service Society France (CompaSS France) in 2008.

Since 2000, as a young layman, he has tirelessly promoted the teaching of Buddhism in the form of Integral Taichi and integral Meditation. In 2013, Joan consummated his effort into integral Taichi Global, and built a community of integral Taichi of over 600 teachers all over the world, including USA, Canada, France, Germany, Holland, Hungary, Taiwan, and Vietnam.
