In the beginning...

Lin Morel and Associates was born on the back of a Chinese placemat in Santa Barbara, CA in 1984. A new acquaintance asked,  "If you could do anything, what would you do?"  After a deer in the headlights moment, Dr. Lin responded, "I would be a stress management consultant."  "How," asked the woman?  "Using martial arts principles, I would help them find stillness and peace in the middle of their busy lives." Her lunch partner jotted down a few notes, folded the placemat, and handed it over.  The conversation was quickly forgotten. Lin arrived at LAX and settled in for the trip home.

Mid-flight, her seatmate asked, "What do you do?"  Without thinking, Lin replied, "I'm a stress management consultant.  I help people find the stillness in the midst of their busy lives."  "Do you have a card?"  "No, not with me."  "How much do you charge?" she asked. Gulp, a figure delivered. "Are you available on this date? I need a stress management program." Quick, silent calculation. I can get that day off work. "Yes, I believe I am." Handshakes to seal the deal. No letterhead, no cards, no business plan.  The willingness to do gave her the ability to do.

A longtime martial artist and AAU nationally ranked karate champion; Lin had just returned from the first US-China goodwill martial arts tour.  Her travels took her to the University of Beijing, where she studied tai chi and healing arts, followed by the Shaolin Temple, Guangzhou, and daily joint Chinese-American martial demonstrations in other cities. The tour then performed in Hong Kong and Taipei, Taiwan.

While in Taipei, a martial arts master told her,"You have the heart of a master. Come study with me."  She returned the following year for intensive study and the honing of her ability to see and read energy.  Much to her surprise, word of mouth spread to the locals about the American healer in Taipei. It was a magical time of touching lives that continues to this day.
