My Chi Journey is made for those who reach for something greater. It’s for those who won’t settle for the ways of the world and how things are, but instead are inspired by something beyond and how things could be.



My Chi Journey was conceived in the humble outskirts of Sydney (Australia) in 2014. It was the birth of a simple idea, that life itself has much to teach you, if only you are silent for long enough to listen and look closely enough to see...  


The world seems obsessed with diversity and what makes us all different, we are much more fascinated with what we all share in common. What are those threads that tie us all together, that makes us fundamentally human? These answers are not found in books, nor on the Internet – but only through your lived experience.


In bridging the gap between knowledge and wisdom, between knowing and understanding. In seeing the world as it really is; and facing up to some fundamental truths, those things that have remained unchanged across cultures and across time. 


We are here to guide you on your path towards living the full rich human experience and part of that is recognising that life was never meant to be easy, you were instead meant to be stronger.

So, Let's go.
