The Curator is primarily transparent with my background. The Curator was ever misunderstood as too self-style and neither having lineage nor received proper training. So penning the Curator’s journey down can be useful for clients or friends who are curious about it.
Many practitioners market or brand themselves as one of or a mixture of the following:
- There are practitioners that cannot highlight enough that they are self-taught to tell you how brilliant they are .
- While some practitioners like to market themselves to have initiated into lineages belonging to famous masters as if it will be their masters providing the services instead of themselves.
- There will also be other practitioners claim that one or some God(s) / Buddha(s) / Deity(ies) / Angel(s) / <whatever> communicates and teach(es) them the skills they are providing.
The Curator belongs to neither of the above other than his initial journey on Tarot and Auspicious Name Selection that he started a few years ago, which were both self-taught. The Curator needs to qualify what does it mean by ‘self-taught’, it means The Curator would have read books about them and make sense what are the consistent principles throughout. There are people whom ‘self-taught’ means come up with their own thing.
The following are the trainings that The Curator have received and exposed to. They can be structured courses, hands-on workshops, informal trainings from other experienced practitioners or self-taught. Not all trainers provide certifications upon completion. The Curator lists them in chronology order and in respective categories in how the services are offered on this website. It makes more sense that way for relevancy. The Curator also tries his best to put the correct month/year.
I have received my trainings primarily in English language except for techniques that I have include the names in Chinese, in which I have received that training in Mandarin.
