"As a rebel and freethinker, I am not usually attracted to masters. However, the moment 20 years ago that I met Don Ahn, I recognized him as a teacher who warranted my attention, allegiance, and trust. Far from esoteric or egotistical, Master Ahn has such purity and honesty in his teachings and in his life that his wisdom proves compelling on every level: spiritual, emotional, and physical. It's largely thanks to him, for example that as I hurdle into my "golden years", my sexual energy continues to hum."
