European Union and United Kingdom Course Orders

Unfortunately, we are not currently able to accept course enrollments from the E.U. or U.K. due to the need for VAT compliance.  If you are placing a course order from either place, it will auto-fail.  The system makes that determination based on address.  Addresses from non-VAT countries should process normally.

If you are placing an order from another country, and it is failing, please contact for assistance.

What is TMW?

This site is intended to provide sufficient information on Taoism for a motivated person to educate him or herself from a point of knowing nothing about Taoism to using the methods of the 1,500 year old 4 Ascendant Sphere Tradition to achieve a balanced, happy life.  Spiritually inclined individuals should also have enough information to acquire karma, and get themselves to significant self-awareness.

Most visitors use the site to retrieve a few bits of information about the marvels of Taoism– a perfectly acceptable and intended use of the website.

If you require explanation of an article or additional information, you are welcome to place a question into the comments section of an article where it will be addressed by Master Steenrod, one of his highly experienced mentees, or a practitioner of the 4 Ascendant.

This site is supported by course package fees.  Thousands of hours have gone into the production and testing of content for free.  A team maintains and upgrades the site with new capabilities as mentoring fees allow.

Donations are not accepted as is standard practice for the older Taoist, non-hybrid traditions.

Water Mountain Inc owns and operates this website.  The written content is produced by Master Mikel Steenrod, where so noted, under the auspices of WMI.
