Unbeknownst to the world at large, a personal growth movement is taking shape in modern China. Yang Ziwei (known as ‘Annie’) is the founder of THE HOUSE OF I — a personal growth center outside of Beijing, China.
With over 10 years experience in running personal growth centers, Annie also serves as a relationship facilitator for international companies like IBM (China), philanthropic organizations and communities. Currently, she is creating the first Holistic Ecological Community in the form of Chateaus in China. When I visited the House of I, I loved the motto of her art and community oriented museum in Jackson Hole, China: “I gradually opened my eyes, understood Nature and loved it.”
