Zhou Xiaoping (Alison) embarked on her path as a distinguished scholar and practitioner of Diamond Cutter wisdom in 2011. Over the past decade, she has disseminated her knowledge and teachings across various countries, including China, Canada, and Singapore. Her work strongly emphasizes the translation, preservation, and modern application of ancient classics.
In her role as a personal assistant and translator for Geshe Michael, Alison plays a critical role in bridging language barriers and is actively involved in the publication of Geshe Michael’s books. Her commitment to education led her to become a Sedona College of International Management professor.
In partnership with Stanley Chen, Alison co-founded the Future Diamond Cutter Institute, marking a significant milestone in their shared goal to empower individuals through ancient wisdom. Together, they initiated transformative programs such as the China Soft Power Global President Program (CSP) and the Pure Gold projects. These programs aim to equip business leaders with ancient wisdom and foster a business civilization focused on the central value of “helping others succeed.”
Pure Gold Translation is a non-profit that translates ancient classics and related courses into modern Chinese. This endeavor aims to serve Chinese individuals worldwide, enabling the translation of classics and the practical application of wisdom in business and personal life.
Beyond her scholarly endeavors, Alison is a dynamic young entrepreneur from Shenzhen, China. She has a track record of success in commercial startups, charities, and cultural preservation organizations.
