In late 2018, Corbett and Irene returned to Taiwan from New York. As fate would have it they settled in Alishan Township at the foot of Tashan, and were given the tribal names – pasuya and paicu. Embracing their new identities they integrated into tribal life, and considered the mountains their home. Their vision and philosophy were well-received and supported by the tribe. In 2020, BPYS NGO was officially established, and MOTUS DOME was built in the mountainous. They also initiated various programs and projects including the Hidden Gem and Accompanied By Love programs, the Tashan Tree of Light art installation, MOTUS Living Room, and more. Moving forward from 2022 on, their main objective is to develop three key initiatives – a tribal arts corridor, a cultural lifestyle park, and a tribal forest experimental school.
The team fully supports the Rebalance Group concept which includes regular exercise, following a healthy diet, getting quality sleep, appreciation, balanced emotions, and well-being.
The team’s philosophy is to embrace the MOTUS lifestyle by blending eight key elements: Eco-conservation, Culture, Arts, Learning, Wellness, Appreciation, Science & Technology, and Sharing. This approach is aimed at creating a fulfilling and energized life.
Our team aims to support sustainable projects that empower young people to develop their talents, start families and businesses in the village. Our ultimate goal is to help them achieve financial stability, contribute to their community, and gain the freedom to live life and share with others.
