Meet Shaolin Master Shi Heng Yi in his serene talk about self-discovery
Learn why rainfall is an essential part of each flowering. And every small step is part of the journey to the highest peak.
The hindrances along the way to self-discovery and personal growth are easy to overcome. Learn how from his talk.
For more than 30 years, Master Shi Heng Yi has been studying and practicing the interaction between mind and body.
His strength is the ability to smoothly combine this knowledge with physical exercises and to practice Martial art –Kung Fu and Qi Gong.
He has an academic background but he prefers to live at the Shaolin Temple Europe, Monastery located in Otterberg, Germany.
Since 2010 he has been taking care of the settlement and he personifies the sustainable development and spreading the Shaolin culture and philosophy.
As a contemporary monk, Master Yi holds a smartphone in the folds of his clothes as he sees no contradiction between living together with ancient knowledge and high technology.
“The universal law of being successful and happy at the same time means finding the balance”, says master Yi.
And as for flying – yes, he really can do it! He only needs a stick and a little space.
We expect him to fly-in and share about the Shaolin way at TEDxVitosha 2020.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
Summary of main points
5 Hindrances to Self-Mastery
- Sensual desire (sight/touch/taste/smell/hearing) = Am I addicted?
- Ill will / aversion = Am I feeling a negative emotion?
- Dullness / heaviness = Am I unmotivated?
- Restlessness = Is my mind jumping from though to thought?
- Sceptical doubt = Am I indecisive?
Recognise which one you’re experiencing
Accept that’s what you’re experiencing
Investigate why you’re experiencing it
Non-identify with that experience: ‘i am not the body, i am not the mind, i am not my emotion’
