5 hindrances to self-mastery - Master Shi Heng Yi (TEDxVitosha)
Reading time: 2 minutes
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 â€“ 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 â€“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 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.
â€œThe universal law of being successful and happy at the same time means finding the balanceâ€, says master Yi. And as for flying â€“ 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.
