Event Details

Feb 1, Room 337 --- "The Magic of Peacefulness and Endurance in Busy Life"

Overview: Do you always feel occupied by study, internship, work and relationships? Do you spend extra energy struggling with them? Are you always overridden by these issues rather than actively facing up? The most energy-saving method is just accepting rather than rejecting or avoiding them. What is the better way to internalize these stresses without conflicting your own values? Here is a workshop that combines the views from Buddhism and Positive Psychology to give you some knowledge to deal with stresses and provide a real-time meditation practically.


Feb 2, Room 340 --- "The Master of Happiness is Your Mind"

Overview: Why some people are happier than you even though you are wealthier and prettier? Or ironically, you always believe that wealthier and prettier people are happier? It turns out the physical world does not determine happiness level but the perception about the world does so. Neuroscience interprets human perception as very selective and limited because it is shaped and mediated by the network of different but finite neurons. Have you ever thought about what governs the function of the brain network? Is there anything superior to the brain? Can we raise our perception level by inspecting that superior master? That bewildering and looming master is our mind. It is subtle but profound. In this workshop you will have the opportunity to have a closer look at your mind with a lesson about mind-only school and complimentary meditation practice.


About the Host

Yuan Hao Shi: After completing her PhD and Postdoc studies in chemical engineering in the United States, Yuan Hao worked as a Senior Systems Engineer at Air Products and Chemicals, Inc. an American international corporation, before becoming an ordained nun of Tibetan Buddhism.

Yuan Hao Shi took refuge in 2007 and delved systematically into a thorough study of Buddhist teachings following Khenpo Sodargye Rinpoche, one of the most influential spiritual leaders of Tibetan Buddhism. In 2011, Yuan Hao Shi received her ordination as a Buddhist nun from Sodargye Rinpoche, her root guru, and continued to learn sutras, shastras and tantras of the Nyingma lineage at Larung Gar Five Sciences Buddhist Academy in China, the largest and most influential center for the study of Tibetan Buddhism in the world according to the New York Times. Yuan Hao Shi has finished studying the Five Great Treatises and is now overseeing Sodargye Rinpoche’s translation group at Larung Gar.

Yuan Fei Shi: From 2009 to 2013, Yuan Fei was a college student in Jiangxi University of Finance and Economics, majoring in International Accounting. By the end of 2013, after having started her graduate studies at the University of York, UK, Yuan Fei’s interest in Buddhism was initiated. In 2014, after having attended the Fourth World Youth Buddhist Symposium in Hong Kong, Yuan Fei re-began her formal Buddhist studies of various sutras, shastras and tantras.
