  • 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 - part of the journey to the highest peek. 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.

    Almost 14 years ago I participated in a program in the Shaolin temple where he used to live. This guy taught me proper meditation and breathing skills and shared his story with me. Absolutely fantastic person with an unbelievable amount of discipline and a mind which is the strongest I've ever encountered. One time the other 3 guys who were in the temple and I couldn't keep up with him and the monks and we fell behind during the morning routine. As punishment we had to do 500 push ups which sounded completely unreal but he said we won't get to eat unless we finished it. He said all this in a very calm voice and we just did it. He taught me how to achieve anything if you're disciplined and calm enough. 非常谢谢师父!

    The most important part is practicing. "I am not the body. I am not the mind. I am not my emotion. It's just that I can see all this three aspect about me"

    "All of our lifetimes, all of our lives are too unique to copy the path from someone else" This might be the best quote I've ever heard!

    Apparently, when you're a Shaolin monk, awesome music emanates from the surroundings whenever you speak.

    I’ve already watched this video like 10 times. Every time I listen to it I learn something new. It keeps me moving forward while still accepting the past.

    I've been a Buddhist my whole life. I actually know all these facts but the thing is I never knew how to add the practice of dealing with the hindrances in my day to day life. This is great! Probably the best Ted talk I've come across!

    I'm climbing my mountain right now but at the moment it is scattered with distractions and self doubt but I'm doing my best to learn to push through it all. I will make it to the top one day.

    nothing more I can say, his presence, presentation, speech, voice, stage presence, rhythm of speaking, all can reveal that he is beyond us all, so grounded, calm, composed, he just filled the whole room.
