Shaolin Master Shi Heng Yi speaks beautifully about self-discovery and spiritual evolution – and what are the challenges one is likely to meet along the way.


In this talk he makes special reference to the 5 hinderances to self-mastery – and how they are the primary blocks to our progress.  For more than 30 years, Master Shi Heng Yi has been studying and practising the interaction between mind and body.  His strength is the ability to smoothly combine this spiritual knowledge (which largely comes from the Buddhist tradition) with physical exercises such as Kung Fu and Qi Gong.


He lives at the Shaolin Temple Europe Monastery, located in Otterberg, Germany.  Since 2010 he has been taking care of the settlement and spreading the Shaolin culture and philosophy.  He is a contemporary monk, who sees no contradiction between living with ancient knowledge and values… whilst benefiting from the best of technology.  His philosophy for being successful and happy in the modern world is finding the point of balance between all things.
