Master Shi Heng Yi – 5 hindrances to self-mastery | Shi Heng YI | TEDxVitosha


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.

  1. Sounds like a boring life to be honest. I like the exploration of distractions. My climb to the top might take longer, but I sure learned more about other things and how I relate to those things.

  2. This music has me thinking of inuyasha in some way. Lol I hope that is not offensive. Just an association my mind made. Either way love the music and the speech.

  3. I agree. I learnt this over the last 5 years of my life. You have to experience life on your own and figure what's best for you. Following other people paths or summary of their experience can ruin you. They may have learnt the wrong lesson

  4. Going to work every day to pay the rent and others bill is one heck of a challenge for lots of people in America.

  5. 4 has always been the big one with me… It's exhausting… Sometimes I think I need to live in a monastery a while maybe it would chill out.

  6. I can't understand a word this guy is saying. Look here Hop Sing, I opted not to take Japanese in high school. Could you speak English please? Sir, do I come to Japan talking English? Well then.

  7. Just take your time, relax, and wander to the top in your own way. No need to undergo the hardships unless you feel the need for challenge. No need to avoid the temptations so long as you know you will not obsess over them.
    The peak is only the first stepping stone on an endless journey. The key is to learn to enjoy that journey, not to struggle to reach a non-existent finish line.

  8. "I am not the body/mind/my emotion" yet I am the embodiment of the 5 hindrances lol. I think I need to climb the path to a monestary

  9. the ancient art of trickstering. every shaolin monk defeated extremely easily by plain boxer and monk poetry and pretend knowledge defeated by facts of reality. i guess not cut out to do work in medicine to help people. instead, a hopeful quick money scam.
