A seminar introducing the principles of Shaolin culture and presenting the course with Master Shi Yan Hui

Chinese traditional medicine, the principles on which it is base and its practices within Shaolin culture are the themes that will be discussed in the seminar with Master Shi Yan Hui, a 34th generation monk of the Shaolin Temple. From the original perspective of Chinese traditions we shall analyse the relationships between Jung, Qi and Shen, providing an opportunity to understand the vision of man in the mind-body-society dimension that underlies the concept of health according to Chan Yi and its relationships with Buddhist philosophy and the martial arts, as well as illustrating the western point of view in a possible intercultural dialogue around the concept of health.
