Sunzi for Everybody

Location: Amsterdam Shambhala Center, The Netherlands
Date: March 25, 2018 - 9am to 6pm

By: Eva Wong and Peter van der Molen


Every day we have to make choices at a high speed. In our work, on the street and in our domestic life, we are subject to a continuous unrelenting flow of information and options. If we do not make a choice – the situation will do that for us. Then we are no longer in control of what happens to us, but we will have to live with the circumstances imposed upon us.
How do we make strategic choices? What do we need to continuously weigh our options and chose our direction?
Sunzi – a Chinese strategist – once said: “ If you know yourself, and you know the situation you are dealing with – you will always come to a solution”. So that is what we will do this day. We will First experience our body and the space around us. After that we will explore the landscape of our lives, based on the practical instructions of Sunzi, that have been applied for the past 2500 years. Finally we will explore a clear road map, how we can integrate and apply the experiences of this day in our daily life.

Creating Enlightened Work Spaces with Sunzi’s Art of War

Location: Shambhala Center of Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Date: April 22, 2018 - 9am to 6pm

By: Eva Wong
To create a productive, uplifted, and enlightened work space, we need to understand what makes a space constrictive, unhelpful, and obstructive to harmonious activities and human dignity.

In Sunzi’s famous work on strategy, The Art of War, are examples of environments that cause conflict, confusion, aggression, and fear. In our working environments, such aversive conditions often exist, causing stress, disharmony, lack of motivation, and lethargy in the work place.

In this workshop, we will examine these kinds of environments, explore ways of neutralizing them through the Taoist practice of Situation Awareness, and experiment with designs that creative healthy, peaceful, dignified, and virtuous work environments.
