Hor Tuck Loon
Bringing together other contemporary wisdom works which he realised and understood, Hor Tuck Loon 何德伦 offers a unique approach to understanding our own minds. His style of pointing and sharing provokes reflection and discussion through various courses, workshops and retreats. Using mindfulness+wisdom as a tool, he skillfully guides participants into understanding how recognising the mechanics of the mind brings about freedom, peace and release from mental stress.
Tuck Loon is one of the Advisor for Wisdom Inspired Supportive Endeavour (WISE), a non-profit Foundation formed in educating mindfulness through right understanding to the public. In 2006, he co-founded Clove&Clive as his earlier platform in sharing the work of mindfulness. He has benefited much from his first meeting Tejaniya Sayadaw, a Burmese teacher, in 2002 and has since does retreat with him nearly annually. He had also given talks and held retreats in Malaysia, China, Hong Kong and Turkey.
He has assisted Dr Jon Kabat-Zinn, in compiling two books entitled “Letting Everything Become Your Teacher” and “Arriving At Your Own Door”. Tuck Loon has written a small compilation entitled “Love Wisdom” and several articles for community distribution. He also writes regularly on his blog at www.illusiontoreality.com and shares his talks online at soundcloud.com/hortuckloon.
A project is in the pipeline where he envisioned a retreat centre, nestled in the pristine forest in Janda Baik, Pahang, for practitioners to do more regular retreats.
Chan Lai Fun
Chan Lai Fun 陈丽奋 has been questioning the meaning of life since her earlier childhood days, and this has somehow attracted her into exploring the many meditation retreats and workshops beginning 1984. Her first encounter with Sayadaw U Tejaniya in 2002 made a profound shift in how she viewed meditation and since then it has seen her meditating with Sayadaw yearly. Prior to that, she was an ardent practitioner of the Mahasi Sayadaw’s tradition.
Her structured style of sharing mindfulness techniques brings about deep clarity and understanding to participants as testified from the numerous courses conducted since mid-90s. Working with mindfulness+wisdom, her courses centers around developing mindfulness+wisdom-based living.
