Di Zi Gui Workshop


Course Objectives

With added wisdom from the Chinese Common Courtesies and Liaofan’s Four Lessons: Changing Destiny that we have learned since 2020, we will re-visit Di Zi Gui in the year 2022, “the fundamental guidelines for being a decent human being”. For a newcomer, you will gain insight into how important one’s family is to a person, and what are the guidelines to help us to maintain a happy life and realise “Home is Where our Journey Begins”. For the veterans, this course will serve to “re-charge” our positive energy, and resolve difficulties in the face of challenges from human relationships: Parents and Child, Husband and Wife, Elders and Juniors, Leaders and Subordinates, and finally Friendship.

Come to Malaysian Han Studies to meet new friends, reconnects with old classmates, enjoy the sequin ambiance of Mahans and the delicious vegetarian lunch. Many of the past participants have shared their stories and benefited from the open and frank small group discussions moderated by our facilitators. As better thoughts make better days, we invite you and look forward to the wonderful and mutual learning experience.
