科学发展日新月异,然而科学的本质却从未改变。 为了探索现象背后的本质,我们运用大脑,建构严谨且可被验证的理论与实验,形成了知识。古人学禅,试图达到天地人合一的境界,藉此开启宇宙本有的智慧。大脑,身体,心念此时处于什么样的状态呢?科学如何解释这种状态呢? 禅与科学的交会将会让您耳目一新。(有兴趣者可点击这里参考相关资料。) 请点击这里看讲座信息。

Recap 上周日华夏大纽约元宵游行(HXGNY Lantern Parade Last Sunday):

二月二十四日不仅是春节之后的第一个节日,元宵节,也迎来了华夏大纽约中文学校的第一次唐装日和华灯游行。孩子们成群结队,环绕着学校,向人们展示着各式各样的灯笼,色彩鲜明的唐装。 游行结束时的礼物包则更是孩子们的最爱。老师们也不失时机地向学生们介绍中国元宵节这一传统的千百年历史,比起万圣节来,两场游行可说各擅专场,这也让学生有机会对两种文化对照比较、兼收并蓄。


02/24 not only marked the first major holiday after the Chinese New Year, but also witnessed the first Chinese Costume Day and Lantern Parade in Huaxia Greater New York Chinese School. In teams and groups, children walked around the school, showcasing colorful dresses and a variety of lanterns. The goody bag given at the end of the parade, of course, was the best part . Teachers also took the opportunity to tell students the thousand-year history of this Chinese tradition.  The Halloween parade and the Lantern Parade each had its own flavor, which gave students an opportunity to compare and to appreciate the uniqueness of different cultures.
