In this week’s Detox Webinar, our host Venerable Dr Juewei and Chair of the Buddhist Council of NSW Gawaine Powell Davies will be exploring what it is that people need, and what we can offer during the current global crisis.
When social distancing is the new norm, can we rise above our other self-constructed barriers and lend others a helping hand? Join the conversation to learn more about recognising our shared sufferings, and how to approach them.
About the Speakers
Gawaine Powell Davies is Chair of the Buddhist Council of NSW. Until recently he was Associate Professor and Director of the Centre for Primary Health Care and Equity at the University of NSW, where he worked for 20 years in research, development and evaluation of primary health care. He is also Chair of Sydney Insight Meditators, and a member of the Kookaburra sangha in Forest Lodge. In the light of recent world events his favourite word is now solidarity.
Venerable Dr Juewei is Head of Program for Humanistic Buddhism, Director of the Humanistic Buddhism Centre, and Lecturer of Applied Buddhist Studies at Nan Tien Institute in Australia. She teaches subjects related to Humanistic Buddhism (HB) and Chinese Buddhism, supported by her research and development that revolves around acculturation and application of Buddhist teachings in the modern world.
Juewei holds a PhD in Religious Studies, Master of Arts in Buddhist studies, a Master of Business Administration, and a Master of Science in Computer Science and Engineering. Juewei began her career as an applied R&D engineer in Artificial Intelligence systems in the 1980s and moved on to management positions in Singapore’s statutory bodies. She made her millennial decision to join the Fo Guang Shan order when she realised that she could be of the best service to humanity through promoting humanistic values in an increasingly-divided world.
