Immunity in Community
In our last Webinar in The Detox Series: COVID:19 Edition, Venerable Dr. Juewei and Emeritus Professor Stephen Hill will be exploring how this Pandemic can be a portal for change and what lessons we can take with us into the future.
Have the values of our shared humanity rather than economic self-interest potentially emerge as guidelines for our future? Could compassion and the value of the gift rather than the deal, replace fine-tuned legal contracts binding the self-interests of each party? Join the conversation to learn more about what could come out of the end of this quite extraordinary ‘Moment of History’.

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.
