Healing Architecture: Tsz Shan Monastery’s Mindfulness Journey in Purifying Body and Mind


Tai Kwun Conversations is a series of talks that brings together brilliant minds to discuss the challenges and rewards in pursuing a sustainable future through the active management of heritage resources. Join us at this monthly event to discover outstanding practices in heritage conservation and strike up a conversation with our renowned guest speakers.

Throughout its halls and its grounds, Tsz Shan Monastery provides many spaces for contemplation, both open or intimate, formal or seemingly unplanned. Even inside its most stately buildings, nature is present throughout — in wood, granite, marble, and bronze — rich in texture and connected in origins. The upcoming Tai Kwun Conversations invites Dr. Jennifer Yim to share about the healing architecture of the Monastery and how its traditional design carves space for contemporary living, allowing visitors to purify the body and the mind.
