Description

Dear Parent,

The Minghui Summer Camp this year is scheduled to take place in Cambridge between 7th to 13th August. The theme this year is to improve cultivation as a child Falun Dafa practitioner. Child practitioner needs to be diligent to keep up with the Fa rectification.

Every child practitioner, just as an adult practitioner, is the king from the heaven, who descended in the human realm to assist Master and to save sentient beings. Upon fulfillment of the vows, we can return to the heaven. Because of our human attachments, many children work very hard in academic study and try to secure opportunities for the future. Unfortunately they forget to cultivate diligently. Some even forget that they are practitioners. They forget their vows.

We are hoping children enjoy the time at the yearly Minghui Summer Camp. Meantime Minghui Summer Camp provides the environment where young practitioners cultivate together and elevate together. But the most important thing is to keep and carry forward the cultivation into their daily life. After the camp, they would know that they are a cultivator and would have positive influence to the family and society. Let the larger crowd be able to see the beauty of Dafa from our child Dafa practitioners, and be uplift and saved by Dafa.

Working along this line of thinking, the camp curriculum contains daily practice and Fa study, as well as learning Chinese and age-tailored training on how to clarify truth. To make the camp life full of joy and to fully engage children, we invite two (male and female) teachers who retired from Shen Yun. They will teach the most authentic classical Chinese dance. Stories staged on Shen Yun will be retold through the teaching. Children will understand the beauty of classical dance through female and male figures.

We also invite the Cambridge based practitioner Golnar Malek, who is also an artist to run the art classes. The basic techniques, field trips and craft making are all part of the art lessons.

Teachers

About Bowen Du, male dance teacher
Since 2010, Bowen has danced for the renowned dance company Shen Yun Performing Arts and toured across many continents, performed at many prestigious theatres, and presented in front of many eminent figures. He has assumed many lead roles/characters; for example, “Sand Monk.” Bowen has also participated in numerous dance competitions, and was awarded with the “Outstanding Dance Award” on many occasions. After retiring from stage, Bowen has taught at Clearview School of the Arts and Culture, Feng Huang Dance Academy, and also hosts his own private classes. Bowen has an outstanding understanding of Chinese dance fundamentals and excels at Chinese dance techniques. Today, Bowen wishes to spread his passion and love for dance to those with an interest through different programs and classes.

Cecilia Xiong, female dance teacher

Ms. Cecilia Xiong was Lead Dancer for the famous classical Chinese dance company, Shen Yun Performing Arts, from 2006-2010. She has toured the globe and performed before millions of people in some of the worlds most prestigious theaters. From 2010 to 2017 she was dance program director at Xian Yun Academy of the Arts in California (formerly Fei Tian Academy of the Arts), where she remains an active board member. Cecilia now resides in Toronto and is teaching at Clearview School for the Arts and Culture. With her passion for classical Chinese dance and traditional Chinese culture, Cecilia continues to bring wonderful, fun and educational classes and programs to people of all ages wherever she goes.

Golnar Malek, art teacher

Golnar is a mixed media artist and Mother of two young children. She started her artistic endeavor at the age of 3. Since 1999, she has been exhibiting widely and her last ventures were in Tehran, London, and Amsterdam. Over the past six years, she has been working at Christ's College Visual Arts Centre. Her pieces are kept in public collections at Christ’s and Murray Edwards Colleges. With a background in architecture, she has advanced drafting skills, which is the core module in her workshops for children. She believes that children need to learn line drawing, like they did over the past few generations. In her view, while experimentation does allow inspirations, it is only useful once the basic skills are covered. Over the course of the summer camp, she will be working on the theme: Imagining Heavenly Flowers. The children will learn how to draw with a variety of line thicknesses. The highlight of their final exhibition will be a painted fine china piece and a backlit painting that can be used for bedtime. They will visit the Fitzwilliam Museum and the Cambridge University Botanic Gardens to study the nature and old masters’ representations of flowers.



The core module of the camp curriculum remains classic Chinese, Truth-clarification courses, Fa study, doing practices and truth clarification activities. We hope that children make huge leap on cultivation meantime have plenty of fun.

2017 UK Minghui Summer Camp Preparation Team


親愛的大法小弟子家長们,

2017英国明慧夏令营将于8月7日至13日在剑桥举办。今年夏令营的主题是:小弟子再精进跟上正法进程

每个小弟子都是天上的王,来到人间助师正法兑现誓约,圆满后回归天国。由于我们整体的懈怠,很多孩子受家长们的影响陷入了繁忙的学习中在为有个好的前程而努力拼搏,在修炼中不精进,甚至有些小弟子忘记了自己是大法弟子,忘记了自己的誓约。

我们希望通过一年一度的夏令营,一遍一遍的给孩子们提供修炼精进的环境,让孩子们在比学比修的环境中不断的学法修心加强正念,并使这种精进的状态能够得以延续,带入日常的生活之中,在结营以后的日子里也能时时想到自己是个修炼人,影响家庭,影响社会,让更大层面的人群能够从我们大法小弟子展示出来的风貌中看到大法的美好而心中升起善念,被大法救度。

为了实现这一目标,我们除了每天带孩子们学法炼功外,还将根据孩子的年龄特别教孩子们学习中文和讲真相的方法和技能。为了让孩子们的生活更加丰富多彩,满足孩子们的兴趣爱好,同时也为了发掘和培养未来的神韵舞蹈演员,我们还请来了从神韵艺术团退役并有多年舞蹈教学经验的男女两位舞蹈老师教孩子们学习中国古典舞,教授神韵的舞蹈片段,以及如何表演诠释神韵舞蹈中对男性阳刚与女性温柔至美的要领,让孩子们在舞蹈学习中受到美的熏陶,在举手投足之间展示大法小弟子仪表气质的高贵优雅威武俊逸。

同时我们还请到剑桥大法弟子专业美术家Golnar Malek教授孩子们绘画基本功,带孩子们到植物园和博物馆考察学习,现场观摩并将学习观摩的成果制作成工艺品带回家作为永久的纪念,提高孩子们的审美情趣。

主要老师介绍:

男舞蹈老師杜博寬(Bowen Du)在舞台上曾經塑造了勤勉踏實的“沙和尚”,而在現實生活中,他也一樣勤奮的在各個學校中教授著中國古典舞,把他對這份藝術的熱愛傳遞給未來的舞者。女舞蹈老師熊俊秀(Cecilia Xiong)是神韻大班畢業生之一,她在結束了五年巡演後,置身於古典舞教學,曾是加州仙韻藝術學校(原加州飛天藝術學校)舞蹈系主任。目前,她雖然身居多倫多,仍在當地繁忙的舞蹈教學工作之餘,承擔仙韻董事會成員的責任。熊老师善於寓教於樂,將唯美的中國古典舞和中國神傳文化結合,輕鬆幫助海外華裔學生理解古典舞的“身韻”。

今年的課程除了精彩的中國古典舞外,還有一流的視覺藝術課程。該課程由在劍橋大学工作的大法弟子、專業藝術家Golnar Malek授课。 Golnar三歲開始她的藝術生涯,她的創作從1999年開始參展以來,曾經在德黑蘭、倫敦、阿姆斯特丹等多地展覽,目前她的部分作品收藏在劍橋大學的Christ’s College和Murray Edwards College兩所學院中。她不僅會教授孩子們繪畫基本功,也會教孩子們製作手工藝品。

此外,今年夏令營增设了让孩子们了解法轮大法真相,以便让孩子们主动思考如何讲真相,救度众生兑现誓约。同时仍然有中文課程,每天坚持學法、煉功。我們希望孩子們在夏令營這個集體的環境中,不僅學到知識和技能,還要在修煉上比學比修,勇猛精進,不辜負來世的誓約,承擔起救度眾生的責任。
