Mae Chee Sansanee - Serene Mind Workshop (by The Star Online.TV)

Mae Chee's workshop organised by Ti-Ratana Penchala Community Centre was a success. The press and media were taken by her peaceful aura.The press & media waited impatiently and constantly reminding us of their next appointment. As soon as they meet with Mae Chee they felt her peaceful aura and stayed till the end of the workshop!!! We had the privilege of hugging Mae Chee and that moment all I felt was tremendous joy.

She sent her message of peace and pure mind during her first visit to Malaysia recently.And if you missed it, here's a short peek during the recent workshop.It's an interview conducted The Star Online.TV

Words of Wisdom from Mae Chee Sansanee - Peace

Mae Chee Sansanee write up on The Star (today 15 Sep 2010)

RUNWAY model-turned-Buddhist nun, Mae Chee Sansanee will be setting foot in Malaysia for the very first time to conduct a spiritual workshop on Saturday at the Crystal Crown Hotel in Petaling Jaya.
Her humanitarian efforts as a peace messenger and to break the cycle of violence have been recognised by people across the globe and her followers include celebrities like Richard Gere and Lindsay Wagner.
At 25, Mae Chee was at the peak of her modelling career but still felt something was missing in her life.
Mae Chee: The model-turned-Buddhist nun will conduct a spiritual workshop on Sept 18 at the Crystal Crown Hotel in Petaling Jaya.
“After a lot of thought, she realised that the happiest moments of her life were spent serving people at the temple as a child,” said Datin Catherine Lai-Lee, member of the Ti-Ratana Penchala Commu­nity Centre which is organising the “Serene Mind” workshop.
“She made the life-changing decision to give up her glamourous lifestyle for the humble life of a nun and to spread the message of peace to all those around her,” she added.
Mae Chee went on to become co-chair for the Global Peace Ini­tia­tive of Women and founder of learning community for pregnant women, Sathira Dhammasatan.
A firm believer that peaceful thoughts can be instilled as early as the foetal stage, Mae Chee aims to reach out to pregnant women and their families about the importance of a peaceful mind and transmitting good thoughts to the unborn baby through the workshop.
“She has agreed to come and share her knowledge with us and I strongly recommend that people come forward and take the opportunity to learn from this remarkable person,” said centre founder and advisor Venerable Dhammaratana, adding that the number of seats were limited and would be given on a first come, first served basis.
“We welcome all expectant mothers, their partners and family members to attend the workshop,” said Honey Khoo, general manager of the Ti-Ratana Community Centre adding that participants were advised to wear loose, comfortable clothing and bring along their own cushion seat or yoga mat for some light exercise activities.
The workshop was the brainchild of 25-year-old Dhammasi Teo who requested that Mae Chee be brought to Malaysia after attending an inspiring spiritual retreat by the nun in Bangkok.
