Chinese culture often reflects their classical philosophy to promote
"holism, harmony, happiness, health, and healing" (5H). These are universal values that can help combat the escalating
mental health issues in academia today.
Chinese philosophy is a root and trunk of the world philosophy besides
ancient Greek philosophy. Its influence is far-reaching, not only
to other Asian countries, but to the West as well. With China's
rise as a major player in the world politics and economy, it becomes
increasingly necessary for Western people to learn and understand
traditional Chinese culture, to enliven them for a healthy and happy
life, and to live in harmony with Chinese people.
and the West are like two balancing forces of the Yin and
Yang that each depends on the other and mutually affects
the other. A harmonious relationship between the two superpowers
is the basis for maintaining world peace, harmony, and human health
and happiness. The
Curriculum of the Neoland School of Chinese Culture is thus built
on the five themes in Chinese philosophy to promote "holism-harmony-happiness-health-healing"
in human lives.
