The Heartlands Book Club: Meet Author Dr Tommy Wong | TOYL
TIme: 05:00 PM – 06:30 PM
Read together with The Heartlands Book Club, a dedicated club for book lovers.
We usually do not expect science and spirituality to intersect or coexist. Yet, Dr Tommy Wong, an engineering professor, proves this wrong with his deep spirituality and vast experience writing spiritual books.Dr Tommy Wong was previously an engineering professor at a university in Singapore. About 13 years ago, he left the university and transformed himself to become a spiritual author. In this session, Dr Wong will share his fascinating journey with anecdotes from two of his books, How an Engineering Professor Becomes a Spiritual Philosopher and How the Great Spirit Shaped My Life.
