OUR ADVENTURES IN CHINA
Taoist culture is one of the important components of Chinese traditional culture, one of the trends of social life in the history. Has played its influence so far. The Shilin stratum who represented the quintessence of the Chinese traditional culture considered ‘being an official’ and ‘living in seclusion’ as the pursuits in the different stages of ife and merged them into a single whole would be the ultimate target of lives. The formation of the value and spiritual world matched perfectly with the circulation and motion of Yin-Yang expressed by the diagram of the Taiji. Chinese people name the process of pursuing the balance as the cultivation of Taoism. You can still see the heritage of this spirit in many aspects of Chinese people’s lives today.
We launch this program to show how the Chinese spiritual core and their understanding of tradition have been changed under the profound impact of history and culture; how Chinese people pursue the harmony between man and nature inspired the essence of Taoism. In the meantime, when our guests get intimate with the famous mountains and rivers, they will also experience the Chinese romantic leisure like Chuang Tzu.
In the beautiful natural environment, we will observe closely how the Taoist priests practice Taoism and live in the temple and experience the living trendy started in Tan Dynasty. We will not just set up an altar for prayer rituals to present poising rules, apparatus, costume, musics etc in the original Taoist way but will also arrange the practices of tea-tastin, incense, calligraphy, meditating, swordcraft etc. All these will be practiced in the scenes of harmony of man and nature. We will also visit several World Cultural Heritages and get into the modern lives. Through all these, we will learn the continuation and development of the ancient Chinese traditions.
In addition, we will also take you to visit the ancient capitals of China: Beijing, Chengdu and the World Heritages: the Forbidden City, The Dujiang Dam. You will also meet with the treasure of mankind, the pandas.
