On August 22th (Saturday), let’s experience the magic of natural, organic incense, in combination with Chinese calligraphy!
At this event, you are invited to experience the traditional way of preparing and appreciating incense -- An experience allowing you to explore the possibilities of the all-of-natural magic, and the potential of your five senses. During the incense ceremony, we will also “play with” Chinese calligraphy. We will record the great feeling brought by incense with ink and brush. During the event, we hope everyone will be a poet, a nature explorer, and a meditator. (sanitized tools for calligraphy will be provided)
”Qi Xi”(tanabata, 七夕), also known as Qi Qiao (乞巧) Festival in China, is one of the most well-known traditional festivals in East Asia. In China, Qi Xi is a festival originated from the romantic legend of two lovers, Zhinu and Niulang, the former is a princess of heaven, and the latter is a cowherd. Chinese Qi Xi Festival inspired Tanabata festival in Japan, Chilseok festival in Korea, and Thất Tịch festival in Vietnam.
