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.

“七夕今宵看碧霄,牵牛织女渡河桥。“ 古来,七夕为中国重要的传统节日。源起甚至可上溯至春秋战国时代。而七夕不仅有牛郎织女的爱情故事。 古来,七夕就有乞巧盼福、祭拜魁星的习俗。七夕, 宜许愿、结缘、静心凝神。

“人间梦隔西风,算天上、年华一瞬。” 七夕佳节,我们将书法与香道结合。品香奉香,书诗吟道。我们将挑选最适宜炎夏的季节香品,以传统打香手法,呈现香道之美。激发来自几十年沉睡磨砺而出的自然的奇迹。

我们还将邀请客人们静下心来,将此刻感悟,凝缩成墨化迹纸上。花笺薄如凉夏蝉翼,承载此刻相思无限。 

 

费用:35 CAD (包含香席、花笺以及SUNZEN特选七夕赠品)
