LEARN FROM CLASSICAL CHINA
Feng Shui Study Tour of China
17 – 30 October 2015
The best way to learn Feng Shui is to visit and see how Feng Shui is used in traditional and modern Chinese architecture and planning with your own eyes, especially in the location and layout of residential dwellings, gardens and villages, as well as temples and sacred mountains.
In this 14-days trip we will concentrate on the rich agricultural “belly” of China, starting from Shanghai and travel a “loop” through Hongzhou, Suzhou, Huangshan, Nanchang and Xiamen, then back to Shanghai. The mode of travel will include by road, by train and by air.
You will see scenic mountains, sacred temples, quintessential Suzhou gardens, well-preserved ancient houses and villages, also the very special Fujiang earth dwellings (Tulou). During the trip, we are invited to participate in a Daoist festival high up in the Qiyuan Mountain to mark the 9th day 0f the 9th moon in the Chinese calendar. The Daoist monks from the Wanshouguan Temple in Nanchang have also offered a very special blessing ceremony for us when we visit them.
We will stay on top of the Huangshan Mountain to watch the sunrise high above the clouds. Also you will have a chance to learn about Chinese calligraphy and painting in a local artist’s studio and also visit a Luopan maker and his museum in Wanan. Another special treat for this trip is you will meet a local Feng Shui master in Xidi and see his work on Yinzhai (gravesite) Feng Shui.
This is a unique opportunity for you to experience classical China that is fast disappearing. To maintain the “exclusive” nature of the trip (it is not possible to experience a sacred China with a large group), a limit of 25 participants is set, so please register early to avoid disappointment. The language used is mainly in English with some translations when feasible. Cost is to be finalized but it will be in the vicinity of Euro 2,500.00 – 3,000.00 to cater for 4 to 5 stars and “unique” accommodations.
To register your interest, please contact us by email and we will send you a detail itinerary for further consideration.
