This lecture is inspired by the many friends and colleagues who expressed to me their views of the Chinese civilisation, past and present. There are both positive and negative comments on the various aspects of China. Some of these views are passionate and some are constructive, amongst which are frank but critical views of China in the process of the current global contentions.
While China is becoming an economic power to be reckoned with, Chinese culture and philosophy, as a civilisation, have not received enough attention from scholars or the media. My intention in this lecture is to fill the gap by bringing in the ideas, the values the arts and the wisdom essential to the Chinese civilisation. This heritage can be used to create positive contribution to the world’s enlightenment and progress.
Specific emphasis will also be on the way of health and lifestyle in the Chinese tradition that is relevant to each of us living in the 21st Century. Such wisdom is important especially when we are facing hard times caused by the global economic crisis.
The beautiful landscape of mountains and rivers, the tea-drinking people and their herbal food culture will hopefully bring a lighter touch to this lecture and discussion.
We invite you to come and enjoy this unique afternoon tea talk experience. It’s FREE
