Chi­nese tra­di­tions ex­plained

Central Leader - - NEWS -

The cul­ture and tra­di­tions of an­cient China will be pre­sented in a free lec­ture next week.

Sik-Wai Tsoi from The Falun Dafa As­so­ci­a­tion will ex­plain the devel­op­ment of Chi­nese cul­ture over the last 5000 years, such as the evo­lu­tion from mar­tial arts to dance.

Mr Tsoi says since an­cient times China has been known as ‘‘The Land of the Di­vine’’, re­fer­ring to a place where the di­vine and mor­tals once co­ex­isted.

He says th­ese days that sense of his­tory is some­what lost.

The lec­ture pre­cedes a dance and mu­sic per­for­mance por­tray­ing the ‘‘di­vinely in­spired cul­ture’’, which will be held in Fe­bru­ary by the as­so­ci­a­tion.

The pre­sen­ta­tion on Chi­nese Civil­i­sa­tion of 5000 years will take place on Jan­uary 18 from 6.30pm at St Al­bans Church, 443 Do­min­ion Rd, Bal­moral.

For reser­va­tions and in­quiries con­tact Mr Tsoi at swt­soi@gmail.com or phone 021 166 4602.
