In China, incense burning is a long established tradition and has many applications. Incense is burned to provide pleasant fragrances for rooms and clothing, to communicate with the gods, and to drive out evil spirits. Burning incense during I Ching readings is an absolute must, because it creates the right atmosphere in which to receive the divine wisdom or the pure breath of the gods. During this class, you will have an unique chance to broaden your horizon and knowledge about the old ancient Chinese incense culture. You can also witness an authentic and less known introduction into one of China’s oldest preserved traditional customs – the ceremony of burning incense. Immerse yourself into the aromatic fumes of refined fragrances and mentally travel back in time.
