Three 3-day workshops for adults and children, to refresh and renew over the holidays.
The pace of life in Hong Kong is incredibly fast, but the disruptions brought by Covid-19 has forced many of us to re-examine our lifestyle. As our travel options this holiday season is drastically curtailed, we invite you to spend your time differently, to explore more profound topics and ponder deeper questions that can rejuvenate our everyday life.
In parallel with the workshops for adults, we are also offering workshops for children aged 3 to 11 – a mindful, active way for the little ones to enjoy the holidays!
To start from December 21, 2020. May choose from: adults only, children only, or adults plus children together. Scroll down for details!
It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.
Modern adults are used to being told information – what, how, where, when, why.
This time, we invite you to experience the reverse. Discover your answer to the big questions by participating in group experiences and discussions!
The workshops will unpack deeper and deeper understandings in Anthroposophy.
You are encouraged to join either or both of the first two blocks before joining the last one, but it is not a must.

Children's holiday camp
We aim at providing a balanced experience of doing, feeling and thinking in a way that stimulates (unplugged!) fun, creativity and a sense of well-being. Each day will be a joyful journey through imaginative play, circle games, songs and stories.
For children with parents participating in the Adult Workshops, they will enjoy having fun with friends while being in close proximity to their loved ones!
Children aged 3 to 7 will enjoy a harmonious environment where rhythm and structure encourage opportunities for play and artistic activities. Older children from 8 to 11 will engage in more guided and focused activities that strengthens life skills and rewards them with a sense of accomplishment.
