Third Shaolin Cultural Festival


News Thumb Coming to London Soccer Dome this October 11th and 12th, after its huge success in Berlin (2012) and Los Angeles (2013), the 3rd Shaolin Cultural Festival, combined with the Chinese Zodiac & Treasure Exhibition promises to bring people of all nations together in celebration of peace and wellbeing.

Events will include lectures on Zen, life and Shaolin practices, martial arts competitions and fighting skills presentations, an exhibition on Chinese culture and Chinese Zodiac, a meditation, medicine and tea & incense ceremony experience. It is a great opportunity for anyone interested in learning more about the Chinese culture and heritage, more specifically Shaolin.

The Venerable Grand Master himself, Shi Yongxin, Abbot of the Songshan Shaolin Temple is scheduled to open the festival and give his blessing to all the guests. The Shaolin monks hope to spread their simple philosophy: have kind thoughts, speak kind words and do good deeds to everyone. We would like to invite all to join this peaceful celebration of mind and body practice.

Chua Boon Kee - Sculpture Masterclass at Asia House


News Thumb Free Masterclass at Asia House with renowned Singaporean sculptor, Chua Boon Kee, on Monday 15 September, 6.45pm. The artist won the CAS 'SUSTAIN' international sculpture commission with his piece "Flowing", after a global search that involved 24 international curators and expressions of interest from 49 East Asian artists in 14 different countries and diasporas. The brief was to create a piece that captured East Asian philosophy towards sustainable development.

The commission is generously sponsored by Shaftesbury PLC.

Four finalists were shortlisted: Beili Liu (USA / China), Yodogawa Technique (Japan), Isabel & Alfredo Aquilizan (Australia / Philippines) and Chua Boon Kee (Singapore). After public consultation and much deliberation by the CAS Selection Panel, the tender was awarded to Chua Boon Kee. The artist has flown into London for the Masterclass, media interviews and the eagerly anticipated unveiling on 18 September 2014 in Chinatown.

Come and meet him in person! Reserve your free tickets for the Masterclass here:

feral Choir of the Peoples March!


News Thumb Finally, as part of the march we are hoping to get everyone singing a set of melodies/chants that Phil Minton (http://www.philminton.co.uk/feral-choir/) and myself have been working on, with the help of writer LI Yan. Running what Phil would call a Feral Choir, we will need volunteers to form a kind of core that can be a focal point during the march when we get everyone singing. We will also need to record a version for us to send out for people to learn in advance of the march. So any groups of vocalists, or enthusiasts are welcome to also be involved in this manner.
