With its unique geographic conditions, Chinese civilization was developed independent of other cultural influence. In addition, Chinese culture heavily influenced its neighboring countries and regions. It is therefore hard for a western person to understand some of the values and beliefs that Chinese people hold.
In this presentation, a vivid way of exploring Chinese culture will be shared through storytelling. These ancient stories are not only very interesting, but exemplify the essence of Chinese beliefs that are carried today. Discussions will be held for comparisons of the East and West. The goal is to help participants better understand this ancient civilization and promote harmony in our local multicultural organizations and communities.
