Taiwan: Confucius Culture Weekend

.

This weekend, I’ve enrolled myself into a World Youth Confucius Camp Culture weekend, to learn a little about Eastern philosophy and religion in Taiwan. Besides learning about the life and times of Confucius himself, we explore the culture that springs up around philosophical thinking: the culture of Confucianism that is prevalent in the Eastern hemisphere from learning about the architectural and decorative construction involved in Taipei’s temples, observing modern and contextual Confucian rites, to lessons on deciphering his readings, acting them and  in the modern day context.

The weekend camp runs in the early summer of each year, and is free to successful applications, so definitely check out their facebook page for details here. Besides being a fantastic introduction to Eastern philosophy, the camp gives an, albeit brief, tour overview of Taiwanese history.

Great trip!
