In the Year of the Dragon, we can begin to fully experience the essential nature of balance and stability in Chinese medicine. According to the Zodiac system, this year will be quite a volatile one, representing an upward surge of energy, that when harnessed will naturally align with growth, insight, creativity, and expansion. Join us to learn about traditional philosophies of health and wellbeing, everything from acupuncture treatments, diet, exercise, to understanding your attitude to life to help you reap the benefits of the Dragon Year.
The day will include:
Chinese Cookery Workshop with Guo Yue
Learn to make special Chinese pancakes with fillings of aromatic duck; long-life glass noodles; pork with a special dipping sauce and a Woodland dish with crispy egg, bamboo and lily-flower. Then try your delicious creation at lunchtime.
