Hong Kong, Macau and Guangdong: Quest for Harmony (Adventures With Purpose)
Hong Kong, Macau and Guangdong: three pearls in one exquisite setting. Each is distinct yet they are bound together by a cultural veneration of harmony. According to Richard, “Just as a wick needs a flame, some of us can’t live without exploring our existence, and I inevitably find myself turning to the East and the wisdom of the Ancients.” So once again, Richard is pulled back to China and the Pearl River Delta in search of the roots of the human desire for harmony.
Today we see this fundamental value represented in so many different ways. In this trilogy of spaces Richard looks at how the people of the Pearl River Delta seek harmony in this age.
In Hong Kong we’ll discover how the rounded shoulders of tradition find poise and meaning with the new and modern. In Macau we’ll explore how western sensibilities integrate with eastern aesthetics. And in Guangdong we’ll look at how some today are rediscovering ancient attitudes about integrating human workings with the natural world.
