Signup no longer available. Please contact the coordinator directly.

Flickering red candles in darkened doorways, women beating shoes on the ground under busy flyovers, coins scattered on the ground on funeral routes and numerous seemingly inexplicable aspects of local life – Hong Kong has one of the most significant – and superficially obvious – survivals of animistic beliefs within a post – industrialized society in the world. In this lecture we will explore numerous commonly encountered ritual observances and clarify many of those “what that was about” questions you have probably asked yourself many times. This a great talk for those new to Hong Kong and those who have been here a while.
