You will learn first-hand about the practice of Food as Medicine, attend cooking classes, taste fantastic Asian recipes, meet local teachers and visit ancient Taoist and Buddhist temples.

Join us on an adventure of a lifetime! Beginning this September 6th, 2019, we will meet in Hong Kong to begin our journey, to immerse ourselves into the study of health and longevity, and enjoy the company and congeniality of an international group of people focused on balance and harmony in our life journey.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take but by the places and moments that take our breath away.

Your sponsor, Roger Green has had the great fortune to travel to China on many occasionsand has previously organized several study tours. This time it is special – we are joined by Taoist teacher and ordained priest, Nam Singh from San Francisco, who like Roger, has taught Food as Medicine and Taoist Herbs of Longevity for many decades.

Nam Singh had a special childhood and upbringing. Every summer from an early age, he spent in a Taiwanese monastery studying all of the Taoist arts, including cooking, healing foods and herbs, qigong, acupuncture, feng shui and mediation. Later he applied this knowledge as one of the pioneers in TCM and natural medicine in California. For many years in the Academy Healing Nutrition training program, Nam Singh would play a video made in the 1980’s of a very old Taoist temple located in the Chengdu mountains called Qingyanggong where they still serve “Food as Medicine’ and herbal remedies gathered from the surrounding mountains. Each year, our Academy Healing students would proclaim- “when are you going to organize a tour to this most amazing magical and important historical Taoist temple/monastery!”

Well folks, finally that time has arrived. Beginning in Hong Kong with an arrival date of 6th September – the Magical mystery tour begins. It is open to all to join in, especially if you have a keen interest in Traditional Chinese Medicine and the Taoist arts of longevity.

We expect it to be very popular with our students- so make sure you get that deposit placed quick before it gets booked out!
