If you consider Chinese culture, there is a connection to the spiritual world integrated in many everyday practices. Feng Shui and I Ching, for example, speak to the powerful belief in symbols and ideas that intermediate between man and the larger universe. Los Angeles Chinatown is replete with locations and references that call forth this aspect of Chinese life. Join Chinatown tour guide Helen Hua to explore the incredible Taoist Thien Hau Temple, and art and commercial items used in the popular practices.
More information from Helen Hua:The tour will last one hour, so be sure to bring some water and wear comfortable shoes. It doesn't look like it'll happen, but if it rains, the tour will be canceled. A light drizzle is okay and we will continue with the tour, but please bring an umbrella. Please meet at 2pm next to the Dragon Gateway, which is on Broadway next to Cathay Manor at 600 North Broadway (the closest street is Cesar Chavez).
