香道,內在合ㄧ之道Incense ceremony integrates the inner and outer world.


宇宙內所有現象和事物均存在著陰陽兩種不同的現象,如:晝/夜、男/女、動/靜、高/低、長/短、生/死、虛/實、天/地……萬事萬物就在這兩股動能中相互交替運作,生生不息。由此所啟發的哲學思維,則是追求陰陽平衡、相互尊重、彼此包容、剛柔並濟的和諧生活,以開啟更高的智慧,達到天人合一的圓滿境界  古人說「器以載道」,「器」是一種物質性的創作或形式的展現。因此,若以「器」的角度來看,香道是美的形式與文化內涵的載體,透過美感經驗與專注覺察的精神修練,其最主要的目的,是回歸內在陰陽和諧的極之「道」。

天然香手作推廣---中華香道藝術文化協會 Association of Chinese Incense Ceremony has been devoted to promoting the hand-made natural incense to make your life even better!

香,可以豐富生活,陶冶性情;是千年來人們生活中永遠的心靈之友。中國傳統用香,是將炮製後的藥材磨成粉末來熏香,因此最初用香形式以粉末為主。

It is believed that incense can enrich our lives and transform our characters. Incense has been a great and vital companion to many people for thousands of years. Traditionally, Chinese process medicinal herbs and smoke the ground herbs. Therefore, incense was commonly used in the form of powder in the very beginning.

香‧靜心‧環境的善循環 The benign cycle of incense, meditation, and our environment

      近幾十年來,我們的居住環境逐漸受到破壞,人們在各種污染與工作壓力下,心情容易浮躁、焦慮、不安、暴戾,這些負向能量以肉眼看不到的方式,影響居住環境與身心健康。有些負向能量來自家中,例如有長期生病的人,家裡就會有病氣;家人情感不和,就會有暴力的能量;東西堆積太多未清理,能量就無法順暢流動。這些外在因素也會讓人煩躁不舒服,甚至生病。
In the recent decades, our living environment has been gradually destroyed. People are easy to be fretful anxious, restless, or upset since we live with all sorts of pollution and fight against all sources of pressure, and such negative but invisible atmosphere seriously affects our physical and mental health and even our living environment. Some negative energy comes from households, where some family members are severely ill. Some comes from those living in disharmony. If bad or negative energy is not neutralized, then people can feel restless or fall ill.

香,內在的覺旅 Incense, an awakening vehicle

自古以來,人們就很喜歡香氣,會用香來妝點生活、增加情趣;香也作為上達天聽的祭祀載體,具有宗教的崇高性。西方人喜歡用香水來表現個人魅力,但對華夏香文化而言,香則是內在的修為與人格象徵。

Since ancient times, people have been enjoying fragrance, with which they add something delightful to their life. Incense is also considered a vehicle, with which people convey their thoughts to heaven, and thus incense carries a religious meaning. In western countries, people like to show their individuality through perfume; yet to eastern people, incense can be a token of inner cultivation or a particular personality.

近年來,整個地球、社會環境的意識混亂,無論是環境、氣候、生態都已遭受嚴重破壞,戰爭、經濟、貧窮、人心疏離……人們承受嚴重的精神壓力,心靈空虛、感受不到愛、對生命絕望,因此憂鬱症、癌症、慢性疾病都已成為人類最迫切需要解決的問題。
In recent years, our world is experiencing unprecedented chaos in terms of the collective consciousness or the living environment. Moreover, the endless wars, financial recession, poverty, and segregation among human beings all impose severe burdens on our psychology. And thus, many of us tend to feel despaired, empty, and hopeless, suffering from depression or other chronic diseases, which has become an urgent issue that we have to cope with immediately.
