“Everybody was kung fu hiking...
those trails were fast as lightning.
The climb was a little bit frightening.
But we succeeded with expert timing....”
Chapter 2 of the Heroes Series continues our exploration into the mountains of China. There will be great drama along this journey. Perhaps some swashbuckling may occur. Kung fu is always a possibility. There will definitely be moments of zen.
Join us as we visit Mt. Huashan in Xian and Song Mountain, the location of the famed Shaolin temple. Experience sites like the Terracotta Army, Big Wild Goose Pagoda. Wander ancient streets, zoom along on a bullet train, and see fantastic wonders that rival anything the imagination can produce.
In experiencing the past, we can learn truths that have been passed down for generations. In the future, we have the ability to set our own destiny. That means this present moment has more power in it than we often realize. That power can change the world.
