Founded in spring 2011, Cambridge Chinese Classics Society seeks to study, practice and promote traditional Chinese classics within Cambridge and beyond. Members come from a multiplicity of backgrounds in the arts, humanities, sciences and engineering.

We organise weekly reading sessions in Chinese and fortnightly sessions in English. Recent texts studied include the Confucian Analects and the Mengzi etc. Members volunteer to lead the sessions, and the atmosphere is informal so as to encourage open thought and discussion. We enjoy having the company of people from various disciplines and backgrounds and gaining new perspectives on the ancient texts.

Aside from reading groups, we regularly organise educational and cultural activities such as public talks, traditional Chinese tea ceremonies and tea yoga in order to appreciate various aspects of traditional Chinese culture. Whether you are a keen reader of Chinese classics or just want to find out more about traditional Chinese culture, you are most welcome to join.
