Moscow, Feb 17 (UNI) The first-ever Alchemy Fair has opened in Moscow's International Exhibition Centre Crocus Expo with its motto 'Quality as a Way of Life'.
The fair has nothing to do with making gold out of stones, but it focuses on some formulas for physical and emotional harmony to live longer stressing that alchemy is still much in demand in this age of highly sophisticated technology.
It offers numerous ways for people to enhance one's life style and learn to harmonise the mind, body and soul.
''In ancient times, alchemists were trying to convert quicksilver into gold, and we are trying to convert everyday life into a festival so that people could live a longer life,'' Alchemy Fair organiser AlexyVoronin told Russian TV channels.
The fair offers opportunity for people to reach harmony between physical power and mind, feeling the right connection with one's competitors, moving to the beats of traditional music.
While some guests at the Fair plunged into the 'alchemy of the body,' others preferred to master the 'alchemy of taste'. And those, who did not feel harmonised by alcoholic drinks, enjoyed genuine Chinese tea.
''Tea is a catalyst, which lets us change our common state of fuss, and convert into another state. This is real alchemy, the miraculous transformation,'' Alexander Kshennikov, a tea expert said.
