Japanese Tea Ceremony
as an Act of Service
at The Floating World
The graceful art of the Japanese Tea Ceremony, known as Chado - the Way of Tea - has been practiced in Japan for over 400 years. Heavily steeped in the philosophy of Zen Buddhism, it raises the humble act of preparing tea to a spiritually powerful gift of service. This class will be a lecture on the history and significance of Chado and a demonstration of the basic Tea Ceremony in the Urasenke Tradition, with an emphasis on its application as an act of service.
