Japanese Tea Ceremony


Tea Ceremony - The Way of Tea

Translated as the "Way of Tea", Chado, or Japanese tea ceremony ,is an icon of traditional Japanese culture. The spirit of Wa Kei Sei Jaku, (harmony, respect, purity and tranquility) are the basic principles underlying Chado. A tea ceremony brings together many important aspects of Japanese culture and values including flower arrangement, calligraphy, poetry and the pursuit of harmonious interaction. In this class, students will learn the basic procedures for making tea as well as how to integrate the spirit of tea into their study and daily lives.

For people who have previously taken any JCCC Chado course.

Class instructions will be adapted to the level of experience of students.
