    Instructor: Kyoko Wada, Tea Master. The ancient art of Japanese Tea Ceremony, or Chado, branches out from the root philosophy and aesthetic of Zen and was refined and made orthodox by tea master Sen Rikyu (1522-1591). When properly performed, the ancient ceremony's beauty is heightened by the foundational principals of harmony, respect, purity, and tranquility. Following a strict rule of eloquence and etiquette, the practitioner of the ceremony is able to transform something as seemingly common as preparing and serving a cup of tea into an unique experience of precision, grace, and beauty. This evening we invite you to learn about and witness first-hand this ancient Japanese art as a local tea master graces us with her knowledge and experience of practicing the preparation and presentation of Chado.
