Japanese Arts Center, Ryu Shu Kan Cha no Yu Japanese Tea Ceremony History,
Multicultural- Other,
Performing Arts- Other
Cha-no-Yu is commonly translated as Japanese Tea Ceremony but the word(s) literally mean hot water for tea. The art of Cha-no-Yu is a synthesis of many Japanese arts with the focus of preparing and serving a bowl of tea with a calm mind, serene spirit, and pure heart. The tea master Sen Rikyu (1522-1591) developed Wabi-Cha or the style of tea that reflects a simple and quiet taste. It is this simple style of tea that is practiced and taught in Japan and throughout the world today. The principles of Kei Sei Wa Jaku (respect, purity, harmony, and tranquility) are the principles that practitioners of Cha-no-Yu integrate into their study of tea and into their daily lives. Sen Rikyu said that tea is nothing more than boiling water, making tea and drinking it. It is this simplicity that makes the study of Chanoyu a lifelong pursuit. Our Tea Ceremony workshop will include tea tasting (accompanied by traditional Japanese sweets) & a discussion of the history of the tea culture as well as the zen aesthetics which infuse the tea culture.
