Japanese Tea Ceremony Demonstration

May is Asian Heritage month. Join members of the Urasenke Tankokai Victoria Association as they demonstrate the Japanese tea ceremony (Chado- The Way of Tea). Urasenke has long been active in promoting worldwide understanding and appreciation of chado. The four principles of chado are Wa (Harmony), Kei (Respect), Sei (Purity), and Jaku (tranquility). Chado, also known as chanoyu and commonly referred to as the Japanese Tea Ceremony in English, is a spiritual and aesthetic discipline for refinement of the self known in Japanese as a 'way'. The word 'chado' means "the way of tea". Visitors are invited to observe the ceremony taking place on the main floor of the museum in the Conference Hall.
