"Cha-no-Yu, Way of Tea,” is a living art originating in 16th century Japan. The four principles of the Tea Ceremony are Harmony, Respect, Purity and Tranquility. It synthesizes the elegant arts of kimono, flower arrangement, calligraphy and pottery into a philosophy and way of life. Following the popularity of previous years’ Tea Ceremonies, Mio Shapley, master of the Tea Ceremony, along with Rumi McIntyre and Shamisen player Hiromi Moffat, warmly invites you to share a cup of peace and simplicity.
