A Japanese tea ceremony is a tradition in which tea drinking has been elevated to a true art form. The ceremony is not just about drinking the tea, but the whole process: the beauty of the ritual; preparing and drinking the tea as mindfully and consciously as possible from the heart. It is an exercise in being here and now.
During the tea ceremony, one gives attention and time to oneself to shake off stress. This opportunity brings each together and shares time and space in a contemplative way - dialogue in silence.
