The Tea Ceremony is the heart of Japanese culture. Zen Master Sen no Rikyu (1522-1591) is the founder of Senke tea schools and his philosophy of the way of tea is: Harmony, Respect, Purity and Tranquillity. Mio Shudo, an Edinburgh based Urasenke Japanese Tea Master will give a talk on the history, relevance and impact of the tea ceremony on Japanese culture aided by an illustrated powerpoint presentation and a short video.
Following the presentation there will be time for a Q&A with Mio Shudo.
