Zen and Chanoyu
Sunday, Feb 8, 1-4 pm
Nikkei Centre, 6688 Southoaks Crescent Burnaby BC V5E 4M7
In the late 12th century, the Zen monk Myoan Eisai brought tea plants and the tradition of tea drinking to Japan from China. In the centuries that followed, Zen was profoundly connected to the development of chanoyu as a cultural practice. Still today, Zen principles are central to the practice of tea at every level. The February workshop will explore the historical, philosophical, and aesthetic influences of Zen on the development and practice of chanoyu through a slide lecture followed by tea and sweets served in the Nikkei Centre's tatami room.
