Thursday June 8, 2017 ... 7 to 9 PM
Enjoy tea with us during the final full moon of spring! One World Wellness is pleased to host a Japanese Tea Ceremony workshop with Keiko Ishibe, a teacher from a very traditional style of Japanese tea (Omotesenke). There will be a demonstration of a tea ceremony with samples of a powdered green tea and a sweet for guests. (Herbal tea will also be available.)
A display of Japanese flower arrangement (Ikebana) and a calligraphy scroll made by Ms. Ishibe will be on display to discuss the significance of art as part of the tea ceremony. Keiko Ishibe has been practicing Japanese calligraphy, or shodo, since the age of 6 and is ranked 7th dan in the Yugensha School. She also has a professional license to teach Japanese tea ceremony of the Omotesenke School and Japanese flower arrangement of the Ikenobou school.
The evening's theme is the full moon in spring, and weather permitting, will be held on the patio of One World Wellness' Asian-style tea garden. Before the tea ceremony, guests are invited to view a presentation on the culture and history of the tea ceremony in Japan.
