Tea Ceremony of Chado (The Way of the Tea), is a traditional Japanese art involving ritualistic preparation of tea. Influenced by Zen Buddhism philosophy, the core teaching of chad is to attain a spiritual state of selflessness and peacefulness through making and sharing one bowl of tea. Learn the history and philosophy of the Japanese tea ceremony while tasting Japanese tea and sweets. This program is part of the celebration of the NEA Big Read project locally hosted by Gumberg Library at Duquesne University.
