Spring brought a fresh scent and a breeze of light to the Shoseian Teahouse on May 11, 2013. A joint event with the hard-working staff of the City of Glendale proved to be a joyful occassion for all in attendance.
Traditional Japanese music and dance delighted our eyes and ears, and set the tone for a beautiful outdoor demonstration of Chanoyu, the Tea ceremony.
Many were in attendance for the tea ceremony demonstration. We received several new members, as well as wonderful donations for the renovation of Shoseian Tea House!
“I have toured the world with the goal, ‘peace through sharing a bowl of
tea.’ Taking a bowl of green tea in your hands and drinking it, you feel
one with nature, and there is peace. This peace can be spread by
offering a bowl of tea to another. I hope you will drink and share this
peace with me.”
