Need a bit of calm in the holiday rush? Join us online for an introduction to the quintessential Japanese art of tea ceremony, known in Japanese as "Chanoyu," presented in collaboration with the Japanese Culture Center of Chicago. Chanoyu is a tradition that dates back hundreds of years, is renowned for its graceful steps and refined aesthetics, and admired the world over for inspiring serenity by the appreciation of simple tasks. (It also results in a good cup of tea) No previous knowledge or experience with the practice is necessary.
Brought to you by the Asian American and Pacific Islander Committee and the Social Sciences & History Department at the Harold Washington Library Center.
