 Chado: the Way of Tea is one of the Japanese ways of training (do) and is centuries old. It includes almost every aspect of our daily lives and teaches us how to live in an artistic balance with fellow human beings and nature. The culmination of a tea person's training is the daily ability to live intuitively and to creatively see the harmony between things (people as well as objects) and the timing of events. The practical demonstration of a tea person's training allows one to be a host or guest of a chaji, which is the laying of charcoal to heat water, a meal which is most often seven courses, and two types of tea and sweets. This Whatcom READS! public demonstration provides a little glimpse into the history and practice of the Way of Tea and is sponsored by The Japan Foundation.
