Studying Cha-do amplifies the ability for people to respond with composure to any situation. Cha- do opens the heart and clears the mind, providing the opportunity to harmonize with people and the surrounding world. The basic principles of Cha-do are Harmony, Respect, Purity and Tranquility. The Tea Ceremony is very beautiful in its own right, i.e.  the movements of the body and the hand-made objects used in performing the ceremony. Tea is meant to be a pleasure for the guests and the Host as well; It is a form of communication between them. I invite you to explore my Web Site and learn about the History  of the Ceremony and the tools used to  ‘SIT AND MAKE TEA’.
Cha-do (the way of tea) was developed, in its present form, in Japan during the 15th century by Sen No Rikyu - the first head master of the Urasenke School of Tea. Since then, it is a discipline that has been nurtured and refined by 16 head masters. Ever fresh and vital, it attracts people of all life styles who find it a way to practice their different philosophies and attitudes toward life.
