Create your own Zen Rock Garden History,
Multicultural- Other,
Nature- Gardening
The Japanese rock garden (karesansui) or "dry landscape" garden, often called a Zen garden, creates a miniature stylized landscape through carefully composed arrangements of rocks, water features, moss, and uses gravel or sand that is raked to represent ripples in water. A Zen garden is usually relatively small, and is usually meant to be seen while seated from a single viewpoint such as the veranda of a temple or monastery. Classical zen gardens were intended to imitate the intimate essence of nature, not its actual appearance, and to serve as an aid to meditation about the true meaning of life. Participants will learn about all the features that go into creating their own garden at home, with photos of and directions on how to place the elements in proper spacing and design.
$201- $350
Cha no Yu Japanese Tea Ceremony History,
Multicultural- Other,
Performing Arts- Other
Cha-no-Yu is commonly translated as Japanese Tea Ceremony but the word(s) literally mean hot water for tea. The art of Cha-no-Yu is a synthesis of many Japanese arts with the focus of preparing and serving a bowl of tea with a calm mind, serene spirit, and pure heart. The tea master Sen Rikyu (1522-1591) developed Wabi-Cha or the style of tea that reflects a simple and quiet taste. It is this simple style of tea that is practiced and taught in Japan and throughout the world today. The principles of Kei Sei Wa Jaku (respect, purity, harmony, and tranquility) are the principles that practitioners of Cha-no-Yu integrate into their study of tea and into their daily lives. Sen Rikyu said that tea is nothing more than boiling water, making tea and drinking it. It is this simplicity that makes the study of Chanoyu a lifelong pursuit. Our Tea Ceremony workshop will include tea tasting (accompanied by traditional Japanese sweets) & a discussion of the history of the tea culture as well as the zen aesthetics which infuse the tea culture.
$201- $350
