The Japan-America Society of Pennsylvania will present Yuko Eguchi and "Cultivating Peace through the Way of Tea" on January 30, part of its 2020 Japan Lecture Series.

Tea ceremony, or Chado (The Way of Tea), is a traditional Japanese art involving the ritualistic preparation of tea. Influenced by the philosophy of Zen Buddhism, the core teaching of chado is to attain a spiritual state of selflessness

and peacefulness through making and sharing tea. Join us to learn the history and philosophy of Japanese tea ceremony while tasting Japanese tea and sweets.

Join the JASP for this free evening at the Ace Hotel on January 30, 2020. Light hors d’oeuvres and beverages will be provided.

She received her tea master title and name, Soyu, in 2009 and the associate professor of tea title in 2013, certified by the head master of the Urasenke school. Yuko currently teaches Japanese music history at Pitt. She has performed and lectured on Japanese traditional arts at various higher institutions. Visit her website: www.yukoeguchi.com
