    Chanoyu (Chado), or the Way of Tea, is a spiritual practice formalized by Sen no Rikyu in the 16th century. You will learn about the Way of Tea from an introductory lecture, watch a demonstration, and enjoy a bowl of matcha (green powder tea) with some Japanese confections. This experience will sooth the mind with each methodic step.

    Each event will be conducted by Junko Ikeda, Urasenke Tea Instructor, in a private residence’s chashitsu (Japanese tearoom). We have two locations: St. Charles and University City. Directions to the event will be emailed after payment is confirmed.

    6 seats are available per event and are sold on a First Come, First Served basis. All sales are final.

    Ikebana (生け花) is the Japanese art of flower arrangement that dates back to the 15th century.  Ikebana emphasizes natural beauty of flower materials including the stems and leaves as well as the shapes, lines, and forms.  It expresses the beauty of flower materials using an asymmetric composition, empty space, and the principle of minimalism. Ikebana is also known as “kado” (華道) (the way of flowers), involving the spiritual practice of understanding nature, tranquility, harmony between all living things and oneself.

    Each workshop introduces you to a different style of flower arrangement. This workshop will cover Freestyle. Beginners are welcome. Workshops are held at the instructor's home in U-City (address and directions are emailed upon payment confirmation). Larger workshops are held in SSB 331 at UMSL.

    Prices include flowers.
