  2. Olympic Culture Day Tea Ceremony

    June 19, 2021, All Day @ Dupree Theater

    Leading up to this Summer’s Olympic games in Japan, and inspired by Irving’s own official Olympic Day Celebration which is set for June 25-26, Irving Arts Center will host a day of activities on June 19 which highlight Japanese culture.
    Chado (the Japanese “Way of Tea”) is based on the simple act of boiling water, making tea, and offering it to others. Served with a respectful heart and received with gratitude, a bowl of tea satisfies both the physical and spiritual thirst.
    Although much has been written about Chado’s meditative qualities, quiet aesthetic, graceful dignity, and importance in Japanese culture, written words fail to communicate its totality. Chado is an ultimately a personal experience, which leaves one with a profound feeling of well-being and harmony with others and nature.
