Rare Tea Ceremony in the Hall of Compassion

April 20 @ 10:30 am - 3:00 pm

Saturday, April 20

10:30am, 12:00pm and 1:30pm

Hall of Compassion Lawai International Center

All are welcome to experience a day in the ancient tradition of Japanese tea ceremony presented by the Urasenke Kaua’i Kyoukai tea association at the Lawai International Center.

This rare opportunity is being held in the Hall of Compassion, a hand carved structure true to 13th – century architecture built with the hands and hearts of masters from Asia and volunteers from Kaua’i.

Soothing shakuhachi (ancient Japanese flute) music by Kyle Chew opens each session.  As the tea ceremony members mature with each season, this could be one of the last sessions offered to the community.

Due to the limit of 25 seats per session, reservations are required.

There is a suggested minimum donation of $40 which includes lunch.

CLICK HERE to donate online and register.

For reservations text or call (808) 639-5952 or email paradisekauai@yahoo.com.

The Lawai International Center is a nonprofit, nondenominational community project driven by its volunteers, whose earnest efforts are bringing the valley back to prominence as an international center of compassion, education and cultural understanding.
