SCWS2017 at Miraikan, Tokyo

Tranquilitea conducted sessions of Japanese tea ceremony experience for the Science Center World Summit 2017,  Nov 15th – 17th, hosted by the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation, Miraikan. It was our honor to have numbers of participants, including astronauts, scientists, professors and sponsors, to experience our traditional culture which let us feel the genuine mindfulness. To balance Science with Culture for the sustainable future was one of the main topic of the summit. It was our privilege to receive compliments from many guests who enjoyed our presentation of the tea tradition and the experience on the tatami mat, inspired by the four spirits – 和敬清寂(wa-kei-sei-jaku), meaning Harmony, Respect, Purity and Tranquilitey.
