Tea Ceremonies + 'Rashomon' Film Screening

Lindsey Stillwell (Zee) and Hannah Dupree are teaming up with Up Up Trampoline for an exquisite evening of Tea, Contemplation, and Connection.

Enjoy the tranquility of a traditional Japanese Tea Ceremony as well as a Taiwanese Tea Ceremony. Move through the space, connecting with Self and Others through both methods of tea brewing, taking time to sit in our altar space and contemplate as well. 

This will be a free-flowing event -- allowing you to share in both ceremonies, as well as taking time for stillness and connection. Arrive anytime between 5-8 and share in the tea ceremonies. 
The film, Rashomon, will be shown directly after this. 

Akira Kurosawa’s Rashomon (1950) was one of the most daring films of its era. It recounts how a heinous crime was recalled from the different perspectives of a bandit, a samurai, the samurai’s wife, and a woodcutter, before ending on a stunning climax that questions the nature of humanity. Few films have terms named after them, but as ‘the Rashomon effect’ is now part of the common vernacular, it goes to show what a great impact was made by the multi-witness storytelling technique.
