JAPANESE PHILOSOPHY - ZANSHIN

 – Zanshin; essential to age-old Samurai, and practiced by modern day Tea Masters, zanshin is a mind that is calm, aware of surroundings and present in every moment.

Zanshin is an elevated expression of peak performance; one of focused detachment and effortless flow.

Embrace the ritual of the tea ceremony and the philosophy of zanshin. Be mindful in the moment, connecting fully with your surroundings when preparing your tea. By turning matcha preparation into a ritual, zanshin will transcend into your daily life.

ZANSHIN PHILOSOPHY - PAST

550 years ago, a strange sight on the battlefield – a teahouse, erected by the Samurai’s own tea masters. They knew the importance of facing battle with a focused and collected mind – after all, the wrong decision could mean not living to fight another day.  

ZANSHIN PHILOSOPHY - PRESENT

Watch them – the art of flow. Whether during tea ceremony, kendo, calligraphy or flower arranging, the modern master’s mind is still, yet totally immersed in every moment.
