I've got an opportunity to speak about tea ceremony and its spiritual aspects on radio.
I met Paul about 4 years ago in our mutual friend's restaurant in Kyoto. He has visited Camellia taking his friends several times for tea ceremony and we found another thing in common. He was one of the English teachers while I was a student at an English school in Osaka! And my teacher at that time is his best friend! What a co-incident. After almost 20 years later, we finally met in Kyoto.
He struggled with his habit of drinking and he got over it by his spiritual method. I also had some difficult time in my life and got over it by devoting myself with tea ceremony. Now Paul works as a life-coach and a spiritual instructor.
I hope you enjoy listening to it :)
