Be Kind to Yourself / Japanese Tea Ceremony

The Japanese tea ceremony was conducted in an intimate setting where only 2 guests were invited (per session) into the room I have curated with care. The purpose was to bring their senses into focus, so they could be wholly present to experience this ritual with pleasure. The tea ceremony was intended to honour simplicity and silence. This experience can be repeated in real life by merely slowing down our pace. That, in the sense, is being kind to ourselves. The performance was limited to max. 8 guests.

In collaboration with Martin A. Ciesielski for ´The School of Nothing´

Performed at Now, Zentrum für Achtsamkeit, Tickstraße 8, 10115 Berlin
