Ichi-go, ichi-e

"One life, one encounter - treasure every moment"

From the art of tea or sadō "the way of tea", ichi-go ichi-e is a concept derived from Zen Buddhism that reminds participants that each single tea meeting is unique and that each moment should be treasured.

So here begins my journey ....
