The Way of Incense: Koh-Do by Shoyeido Incense Company Japan

Monday, October 1, 6:30 pm
UMass Old Chapel

 

As an important cultural tradition in Japan, Koh-do (incense ceremony) is similar to Chanoyu (tea ceremony) and Ikebana (flower arranging). While the formal Koh-do ceremony is steeped in protocol and tradition, the main idea is to calm the mind, learn to listen to incense, and “communicate with the transcendent.”
This event is recommended for Youth aged 14 years or older.

General Admission: $20; Five College Students and Youth 14 to 17 years old: $10
