"tea ceremony 2" - performance 2000; Parque da Cidade, São José dos Campos-SP, Brazil; 2000

A ritual in park to welcome new life

Community, nature and divine support; strength, courage, insight

Celebrating new life, life ceremony, a prayer

A different look at Chá de bebê

Ceramic eggs placed in spiral, inner scape of uterus

Earth, water, fire and air

Breaking the egg for the tea to be served

A shell housing the taste of new life

The everchanging phenomena, life-death cycle

wabi-cha, sensing fragility in life, listening to impermanence

A new view of Tea Ceremony
