Chado has become an essential part of my life since I began study two years ago. Struggling at the time to find my place on campus, I felt that the Chado Urasenke Tankokai Urbana-Champaign Association welcomed me with all their hearts. It is a sense of community that I will take with me and look to participate in wherever I go. It is a community built on the philosophies that guide tea.
