Our Austin Education Committee were honored to welcome Dr Sheila Fling to present to our membership the Way of Tea. We bring this one-of-a-kind experience to USBG members who are interested in learning other culture’s expressions of hospitality.
Dr. Fling has made the Way of Tea a way of life. She has 13 licenses & three teaching certificates in tea ceremony from the Urasenke Foundation in Kyoto, in addition to her advanced degrees in psychology, decades of study including years of living in Japan as well as hosting Japanese artists and intellectuals in the US and lecturing at universities and other organizations. We appreciate the chance to tap into the deep well of her knowledge.
