"Interviurile lui Matei Georgescu" @ TVH - On Chado with Gabriel Caciula sensei

On a rather rainy December day we have been invited by Mr. Matei Georgescu at his Television Show, called "Interviurile lui Matei Georgescu", at TVH. The television was situated right inside the building of an University in Bucharest, and it is actually that University's television. We have found out that Mr. Georgescu is a professor there, and also a psychoanalyst. Every week he has an interview, and discussions are always on some interesting cultural aspects.

That particular day he was interested in Chado and Chanoyu. Our meeting with him was quick and as smooth as possible. Just one phone call from him and there we were, making and drinking tea together.

First of all I have to say I am happy to realize that Chanoyu has gained enough visibility in Romania for people to become curious about it and to have TV shows about it. It is an endless subject for discussion, for Chado/ Chanoyu are the essence of the Japanese Culture.

We have presented Chanoyu and Chado in so many places and in so many different ways, that I hope the Romanian public can see this philosophy and practice in a larger perspective now.

Here is the link to this TV show, were Gabriel Caciula Soga sensei speacks about Tea Ceremony with Mr Matei Georgescu and prepares a cup of tea for both our host and myself.
