  4. In a cube with no walls, Tea master Adam Wojcinski and Zen monk Seikan Čech conducted a non-stop Tea Ceremony x Zen Sesshin for 24 hours. The event took place from 6pm Monday 4 November until 6pm Tuesday 5 November 2013, at the Blender Lane Studios in Melbourne Australia, and was documented in its entirety by photographer Ryo Yamauchi.

    People from all walks of life participated in this long-duration artwork simply by entering into the cube and sharing in Tea x Zen. For the entire 24 hours, Adam and Seikan's only sustenance was tea and water and there was no talking. Through this event, Adam and Seikan examined human encounters; explored completeness and change; and embodied the mind of Zen and Tea as being one and the same.

    Adam, Seikan and Ryo express their gratitude to all who participated and gave support in co-creating this unique and wonderful event. Thank you.

    Sincerely,
    Adam, Seikan and Ryo

  5. The instructions for guests are:
    1. Please sit in the cube

    If you wish, please make a donation.

    All donations collected helped fund my artist residency in Iceland.

    'Takuhatsu' literally means 'relying on the bowl' and refers to the buddhist practice of begging for alms.

    I am choosing to beg as a 'tea komusō'. Komusō 虚無僧 = ‘monk of nothingness’.

    Komusō are monks characterised by the straw basket worn on the head, representing the absence of a specific ego. Their Zen practice is to wander about playing solo pieces on the shakuhachi (bamboo flute) while begging for money and food.

    Instead of shakuhachi, blowing zen, I am practicing tea which is everyday, living zen.

    Each Wednesday night at Blenders Lane Artists Market I set up quiet space for tea framed by two cubes; one for me and one for anyone who cared to partake of tea and delight in silence and reflect on their buddha nature.
