The First Tea of the New Year

2021 is the Year of the Ox, the second sign of the zodiac.


The New Year will be welcomed quietly this year with a Zoom gathering for students of the Foundation. We hope that conditions will permit us to gather in the tearoom once again next year.

DATE: Sunday, January 24
TIME: 1 p.m.
RSVP: Open to full-time students of the Foundation. Reservations are necessary.



Educational Gatherings

The Foundation welcomes school groups (kindergarten through university) and other groups for lecture-presentations at its tearoom facilities. These occasions are individually designed to the interests of each group such as language, literature, aesthetics, philosophy, or history. Please telephone 415.433.6553 to make arrangements.
