What is “ichigo ichie”?

A once-in-a-lifetime chance. Just once in an entire lifetime. Thinking that there is just one time in one’s entire life and dedicating one’s intention to that. It was originally a phrase used to express the principle of tea ceremonies and that, with the understanding that every tea ceremony only occurs once, both the host and the guests should be completely sincere.
