Tea Ceremony is a Zen-based meditation practice called Cha Dao, or The Way of Tea. It comes from an ancient Chinese lineage, but the real story of tea is said to be a silent one; this being the experience as we sit, the listening and Being, the becoming more of a student, the filling yourself with emptying and learning to bow with grace and humility. We will sit, sip, surrender and purify in the presence of the natural world, tasted and taken in through the great Spirits of Tea. In this ceremony, you will be seated on the floor for the full hour with the use of cushions or blankets for comfort. Dress accordingly and bring any additional props you may like to have such as your personal meditation cushion. You may prefer to eat beforehand depending on your sensitivity to caffeine. The special tea shared will be uplifting, clarifying, and grounding all in one.
