The preparation and sharing of tea has been ritualized throughout the world, though all major traditions share the values of respect, tranquility, and purity, among others. Just as one might use sound or movement as a focus for contemplation, tea facilitates physical awareness, stillness, and community. Guests will gather and enjoy tea in silence, with instruction in tea ceremony and The Way of Tea to follow.
Tea ceremony is an easily adaptable enrichment to daily life, and an excellent starter point for people who seek more mindfulness in everyday rituals. Guests will enjoy a meditative community experience, while learning skills and insights that can deepen their own contemplative practice and their appreciation of tea's rich history as plant medicine.
