Join us for a simple gathering of Tea Ceremony as we share bowls of silence together in community. A time of connection to the plant Spirit + plant teacher of Tea.
Cha Dao translates to the "Way of Tea". It is a practice that comes from ancient Chinese lineage that has been used by sages as a form of medicine and a way to cultivate awakened presence. Although traditional Tea Ceremony has roots in Daoist & Zen philosophy, it is non-dogmatic and available to all.
Tea Ceremony is about creating a space of reverence for the plant teacher, plant medicine, and plant spirit of Tea. When we show up for Tea, she shows up for us. As we open ourselves to her magic she begins to heal us on a multitude of levels. She is gentle, warm & inviting as she works with your Chi (energy) and unlocks the wisdom of your heart. Every sit with Tea is an opportunity for deep healing, deep connection and deep presence as she meets you exactly where are and gives you just what you need. It is a truly profound sensory exploration of the 5 elements. As the heat from the hot water unfurls and unlocks the wisdom of the Tea leaf, the steam rises letting go of all that needs to be released. The smell of the Tea leaves dance around you as you bring the medicine to your lips. The taste, like a healing river, flows into your body. You no longer know where Tea ends and you begin. Together as one, you connect, you heal and you remember. A practice of both personal ceremony and/or communal ritual that is much needed in our world today.
