Here we explore the medicine of Tea as plant teacher; the spirit of Nature itself manifested through this Leaf, awakened by hot water. This ceremony is a dance between the elements, a sensory exploration of presence, where everything is connected by space. In this Introduction to Cha Dao, "The Way of Tea" we will begin by sharing Tea in silence, the space will then be opened for dialogue surrounding the practice of Tea ceremony; reflections, questions, and sharing. Duration is 3 hours.
“Tea meets us exactly where we are and gives exactly what is needed. She is a graceful, strong, compassionate teacher. She shows us a doorway, opens it, but gives one the choice to stand wherever one feels comfortable. Every ceremony is completely unique unto itself and deeply moving. I feel so blessed to serve and witness others find in their bowls the same magic that continues to inspire me. I am a student of the Leaf.”
