Meditative Tea Ceremony Groups
As you enter the meditation space, dim lights and the smell of candles or incense greets you, inviting a sense of calm and reverence. Cushions line the floor in a cosy semi circle around a simply decorated tea serving space. The sound of water gently beginning to boil might reach your ears, as you find your place around the tea bowls.
Group tea ceremonies are a time to gather in a place of mindfulness, slowing down, and bringing attention from the busyness of our external lives to the stillness of our interior selves. I guide the group through a slow and gentle mindfulness practice, while serving tea to each person in a method that has been taught to me by my Tea Master. Sessions may include readings from her Tea Master's books (on topics of Cha Dao, Tea + Art, Spirituality, etc).
What you receive:
- Space and time for stillness and quiet away from the busyness of life
- Connection to Self, Spirit and a Community of others
- Practical tips for incorporating a mindfulness practice into your everyday life
- Introduction to an ancient tradition and spiritual teachings
Duration: 1.5 hrs
Participants: Everyone is welcome, group capacity is 15 people
Exchange: $30 per person ($25conc), $45 for 2 guests

For centuries Tea has been sought after and consumed as a calming beverage, but for thousands of years before Tea reached the Western world, it was recognised as one of the oldest plant medicines. Today, it is the second most consumed beverage, after water. Tea ceremony is not only an ancient artform, but is a gateway into bringing balance and stillness to body, mind and spirit. It is a way of drinking Tea in an intentional, mindful method that has been passed down for thousands of years in many traditions across Asia. This ceremony is a dance between the elements, a sensory exploration of presence, where everything is connected by space. Tea meets us exactly where we are and gives us exactly what is needed. She is a graceful, strong, compassionate teacher. She shows us a doorway, opens it, but gives one the chance to stand wherever one feels comfortable.
