Tea ceremony is a space where we can settle into a quiet, grounded place inside ourselves. Where we can slow down, outside of the harried pace of day-to-day life, with the medicine of tea as our guide. She is a gentle teacher who meets us exactly where we are, asks nothing of us, and opens a door to awakened presence and a peaceful sense of connection. The centuries-old ritual of Cha Dao, or “the way of tea”, incorporates the elements of nature in a dance of fire, water, earth, and space. The ceremony is held in noble silence as we have the opportunity to mindfully tune into ourselves, our breath, our senses, and into the tea itself…slowing our minds, opening our hearts, and inspiring our spirits with a deeper connection to ourselves and to Nature.
