Why tea and meditation?
Perhaps this quote from The Book of Tea says it all...
"In the liquid amber within the ivory-porcelain, the initiated may touch the sweet reticence of Confucius, the piquancy of Lao Tse, and the ethereal aroma of Sakyamuni himself” - Kazuko Okakura, The Book of Tea
In the Quiet Medicine workshop - run by James Thirlwall discussions of antioxidants, polyphenols and the chemical constituents of tea to immerse ourselves in the very essence of tea and discover why poets, priests and doctors have used tea as an elixir of life and plant medicine for centuries.
Bringing a mindful awareness to each tea we drink we will look at:
How each tea affects the Qi of our body
How each tea affects our mind and awareness
How to determine and directly experience the inherent healing properties of each tea
We will use a simple meditation technique combined with high quality, ceremony grade Chinese teas to take a tea tour around the body and experience the dramatic changes that each type of tea can create within us. This workshop will provide you with knowledge of:
- Using specific teas as an everyday medicine
- Techniques to identify whether any future tea you taste is beneficial to your health
