About the Event:
Paddington Central have partnered with T-Lovers to deliver a unique Tea Ceremony experience to celebrate Chinese New Year. The event, which is one of the latest wellness trends to hit London, forms part of The Sessions at Storey Club, a regular, ongoing programme of events open to all.
After a few months of festive season, these long and cold winter months are an invitation to slow down and go on a journey of self-discovery, healing and detoxification of body and mind.
In this intimate Tea Ceremony we are going to use the Medicine of Tea for flushing out the toxins from the body, quieting the mind and turning inward. With Tea healing happens on many levels – mind, body and spirit. It brings peace and harmony to our life and inner balance that we all crave for.
Drinking Tea. Slowing down. Connecting. For when we stop, really stop, and drop into our body, real magic begins to unfold.
Tea Ceremony is a gateway to the moments of deep and profound experience of our own Being. It facilitates felt and direct experience of life itself. The Magic and Mystery that we are. All we need is to just stop. Really stop and listen. Tea provides the space for that to happen effortlessly.
During this Tea Ceremony we will gently come back to ourself and give ourself the much needed rest that we all need and deserve.
The Tea that will be used in the tea ceremony is going to be Puerh – fermented aged tea from the wild ancient tea trees in Yunnan, China.
About Lera Mimizu:
The Student of the Leaf, Lera’s mission in this world is to transmit peace, presence, love and harmony to others through tea. Lera discovered Tea several years ago, and started working with this Plant Medicine almost straight away, after joining the amazing tea community called Global Tea Hut. This was love at first sight, and from that moment on she adopted The Way of Tea as her Spiritual Practice. Tea Ceremonies were the most wonderful way to combine two things she was so passionate for – Tea, Spiritual Growth and Awakening. With awe and amazement Lera observes time after time how tea transforms her, her life and others. How quickly Tea touches those who are open to it, how deeply it reaches everyone’s hearts, and how subtle but profound the inner transformation is.
Lera’s own spiritual journey started in 2006, after the complete disillusionment with the corporate sector and life that it offered. It started with the stay at Osho’s community in Pune and meditating every day from morning till night for a some time, then led her to practice Vipassana and study Human Design, Vortex Energy Healing, tantric studies. Lera is a strong believer in the somatic practices, and the way of healing through feeling. And all of these hugely help her in her own Tea practice. Many, who come to her tea ceremonies, are in awe how powerful and healing these sessions are, how much peace, harmony and surrender they feel afterwards, and how much magic they start to notice in the ordinary moments of life.
