About the workshop:
Broadway Market is a beautiful place known for its vibrant feel and an amazing atmosphere.
We will connect to ourselves and others through connection with Tea, and we will have a special healthy dessert of your choice at the end of the tea ceremony!
Tea Ceremony is about Mindfulness. It is performed in noble silence with me gently and quietly guiding through it. There will be an opportunity to talk before and after meditation, and small snacks will be provided afterwards.
During tea ceremony we shall focus our attention on tea, examine its colour, aroma. Tune into tea. Watch carefully how water merges with fire. Feel teaware with all our being. Feel that our body is also a precious vessel. Perform each movement with complete awareness and presence, always remembering the importance of every object, every action.
Simply drinking tea, brewing it, listening to the sound of wind outside and the sound of boiling water – this is the way to inner harmony and balance of mind, an opportunity to be in a present moment without ruminating about the past or worrying about the future. Tea provides this opportunity to everyone.
