About the Event:
Hackney is a beautiful place known for its vibrant feel and an amazing atmosphere. We collaborated with Kiara from Hara London just next to London Fields to hold monthly Tea Ceremonies in their beautiful amazing space. Hara London is a cafe and event space providing delicious, nourishing, sustainable food for the body and soul.
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.
About HARA LON
After running a series of pop-ups across east London, including at My Neighbours the Dumplings and Fount Hackney, veggie cafe Hara has just opened a permanent spot in Haggerston. Run by Kiara and Tess, who between them have worked at Workshop Coffee, The Clove Club, Fifteen, Sketch and St John, Hara is all about nourishing and sustainable food – in eastern medicine ‘Hara’ is the energetic centre of the body (from London The Inside)
