Cha Dao, or ‘The Way of the Tea’, is a tea ceremony where preparation and presentation follow a defined ritual to respect lineage, steeped in meaning and purpose.
The tea ceremony is profoundly meditative and sensorial, bringing one directly in touch with the present moment by engaging all senses. By slowing and quietening down, we begin to let go of needing to do or say anything. We can then allow the tea to guide us deeper into the present moment and ultimately ourselves. Tea was originally used by Daoists and Sages as a form of medicine and a way to cultivate awakened presence and long states of meditation. We will therefore end with a short meditation.
Only sustainably produced, high quality, organic teas are used, sourced directly from small independent tea growers.
Please note that this is a non-profit event so all proceeds are donated to charity.
