Like two mirrors
Tea and heart reflect each other
Close your eyes
Let tea water flow down the heart path
This cup of tea is heart’s beckoning for natural gladness
Cause life is a beautiful feast of Zen and tea
Sipping this cup of heart tea, serene contentment instantly arises…
This tea meditation workshop is intended to use this ancient Asian spiritual art form as a portal to lead participants into the present moment for their meditation practice. From brewing the tea to sipping the tea, the participants will be guided to observe the entire process with full mind and body, using all senses. The principal of this meditation is derived from Insight/Mindfulness and Zen traditions, training the participants to tune inward, concentrate and observe the ever-changing physical and mental phenomena, cultivate loving kindness and self-compassion.
Choosing this venue is intended to connect tea, the original Chinese herbal medicine to Misty Meadows Herbal, the unique center nested in this beautiful land.
