About this Event

This seven-week course is a journey, a journey inward to the unknown, to an exquisite space within us that have lay dormant for as long as we have been alive here in this lifetime, and even before. What you will discover is entirely cerebral and heartfelt. No one person feels and perceives the same when they come to sit with Tea with an open heart and mind. 

Because of this, I want to emphasise that this is a space that is going to be kept intimate and that could allow an introduction to Tea and Ceremony, and then from there, build upon it with all the poetry and art and stories that She has inspired. 

This is for you if you are...

· entirely new to Tea culture and would like to explore Cha Dao as a beginner

· interested in cultivating a habit of meditating with Tea as a daily ritual

· interested in integrating Tea in your spiritual practice and establish a connection with all elements of nature as well as your chakras

· enamoured by myths and poetry

· simply attracted by the grace of a community filled with love and appreciation for presence and connection

Each week we meet twice, one for a Tea Ceremony and one class that corresponds to the week' subject.

You will receive online course material on how to start meditating with Tea, which includes one video tutorial and one guided meditation, alongside other lessons for life.

You will be part of a private Facebook group (optional of course) that will live on beyond this course. I will be on hand to answer any queries you may have at my best possible capacity. During and after seven weeks we will all have the opportunity to share Tea experiences.

You will receive a kit with different genres of Teas handpicked to personally delve into the Teas and get to know Them.

· Flow with the Dao. Flow with the unknown. That is where Magic happens. ·

Each time we meet we are met with a channelled energy that is beyond our comprehension and control. And with this energy we shall move, grow and serve. We will develop through this mystical energetics so an open mind and heart is so important to foster poetry, presence and connection in our lives.
