About The Chi of Tea
Through the senses and into the body, the contemplative brewing and imbibing of whole artisanal tea leaves has since ancient times been a way to cultivate the “Equanimous Mind”. 

The practice seeks to allow one to find stability and balance within the mind, and develop composure despite experiences, emotions, and other phenomena. It doesn’t hurt that it’s delicious as well.

The experience
The entire process is conducted in silence, allowing one to experience the practice through the senses keenly. 

Involving two to three curated tea types, participants experience the healing benefits of both mindful contemplation, and the beneficial properties of the teas themselves. The main steps are stillness, inspection, scent, taste, body sensation, and contemplation.

You are encouraged to write down your experience in a notebook during the process, and there will be a sharing session at the end. Observing the tea master prepare and brew also has meditative qualities that enhance the experience outside of drinking and smelling delicious tea. Even if you’re only there to drink some tea, that is perfectly okay!

Take in the process for it is a joyful one without expectation nor obligation. Be prepared to be drinking 300-500ml of tea, but bowls will be provided if it gets too much and you need to pace yourself.

The Why
At its deepest levels, one can gain clarity, wisdom, and inner healing; it can be deeply moving and meditative and can give you access to your higher self if done mindfully. Tibetan and Zen Buddhist monks drink tea to facilitate wakefulness (caffeine) in long hours of meditation, while at the same time be balanced out with a sense of tranquility (L-theanine, GABA, and other gentle psychoactive compounds).

If you seek mindfulness, harmony, humility, self-transformation, and spiritual awakening, this practice is definitely for you. Outside of that, anti-oxidative, and healthy benefits of tea cannot be understated. And did we mention that tea prepared well is delicious?
 
Who this is for, and how to prepare
  • People of all ages are encouraged to join the session. Children under the age of 18 should be supervised by a parent or guardian. Some teas are more acidic, so we recommend that you have something light to eat before the session. If you are particularly sensitive to tea, consider the timing of the session so that it does not affect your sleep at night.
  • As the programme will start on time, please arrive at least 5-10 mins before the starting time, so that you can be ready when the programme starts.
