Four Thousand Years Blooming in a Cup: A Spring Gathering of Tea Meditation Workshop with Juliann Wang

Each day we begin anew, a cycle that persists since the dawn time. Each moment we encounter is its own universe. Tea is fabled to have existed in human culture for more than 4,500 years, but only as a daily beverage since the third century. Through tea we encounter the new and the old, the pure and the everyday.

In this workshop, you’ll experience a presentation of Chinese tea ceremony and a guide to various tea types. Along with this we’ll discuss brewing practices, aesthetics, and methods to bring harmony for ourselves and in gathering to share moments of subtle joy!! Limited to only 20 spots!

Workshop Highlights:

Philosophy of Tea: An introduction to tea preparation, some methods, and how the act of preparation is just as important as consuming a good cup of tea!

Tea Types: We will look at a few types of tea to familiarize ourselves with how they differ and their uses in daily and specialized practice.

Creating a Mood: Setting up your space, whether a complicated affair or a simple moment is important to bringing ourselves into awareness of the subtleties of flavor, aroma, and experience. We will discuss some methods to help enhance your personal tea experience, and create a moment of pause in your daily routine.
