Tea Meditation (茶禪)


 
  "Tea is said to be a way. This is because it is something one learns to appreciate through feeling, not through verbal instruction. If a person maintains a state of quietness, only then will one appreciate the quietness inherent in tea." ~ Lu Yu

What is Tea Meditation (茶禪)?

Meditation is the practice of techniques to train the mind and attain a state of consciousness, where we become aware of our thought and behaviour patterns in order to shift them for the better.  Regular practices is a useful and sustainable support system for stress management.

Tea Meditation primarily focuses on tea - the process of making tea, drinking tea and sensing the effect of tea on our mind and body. Each experience is unique in itself. The link between the individual and the tea is personal.

We can easily integrate Tea Meditation into our daily routine - i.e. it is as simple as having a cup of tea as a break and there is no need for the overly elaborated set up as you may have seen on, say, Instagram!

As it becomes our daily routine, we deepen the learning of our own experience with compassion and kindness towards ourselves.

WHY PRIVATE SESSION ONLY?

Each session of Tea Meditation is in essence a workshop, specifically tailored for the client's own requirements. Some have come to us out of pure curiosity. Some have come because they want to gain new perspective or more insight about themselves through the practice.

Our objective is to introduce the relevant elements about tea, meditation, life philosophies and useful tips to enhance and sustain your quality of life and wellbeing.

Through the session, you will get inspired to create your own ritual for tea drinking and meditation practice. After all, we are the one who gives the meaning to our life purpose.
