A Tea Ceremony is a celebration of the present moment. It is perfect for honoring a special moment in our lives, an important event, a birthday, an anniversary, a declaration of love or friendship, a gift to ourselves, a reminder to love ourselves, life and nature... a grateful appreciation of the present moment, ephemeral and infinite.
Through the Tea Ceremony we enjoy a unique, memorable experience. Through silence we share deeply and fully and make space for the transcendent possibilities of ceremony. Through tea we connect to ourselves, with our friends and family and nature in a pure, natural, authentic way.
The Bowl Tea ceremony is an invitation to find harmony, peace, relaxation and well-being through tea. It is perfect for connecting to oneself, our friends and family and nature.
This ceremony helps us deepen our relationship with tea and pays tribute to the legend of how Emperor Sheng Nong "The Divine farmer", discovered tea and its potential for healing. The Bowl Tea ceremony is perfect for letting go of the analytical mind and dropping into a deep tea meditation.
The essence of Bowl Tea is zen, where we are invited to appreciate things as they are, not as how we would like them to be. It is an opportunity to practice opening one's heart and just enjoy being and listening to the lessons tea may tea us through our attentive silence.
This Tea Ceremony invites the guest to focus their attention, to relax their mind and spirit, sharing tea and the present moment with friends in an open, calm atmosphere that involves putting our attention on all 5 senses. After a brief welcome and introduction, the formal Tea Ceremony will begin with silence, often accompanied with a carefully chosen music album that is appropriate for the occasion. We will enjoy various rounds of Bowl Tea with full presence and awareness to the five senses. The period of silence will last between 45-60 minutes and will also serve as a wonderful meditation. At the end of the ceremony guests are invited to share their experience, ask questions etc. Once you've ordered your Private Ceremony we will contact you to agree on a date and time.
