June Tea Ceremonies and Workshops Program

Thursday, June 7 19:00-20:30: Tea Ceremony for Relaxation

The Tea Ceremony is a precious chance for deep relaxation and sacred space to nourish ourselves and reconnect. We connect with nature through the tea leaves, we connect to ourselves through our meditation and we connect to others through the shared experience.

We will begin with a short welcome and introduction before commencing. We will then proceed with the tea ceremony, sharing a few cups or bowls of tea in silence. Lastly, we’ll save a little time for questions and for sharing our experience etc.

Limited Seating. Reserve at Čaj Chai Barcelona. Price: 23€ or 18€ for Čaj Chai Club members.

 

Saturday, June 16, 19:00-21:00: Discovering Wild Oolong Tea / Gong Fu Cha Tea Ceremony

Oolong Tea, sometimes referred to as blue tea in the West, is the tea genre which encompases all the semi-oxidized teas. It may be the widest genre of all as it includes a wide array of teas ranging somewhere between green and black tea.

In this workshop we will discover 3 very special (and very different) Wild Oolong Teas. We will discuss each tea, where they come from, what Wild Tea means and enjoy these very rare teas brewed as Gong Fu Cha.

Limited Seating. Reserve at Čaj Chai Barcelona. Price: 30€ or 25€ for Čaj Chai Club members. Your participation grants you a 10% discount on all of your tea and tea accessory purchases made on the day of the event.

Michie Kuwashima: tibetan bowls; Guillermo Rizzotto: guitar sound textures; Antonio Moreno: Tea Ceremony

The Tea Ceremony is a precious chance for deep relaxation and sacred space to nourish ourselves and reconnect. We connect with nature through the tea leaves, we connect to ourselves through our meditation and we connect to others through the shared experience.

We will begin with a short welcome and introduction before commencing. We will then proceed with the tea ceremony, sharing a few cups or bowls of tea in silence. Lastly, we’ll save a little time for questions and for sharing our experience etc.

This tea ceremony will flow accompanied by a live sound experience performed by Sonando道

Sonando makes sound scapes that lead us to our Inner Silence. Tibetan bowls and ambient guitar textures fuse together with the vibrations of the participants, inviting us to a meditative space where each encounter is unique and ephemeral, just as in life… ichi-go ichi-e.

We invite you to live the present, where we’ll hold space for something to emerge and transform towards simplicity and oneness.

Limited Seating. Reserve at Čaj Chai Barcelona Teahouse. Price: 25€.

 

Sunday, June 24, 11:30-13:00: Silent Tea Ceremony with Special Guest Host: Mia Maestro

Join us for community tea ceremony. We will sit in silence and share many bowls of tea together honoring the spirit of “The Great Connector” that Living Tea is.

When we drink tea in a sacred ceremonial space, we can feel that we are part of the nature that gave us the tea, while it streams into us and becomes our body, mind and soul. Together, we’ll delve into the ancient tradition of Cha Dao, uniting awareness and tea plant medicine and discover how tea can teach us mindfulness in our daily lives.

Limited Seating. Reserve at Čaj Chai Barcelona Teahouse. Price 25€ . Your participation grants you a 10% discount on all of your tea and tea accessory purchases made on the day of the event.
