Kanō_Osanobu_71_uta-awase_croppedZen and Tea Day

Sunday 14 December 10.30 – 5.00, led by Prabhasvara, who writes:

“I’ve spent the past three years in Asia studying Tea with several famous Masters, and I feel very passionately about the benefits of drinking ancient, organic Tea mindfully. It can have a really positive effect on our practice of the Dharma. After all, 1500 years of Zen’s intertwining with Tea must point to something. . .

“The day will include meditation and two ancient style Tea ceremonies. Afterwards, we will have a more informal discussion about the power Tea has to connect us to ourselves, to others, and to Nature. A word of warning to most of you. Please don’t think we will be drinking the types of Teas found in supermarkets. Tea from ancient trees is an entirely different experience! But by the time we get to this, you’ll know already! If you are interested, please check out my website at www.livingtea.co.uk, or my Facebook Page at Living Tea -UK”
