About the Event
A time of waning light A time for solitude for stillness. This journey deep into your Self To find your true Kensho Has already begun.
With offerings to the ancestors, with lanterns and moon cakes and of course, Tea, let this be the month we honour our lineage and heal our ancestral wounds through integration and tender slow, supportive love for ourselves and others.
For centuries, Zen monks, taoists and shamans have relied on the Tea Spirit for their healing abilities and ancient wisdom. This is a practice that has been left in the dust of the past as Tea began to be grown and sold as a commodity. In this ritual Tea is honoured as plant medicine and Spirit through creating a sacred space in which our beings can sit in silence, turn inward and reconnect to our hearts, through Nature, through love and gratitude for the simple moments in life.
Much later when Tea Ceremony became a truly reverred art form in Japan, Samurais, monks and emperors alike would drop their identities and leave their swords and armours outside the tearoom, and all sit together in reverent silence, in a place where social position, judgement and differences melt away.
Tea ceremony will allow you to drop from your head into your heart, often times in the most unexpected ways. In this practice, we sit as love flows from our hearts into the bowls of tea, and it becomes simply something sacred to behold. The ordinary becomes extraordinary. Gratitude flows. Creativity unlocks.
We honour the ancient traditions, tea trees and earth, fire, water, mountains and rain, moon, stars and sun – nature's alchemy that is within us and yet, sadly forgotten in today's busy lives. In this soft gentle heart space, As the saying goes, the brewer defines the taste of the Tea that is served and the energy of a Tea Ceremony.
We will be focusing on several concepts to raise your awareness in this special Mid-Autumn Ceremony:
· Breath ~ a conduit between body and mind, signalling the mind to work for you, not against you. My method encompasses the activation of the chakra system and purification of the energetic toric field to quantum flip your current state to manifest your true magnificence and live a life of abundance and resourcefulness.
· Tea ~ the great connector between humans and all matters of jing (essence), qi (energy/subtle body) and Shen (spirit), we find presence and connect to the wisdom of Father Sky and Mother Earth through the magic of wild, untainted Tea leaves
· Words ~ what the ancients used to call "cloud scrolls" from heavens above, we will learn how to use words to powerfully root in our vision, dreams, and observe our self-limiting beliefs and build a compassionate container for the traumas that we store within our subconscious and unconscious body.
· Body ~ the bridge between spirit and mind, communicating the true nature of your soul so the mind can carry out meaningful actions that serves your expansion
