About the Event
Coming together as the moon cycles into the sign of Leo, we are going to awaken our self-sovereignty and feel into the spirit of self-empowerment through this distinctly leonine energy with Tea and flow. We will move through the creative energies of the new moon, a potent time to set intentions and manifest our dreams.
Tea is used in Cha Dao for Her innate quietude, her capability to calm and sharpen the mind at the same time, and her gentle ways of opening the heart through communion and reconnection with Nature. There is a saying in Cha Dao that as we pour Tea, we become the Tea. The Dao is the "flow" of the Universe, and to become at one with the Dao is at the very core of manifestation - for when we get out of our own way, so too will the Universe get to work without resistance that is so often imposed by our very own fear and inhibitions.

Social Distancing Update: Now, as we adjust to these winds of change, we look at serving Tea virtually, instilling stillness and presence of mind across the digital waves. You can still participate by simply finding a quiet corner and sitting in silence with me during the tea ceremony. What you need: 1. A bowl or cup is fine too. Prepare a flask or kettle of hot water. If you have no loose leaf teas around, simply pour this steaming hot water into the bowl/cup and drink in tandem with me. 2. As you sit in silence you begin to become conscious of the Qi the heat is catalysing within you. Continue to sip on the water/tea, and begin to sink into this meditative silence. The more often we partake in ceremony, the easier we find it to sink into meditation and slowly, this meditative pace and appreciation for the simplest things in life will seep into your daily lives. After the ceremony has ended, I will be opening the floor to reflections, questions, and of course, a chat. The bowls, as they come and go during the tea ceremony, is a symbolic mandala of our connection – as we sit together we drop all egos and identities are simply being ourselves, with the conscious awareness that we are also all individuals who will eventually leave this ceremony to go on with our lives. In this moment, it is my honour to sit and connect us all. In this moment that is all that matters – this very moment.
