About the Event

This Tea Ceremony will focus upon 

* The Four Virtues Tea Ceremony - 和敬清寂

* Reframing, reaffirming, shifting perspectives and vibration levels

* We sit in honour of ourselves, and with Tea Spirit. We sit with the Light within us, also known as the Buddha, that is within us. When we are connected from within we will start to see the artifices of life fall away, gently melting away all the beliefs that do not serve us. When we can truly call ourselves home we can love ourselves no. matter. what. And that is what we are here to do, every single day, sitting in meditation and chanting affirmations. You may not, like me in the past when I was consumed by eating disorders, be able to look yourself in the eye at all in the mirror or find yourself tearing yourself into bits whenever you see a reflection or a picture of you. Know that you can free yourself. You are always free to walk away from this illusory quagmire. You can walk away and shift realities. Isn't that amazing? Now feel into this possibility. This new world that you can inhabit through simply reconnecting with yourself and forgiving yourself and all those past experiences that had caused you pain and had led you to believe that you do not deserve love or that you are never good enough. First, create the space for you to hold space for yourself, and then, everything will fall into place. 

* In this approach to Tea. Tea is a way of life. Also known as the Dao (Cha meaning Tea and Dao the Way) you become the service of Tea. You aren't just drinking or making Tea, you are coming to Tea with reverence, patience and love. And with this frame of mind you instill presence, and presence is when you can truly listen and tune in to your spirit guides.

 

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. Go on Instagram account @Liyinglimmm or Facebook page When Still Waters Speak

2. 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.

3. 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 live session, 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. 

This ceremony is free for all.
