Chaxi · 茶席 · "Chaxi [is] a mandala, a work of art to connect with a specific teaching, the cosmos or an aspect of the cosmos." ~ Wu De
Every Tea stage · chaxi · is never the same. The setting depends on so many factors － the people we are serving, the season, the nature all around us, and for me, the crystal chosen specifically for the healing modality. Even the tea is chosen intuitively, or for many, based on the season (winter being in the element of water, we might want to choose a more yang or metal elemental Tea to balance out the qi within).
Once the ceremony has ended, we must clean away everything that is resonant of the last. We must clean as a part of the Dao's teachings － purification to purity of mind, heart and soul. Cha Dao, in my teacher's words, is 90 per cent cleaning.
How we do one thing is how we do everything. What are your thoughts on working with Nature's melodies? How have you enjoyed your Tea so far?
