It took me a while to realise that one could drink Tea for years, centuries even, but never walk the Dao.
To connect with Cha Dao, we must first let go and begin anew everytime and stay present to the now.
We tap into the Zen no-mind zone, where no dogma or form exists. Understanding that Zen, a Japanese word that stems from the Chinese word Chan · 禪 ·, which stems from the Indian word Dhyana, which simply means meditation, you see how Zen is the meditative mind, an I-don't-know mind that allows us to open to whatever that may flow through us with Tea Spirit.
It is my intention to take you on this journey to where it can all lead you to the heart centre, so that whatever you learn through these sessions can ripple outward to your entire life.
Moments that are so beautiful they cannot simply be described in words.
Heart breaking wide open to receive the liquid light of the Dao, the Universe, the Source. Remembering that each one of us has a personal Dao (a personal Way) will allow us to honour the cycles of life and death, of wounds and scars, knowing we are all cycling through the phases of Nature, just as a tree would do.
And so much more, if you are open to receive. It doesn't matter if you have no idea what Tea you're drinking or why She speaks to you; where the Leaves are from and how this practice is calling out to you.
We are taking a daring leap into the Dao's flowing waters of non-being to become a new being every time we meet Tea. We empty out, fill up, and hold the water in this bowl of Tea, and then empty it all out again.
