Working with the powerful and calming centre of Cha Dao/The Way Of Tea, you will begin to embody the Tea Spirit: Harmony, Reverence, Tranqullity and Purity. You will learn from starting your own simple Tea practice as well as joining the Tea Ceremony space that I will host throughout the course of 8 weeks how to find your own calm joy and integrate that with your own lifestyle.

Alchemical 8-Week Immersion

Do you feel that anxiety and frustration is part of life, and that an eternal return to peace of mind is a privilege? I am here to tell you it doesn't have to be this way.

Not too long ago, I became disillusioned with my own life.⁣

I had everything I ever wanted - a job of which I had always dreamt, working in a highly reputable media organisation of which I had always dreamt; an amazing boyfriend, a beautiful albeit humble flat in an area of Hong Kong I absolutely adored.⁣

And yet.⁣

A feeling that this was not it began to grow stronger and stronger.⁣

I threw a huge request up to the Universe: "Please show me the way!" ⁣

There were conversations and thoughts I would have loved to share with a community I know would get it and not judge me.⁣

And yet I was not surrounded by people who understood me.⁣

It brought my self-esteem down low, to the point where I didn't dare to write the way I would have loved to write on social media, to the point where I simply shoved that romantic, spiritual side of me into a closet.⁣

"Foolish girl, head in the clouds!"⁣

"Oh please don't talk to me about those woo-woo sh*t."⁣

And then one day, an invitation landed in my email inbox:⁣

"Would you like to come for a Tea Ceremony?" ⁣

Why not, I thought, I love Tea. Never heard of a Tea Ceremony, but why the hell not.⁣

I walked into the new space, which was merely a couple of floors above my office, and was instantly overcome with a veil of calm and otherworldly aura.⁣

As the door to where the ceremony was held drew open, I was mesmerised by the grace of the woman sitting behind the table, one hand on the lid of a teapot.⁣

Incense was drifting up into the air.⁣

The room was filled with people gathered around the table, but all were silent.⁣

I took my seat on the cushion laid out for me and I watched as she prepared the tea, hands dexterous and intentional with every turn she took.⁣

Finally, when I was served with a smile and the bowl straight from her heart to me, something tugged me from my core.⁣

I took my first sip.⁣

And suddenly, I realised, the search has ended.⁣

I was no longer feeling inadequate and never good enough.⁣

I was no longer feeling like there was something more out there for me to achieve and prove.⁣

And from within the bowl, as I took another sip of the wonderful fragrant liquid, I heard:⁣

"You must be brave. You must serve Tea."⁣

After that transcendental experience, I was not sure what it all meant. All I knew was I had to speak to the woman who served me Tea.⁣

I wanted to learn everything from her.⁣

And yet I was scared.⁣

It felt like a major turning point. I felt deep down in my intuition, which was still slumbering then, that this was going to change my life forever.⁣

It took me ONE WHOLE MONTH before I finally got in touch with her. ⁣

We had another round of Tea and when I plucked up the courage to ask her to teach me everything she knew and introduce me to her teacher, she said:⁣

"Start from drinking Tea and learn Her language. That is all."⁣

And I did.⁣

I went to sit in her Tea Ceremonies everyday, sometimes twice a day.⁣

I eventually began to serve alongside her as her cha-tong · 茶童 ·, water-bearer. ⁣

I listened as she spoke about the nature of Tea and Cha Dao. ⁣

I cleaned the Tearoom with her and various other students of the same lineage as hers.⁣

I began to realise that I was going to leave my current job and this was going to be my destiny - to become a keeper of Cha Dao · 茶道 ·, The Way of Tea. ⁣

When I first started I would try to guess what Tea it was she was serving. I would ask questions of why she did this in this way, or how one Tea should be brewed.⁣

Always, she would say, "It doesn't matter what Tea it is. How did you FEEL when you drank the Tea?"⁣

Pretty quickly my mindset transformed. All else began to fall into place.⁣

Divinely timed, her teacher came to Hong Kong and I got to sit with him before I pursued my life-changing course to the next phase of my life: a move to Edinburgh to live with my now-husband.⁣

Everyone thought I was crazy. ⁣

Everyone still didn't quite get why I was so "obsessed" with learning something that seemed antiquated.⁣

But I have finally found my centre of stillness, and there is no turning back.⁣

I have since served over 100s of Tea Ceremonies online and am gearing up to serve in person even more now and launch epic programmes that will take you from surviving life to absolutely loving life.⁣

And who knows where the Way will lead me next? But this time, I am at peace with change and the unknown, because I have an amazing practice, a lodestar to guide me... ⁣

Alchemy begins when the conscious effort to turn inward to uncover the god-given capacity to create anew from the old commences.
The Void is where everything is disintegrating. Falling apart. Breaking away. To sit in this Void is the ultimate, intentional Way to transform your life and emerge Anew.
🌕 Remaining in the Void of No-thingness is crucial to anchoring in your expansion and ascension. 
And yet it goes against the grain of everything we are being taught to be in today's disposable and high-achieving society. 
In the past year, I have seen so clearly how panic and survival have kept humanity in a state of complete lockdown, energetically and physically. 
You find yourself guided to speak to someone or reach out to a spirit guide because this is your soul crying for help. 
Answering to this may feel scary because it requires releasing many things you used to believe - and beliefs are truly merely self-limitations.
Answering to this call to rise to your true magnificence is going to ask you to release some false ideas you have cultivated for so long.
What happens when you force your way out of the Void? You might recognise some of these...
Quitting one job and going into another, only to find yourself managing the same problems and same dramas...
Going from one lover to another and then to your horror, you find yourself stuck in the same toxic relationship...
Getting all the tools and techniques of manifestation and law of attraction but you still can't seem to bring any of your dreams and visions into reality...
Ever feel like "that was me, but I am not that version anymore."
Are you feeling responsible for alleviating the sufferings of others?
How do you embody that new version of you?
How do you anchor in your new expanded version and rise to show up fully?
Every level calls in a different version of you.




"[LiYing's] tea ceremony was a holy place. 

[Her] transmission was full of spaciousness and quiet and devotion.

I could feel the universe in this cup of tea - in this ceremony;

stillness purity reverence harmony wholeness completeness evoked through [her] graceful rendering of this tea ceremony.

Thank you for this heart healing and soul expanding experience. It was nourishment for my whole being."

"Leading up to and into the tea ceremony I was a human being in distress emotionally and mentally. I had been for a very long time.
To be suuccinct, the tea ceremony with Liying shattered all of the defenses I had used for many years to maintain my version of control over my emotions, mental state and my reality.
My heart and my soul then broke open and entire images of my past, my present and my future were seen by me in and through the tea.

It was and remains one of the most powerful and life altering moments of my forty one years and has dramatically changed my existence in this life for the better.

I have subsuquently participated in two more tea ceremonies with Liying and each time I shed more tears and learn more about my heart, my soul and the truths of who I am in this life."

*** Everything you take away from this highly powerful programme is meant to be integrated easily into your own lifestyle - but I won't put it past you that perhaps, your life  will transform entirely after this experience...

Marble Surface

In the eyes of Alchemical Daoists, what we see as "human imperfections", failures, mess, broken bits and disabilities, incapacity... are treasures to lead us to our alchemy.

When we are elevating into a higher consciousness, true transformation can only happen when there is an anchoring of the new, expanded reality.

We are such multi-layered and complex beings. This is why Tea, a complex plant medicine Herself, can change the course of our perceptions and way of being.

I used to lie awake in the wee hours of the morning.⁣

Wondering how I could change the world. ⁣

But now I know how. ⁣

And I know I don't need to try or do more.⁣

I simply am already changing the world for its highest good! ⁣

By accepting all of me, the whole me.⁣

By simply being me, the whole me.⁣

By owning my voice authentically.⁣

By loving me entirely.⁣

By willing to put down the story that weighs me down.⁣

By willing to close up the bleeding wound and stop blaming others.⁣

By willing to step out of the cordons of fear my mind likes to draw between what feels comfortable and familiar and what is not.⁣

So know this: your dream career/life doesn't have to be the be all end all, and life is ever changing so be open to where it leads you! And no, you don't have to work in a job that you hate because it is "life". ⁣

Life is what YOU choose it to be.⁣

The day I chose to stop arguing for my smallness and go for what I truly want, I chose to choose me, forever and always. ⁣

It is only natural that a multidimensional, holistic programme needs to be birthed to hold the whole of your true magnificent self to shine through. Woven through it all, is Tea of course!

The Beholding

Through symbolism, Mythology, ancient rituals and ancestral wisdom we go through this journey to rebirth, at any stage of your life right now, holding hands in a mandala of love so you are fully supported and seen.

When we are elevating into a higher consciousness, true transformation can only happen when there is an anchoring of the new, expanded reality.

What People Are Saying...



I’ve always pondered the power of our simple being-ness within silence and stillness. To witness this power has been something my soul has longed for since I was young. I got the chance to experience this through my private tea ceremony session with Liying. I wasn’t sure what to expect, and I got exactly what my soul has been seeking... absolute presence with another human. Liying is filled with love and compassion and has a keen ability to tap into the energy of others. It felt refreshing to have such beautiful space held for me in the most simple way... I felt truly seen, held, and loved in her unwavering presence for me like never before. There’s so much wisdom that tea has to offer, combined with Liying’s own wisdom (plus her gorgeous playlist), the experience was poetic, grounding, humbling, and enriching. I would highly recommend a private session as well as her group offerings.
