Cha Dao or "The Way of Tea" is a practice that comes from ancient Chinese lineage. It has been used since its discovery by the Daoists and Sages as a form of medicine and a way to cultivate awakened presence, sustaining long states of meditation.
Tea is a plant teacher, a spirit of nature, manifested through this Leaf and awakened by hot water. Used in ceremony, it is a dance between the elements, a sensory exploration of presence, where everything is connected by space. Tea meets us exactly where we are and gives exactly what is needed. She is a graceful, strong, compassionate teacher. She shows us a doorway, opens it, and gives one the choice to enter wherever one feels comfortable.
Tea medicine is an incredible medium to gather, share and connect with ritual in a meditative and experiential way during the full moon. With the facilitation of Palōmi, to steep in silence, meditative depth, softening and opening in this sacred way, you will explore an incredible ceremony of tea.
