This is “Being” Tea

“To be” is to inter-be. You cannot just be by yourself alone. You have to inter-be with every other thing.”

Thich Nhat Hanh

I’ve come to view Tea – the practice of it, drinking, learning, sharing and teaching of it – to be one of humanity’s most powerful connectors. An agent for both self-discovery and community, Tea teaches us to be vulnerable as we sit in the present moment, and witnesses our being listened to.

What Tea does for you

“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”

Brene Brown

Tea touches all of your senses, supporting body, intellect and emotion. Very few other avenues of study can claim that. The actions of preparing and sitting with Tea mirror who you are inside, in that moment. As a medium for an active, personal practice, tea gives agency to participate in your own well-being and find growth in your journey.

Work with Being Tea

Being Tea means removing barriers to understanding. I make tea and practice accessible to teachers and students alike through on-site workshops, group and private sessions, and self-driven online learning.

My own practice is informed by 17 years of immersion in the professional world of tea, from garden to cup, as a teacher grounded in adult learning principles, with a unique focus on accessibility issues and trauma-sensitive support. Discover how Being Tea can help curate a practice that resonates for you.
