Tea lends itself naturally to the quiet exploration of patterns in behavior and movement, mental constructs/narratives of Self, and how one relates to other people, nature and environment.
Through tea, we learn how to listen to the body’s cues and better modulate our responses to stimuli – positive or negative – in a soothed, non-reactive manner. The ultimate goal is to leverage this understanding toward the rising stress in our life, diffusing its enormous grasp on our health. Tea can teach us this. It calms the busy, choppy mind. It grounds the body and connects us to our senses.
Tea Mindfulness Therapy is an original program of study that I’ve been developing. It collects knowledge from the deep cultural history of tea as a root for meditation practice and pairs it with modern lessons from established mind-body therapeutic modalities. Solo workshops for studios, as well as 4-week terms for small group and 1:1 private sessions, are available for this practice. Also available online as a membership tier level for members of my program on Patreon.
