Just the movement of tea can help us create a grounded, centered point in chaotic moments. In this Wellbeing Series class, we’ll explore both the symbolic and metaphoric ways that tea traditions incorporate centered, circular movements into their practice, as well as the psycho-sensory ways these can affect us positively and how you can bring this into your daily life.
– Thermos of hot water or an electric kettle.
– Loose leaf of your choice (green or white in summer, oolong or black in cooler weather), portioned out in a small tray or dish.
– Tea drinking bowl – something smaller than a matcha bowl. Could be a rounded mug that you enjoy. Should be about 10oz/300ml, with some room.
– Empty bowl to place discarded water or tea as we brew
Also be sure you’re in a comfortable, quiet place where you can be undisturbed for the hour. Sitting on the floor on a cushion is great, but chairs or sofa is also good. We’ll be drinking a few cups of tea, so make sure you have enough water.
