Gongfu Cha is a traditional way of preparing tea with mindfulness (“with skill” is the translation of gongfu). Course length, 1:05 hour.
The focus of this workshop is tapping into our capacity for what is called “calm alertness” – a patient presence, poised yet relaxed – with tea as our way of practice. We’ll take a deeper look at gongfu techniques that cultivate our sense of compassion, generosity, and ability to be with ourselves and with our tea. Presented in “live to tape” unedited format, and includes tasting exercises presented in real time. Original airdate: Sep 2019.
