Tea Meditation Workshops

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 insight from established mind-body therapeutic modalities. Solo workshops for studios, as well as multi-week series 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.

Examples of workshops presented online currently include:

Sound of Tea

Tea & Centered Movement Study

Present Patience: Gongfu tea

Corporate Yoga + Tea

Looking to build a wellbeing program for your employees? Tea meditation and yoga are powerful stress reducers and balancing skills that anyone, in any body, can learn.

Tea meditation and mindfulness workshops are a core element of Being Tea’s educational programming. Corporate classes are usually 60 min and include guided meditation practices as well as essential information about tea itself, centered around seasonal themes. Classes may be presented as regular workshops (biweekly, monthly, quarterly), or as a limited series (4-8 topical classes). Available anytime in the Chicago area, or with advanced booking in other cities.

Additionally, I am enrolled in training myself! This year, I will be certified in a 200 hour program for psych-sensitive yoga and will be incorporating yoga elements into my work. Tea meditation classes currently include yogic breathwork exercises (pranayama) and meditation techniques, but you could also request yoga asana classes (the physical postures) along with tea meditation.
