TEA & MEDITATION MINI-RETREAT
We open our new private retreat center with this first program in a series.
SITTING WITH TEA : CONNECTING WITH NATURE
Dropping in Deeply to our own inner Silence while accessing the healing qualities of rare aged Puerh Tea, we will sit together to share in this unique offering of meditative space.
The day will begin with a brief introduction to the history and technique of Tea and Meditation. This is a practice that includes both Taoist and Zen aspects. A short question and answer period will be followed by the first Tea Service.
Then, we will move outdoors to a breathtaking location on the land, beneath the sheltering canopy of a huge Ancient Oak Tree that looks out onto a flood plain of the Deer Creek Watershed Basin. We will sit at this spot for the first meditation session, followed by A SILENT TEA SERVICE in this same location.
A second meditation session then follows, after which we will then proceed in silence back to the main house for an ending Tea Service.
THIS IS THE FIRST OFFERING, AND OFFICIAL OPENING EVENT, OF OUR NEW PRIVATE RETREAT CENTER, ONLY 10 MINUTES FROM DOWNTOWN NEVADA CITY.
