JADE VALLEY CONTINUING PROGRAMS

Please join us for the fifth installment of this series of mini retreats, based upon Ancient Practices.                                    


DRINKING BEAUTY, ALIGNING WITH ETERNITY

Dropping in Deeply to our own inner Silence while accessing the healing qualities of rare aged medicinal quality Puerh Tea, we will drink out of real antique Tea wares, and sit together to share in this unique offering of meditative space, in a beautiful, supportive setting of peacefulness and wonder.

The day will begin with an introductory Tea Service in our private tiny teahouse, and touch upon the history and technique of Tea and Meditation. This is a practice that includes both Taoist and Zen aspects.           

 

                                                                                                                


Then, we will move outdoors to a location suitable according to the current weather conditions. If the weather is sunny and somewhat warmish, we'll sit under a beautiful ancient oak tree overlooking a flood plain and open forest. If mildly cold or a little rainy, we'll sit on the covered front porch. If extreme, we'll stay indoors.

We will then have our main Tea Service, in silence, while in sitting meditation, followed by a brief post-sit leg stretch and then a walk-about on the land (weather permitting), also in silence.

We will then finish with our last Tea Service, in a more casual, conversational atmosphere to facilitate inspired discussion, poetry sharing, and story telling. A light snack will be served during the final Tea Service.
