Tea Ceremonies

Cha Dao "The Way of Tea" is a practice that comes from ancient Chinese and Tibetan origins. It has been used since its discovery by Buddhist and Daoists as a form of meditation, a way to cultivate an enlightened state, a way of sustaining mindfulness practices.

 

Tea can one feel comfortable, it forms friendships and bonds which transcend the everyday into something unique. Everywhere in the world this simple act of making tea has become ritualistic

and mundane, formal as well as informal. Tea meets us exactly where we are. 

 

Over the next few pages of this site we look at ChaDao practices and some simple techniques to learn at home.
