‘Why Taoist Immortals Drink Tea’
A Journey to Ancient China
Health, Longevity and Unity with the Tao
After introducing the basics of Chinese Tea appreciation, Ken will discuss how to create a beautiful, harmonious tea gathering, including the traditional role of poetry in setting the mood.
This is the first time he has offered this unique Tea Ceremony in the UK.
Close your eyes and be transported back to ancient China as Ken recites thousand year old poems that celebrate the beauty of nature in the original Chinese, and in translation.
Next, learn a tranquil meditation to relax, quiet the mind and open the senses.
As you enjoy a traditional Chinese Tea Ceremony, you will feel the qi (energy) of the tea spread through the palate and the body, awakening every cell.
Ken will also discuss the healing benefits of tea, including exciting new research that demonstrates effects on cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and, most importantly, joy of life!
The ceremony is open to all and is a lovely way to complete the Primordial Qigong training.
There is a price incentive for booking the Primordial Qigong training at the same time as the Tea Ceremony
