Join us and learn to use Chinese tea as medicine! :)
In this class, we will cover:

~ The basics of Gongfu style tea and service
~ How to feel the medicine of the tea working in the body
~ How teas may work according to the Chinese Five Element Theory
~ How certain teas can be used to treat disease or promote a persons longevity
~ How the practice of tea service can be used to cultivate the body, mind, and spirit

This class is a five part series taking place on Sunday afternoons from February-March, 2019. Participants are encouraged to sign up for the entire series but can take each class individually. $80 is the cost for the whole series (5 classes) or $20 per individual class. Space is limited to six people

Part 1 of 5 will introduce the different types of tea to be used in the whole course as well as teach the etiquette and process of a Gongfu tea service. This class will also take time to help participants settle into their bodies and begin developing the senses necessary to experience the true depth of drinking tea.

Class one will feature teas which embody the element of Earth. Earth represents the aspects of tea which are sweet and nourishing. Earth also represents the foundation or ground to art of making and enjoying Chinese tea. None of the other elements can exist without Earth. Before we can travel, we have to know the ground that we may travel upon. Class one will set the stage for the journey ahead, featuring brighter and sweeter teas. No former experience is necessary to partake.
