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 four part series taking place on Sunday afternoons from 1:00-2:30PM. Participants are encouraged to sign up for the entire series but can take each class individually. 

Time: Sunday 3/31 1:00-2:30PM

Cost: $70 whole series (4 classes) or $20 per individual class.

Space: Six spots 

Class One: Form

Class one will feature the structure by which, Chinese tea may be used as medicine. Temperature, flavor, and the Qi-feel of each tea will launch our discussion and practice of play. The placement of ceremony, rhythm, and timing are given special attention in this first class. Every movement, every change, is transformative. But how? How may we direct each tea experience in order for it to become medicine? Class one will set the stage for the journey ahead, featuring brighter and sweeter teas. No former experience is necessary to partake.
