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 4/14 1:00-2:30PM

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

Space: Six spots 

Class Three: Listening

Class three will feature one of the most important skillsets required for tea to become medicine. This skill is listening. If we cannot listen, we cannot know what is required. We must listen to the tea to know its medicine. We must listen to our companions to know what they need. We must listen to ourselves to know how we are showing up. When listening is there, so is medicine. When listening is not there, neither is medicine.

Class three will featuring teas that assist our listening process. No former experience is necessary to partake (even if you missed the first two classes, we would still be thrilled to have you!).
