Class Four: Virtue
Class four focuses on the end goal of Chinese tea practice: Virtue. Virtue in the Chinese tradition is thought to be a spontaneously arising phenomena. This means that we cannot make virtue happen. We can, however, set a proper foundation for its arising. Tea practice is one way to allow virtue to manifest. When our virtue comes through, we become a healing presence for ourselves and for others.

Class four will feature teas that help us to manifest our own unique virtue. All are welcome to attend. =)

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 the pulse to know its health. 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.

We will drink teas that are soft and graceful Qi quality. All are welcome to join! =)
