Join We De, Zen Monk, Tea Master and author of books such as the Way of Tea, Faces of the Master and Zen and Tea: One Flavor on a single day retreat with the purpose of delving deep into the relationship connecting Zen & Tea. Throughout the day Wu De will guide us towards understanding what is meant by the famous Zen saying: “Tea and Zen are one flavour”. We will be instructed in meditation and then practice meditation with tea. We will learn how a Zen mind affects our Tea, and how to brew Tea in a state of Zen. There will be moments to share our Zen with each other and participants will also be given suggestions on how to improve their tea service. The spirit of Cha Dao will prevail throughout the seminar.

Please bring a vegetarian lunch to share.
