Embrace the season’s change and nature’s invitation to slow down and turn inward, retreating to your inner self to welcome the abundance of simplicity and all that you already have. During this intimate session at The Morton Arboretum, participants will experience the transformation of the process of tea making into a meditation. The practice is inspired by the Chinese tea ceremony, known as gong fu cha, and incorporates elements of Zen philosophy, yogic philosophy, and Japanese tea culture.
Be prepared to sit for the majority of our practice. We will be tasting three separate, yet related, teas.
This program meets in person at the Arboretum.
