This Funzing Experience:

Neil’s Yard is a beautiful place known for its holistic feel and an amazing atmosphere.

And what can be a better place to have our Tea Ceremony on this auspicious day? 

We will connect to ourselves and others through connection with Tea, and we will have a special raw dessert of your choice at the end of the tea ceremony

Tea Ceremony is about Mindfulness. It is performed in noble silence with me gently and quietly guiding through it. There will be an opportunity to talk before and after meditation, and small snacks will be provided afterwards.

During tea ceremony we shall focus our attention on tea, examine its colour, aroma. Tune into tea. Watch carefully how water merges with fire. Feel teaware with all our being. Feel that our body is also a precious vessel. Perform each movement with complete awareness and presence, always remembering the importance of every object, every action.

Simply drinking tea, brewing it, listening to the sound of wind outside and the sound of boiling water – this is the way to inner harmony and balance of mind, an opportunity to be in a present moment without ruminating about the past or worrying about the future. Tea provides this opportunity to everyone.

I am looking forward to sharing a bowl of tea with you all!

Salad Pride http://www.saladpride.com/

Amazing place serving incrdible breakfasts and salads all day - which are masterpieces both by look and taste. One you have tried even only one of them, you are their fan for a lifetime. At least that is what happened to me when I first tried one of their salds. Healthy, beautiful and environmentally conscious. The Salad Pride space and Tea Ceremony with the Living Tea are a perfect match.
