Please join us for a tea ceremony in our beautiful four season greenhouse. Drink tea in a grove of citrus and fig trees, flowers and herbs, while the cold weather is brewing outside. We will be sharing traditional bowl tea in the Cha Dao style of tea ceremony. Marco will share a bit about tea practice and there will be time after to relax in the greenhouse.
Cha Dao, “The Way of Tea” is a practice that comes from the depth of Chinese culture and from the Taoist practices of relating to nature as medicine. The ancient Taoists and sages use tea as both plant medicine and as a path to cultivate awareness and to deepen one's mediation practice. Tea is one of the most accessible plant teachers and as a gentle spirit, it can guide you into a more powerful and centered relationship with nature.
Led by Marco Chung-Shu Lam, who is one of our farm managers and also runs an integrative medicine clinic in Boulder. He is a skilled practitioner of internal martial arts, acupuncture and herbalism who has practiced in Colorado for over twenty years. He has a deep love of tea and will be sharing from his personal collection of both aged shou pu-erhs and an exquisite oolong in this session.
