Embodied Awareness Through Tea
How often do we fully experience anything? A flavor, an aroma? In our increasingly busy lives, tastes, aromas and sensations can be like background noise that we half-notice but rarely really pay attention to. And our biases and judgments can color our experiences to an extent that we don't really experience what we're sensing. It's easy to miss out on so much of the richness that life has to offer.

In this two-hour workshop led by Ken Cohen of Talking Tea, we'll be using tea as a vehicle for focusing and expanding our sensory awareness. Tea's broad spectrum of flavors and aromas makes it a perfect vehicle for enhancing our awareness, and, prepared in the Chinese gongfu cha style, tea allows us to engage all of our senses in the tasting process.

We'll begin with simple mindfulness and awareness practices to prepare the ground for experiencing the complexity of tea, and then Ken will guide us through tastings of four teas from China and Taiwan using flavor templates as aids to deepening our understanding of the tea experience.

Admission includes instruction in mindfulness and awareness practices, guided tastings of four teas, and discussion.
