Qigong + Tea Immersion


  • AY^AM 3 Avenida De Melodia Tesuque, NM, 87506 United States (map)

THE CHINESE MARTIAL AND INTERNAL ARTS ARE DEEPLY WOVEN TOGETHER WITH CHA DAO, THE CHINESE TEA CEREMONY.

LET US ACTIVATE OUR QI—THE LIFE FORCE ESSENCE—THROUGH THESE ANCIENT PRACTICES OF PROFOUND PRESENCE AND RECEPTIVITY.

JOIN US AS WE:

MOVE DEEPLY INTO STILLNESS AND SILENCE;

LEARN THE FIVE ELEMENTS RELATIONSHIP WITH THE BODY, MIND, AND SPIRIT, AND HOW TO USE QIGONG TO CARE FOR YOUR OWN RELATIONSHIP TO WHAT LIFE PRESENTS TO YOU;

LEARN HOW TO MOVE THE BODY MEDITATIVELY, INSPIRED BY THE QI WITHIN, AND HOW TO USE THE “EXTERNAL” MARTIAL MOVEMENTS OF GONGFU TO TRAIN THE BODY TO MOVE EFFORTLESSLY;

ONE NEED NOT HAVE ANY PRIOR EXPERIENCE TO ATTEND—ALL MOVEMENTS CAN BE DONE AT ONE’S OWN PERSONAL LEVEL OF PRACTICE, WHETHER STANDING OR SITTING.

 IMMERSE IN TEA

CHA DAO "THE WAY OF TEA" IS A PRACTICE THAT COMES FROM ANCIENT CHINESE LINEAGE. IT HAS BEEN USED SINCE ITS DISCOVERY BY THE DAOISTS AND SAGES AS A FORM OF MEDICINE AND A WAY TO CULTIVATE AWAKENED PRESENCE, SUSTAINING LONG STATES OF MEDITATION. TEA IS A PLANT TEACHER, A SPIRIT OF NATURE, MANIFESTED THROUGH THIS LEAF AND AWAKENED BY HOT WATER. USED IN CEREMONY, IT IS A DANCE BETWEEN THE ELEMENTS, A SENSORY EXPLORATION OF PRESENCE, WHERE EVERYTHING IS CONNECTED BY SPACE.
