Event description

Description

The weekend will cover all you need to begin to flow with matcha.

Day one will cover basics from history, production & sourcing, through regions and grades of tea. Through etiquette, bowl handling, whisking techniques, water temperature, different styles of tea from matcha lattes to koicha.

Day two will move into the spiritual world of chanoyu. Hannah will discuss the links between tea and Zen, the history of chanoyu and the power of continued practice of a bodily form of ritual. Then you will learn, in as much depth as possible in one day, the Diamond Tea Meditation- a tea ritual created by Adam Somu Wojcinski. It orients itself to the compass, it brings in the power of the 5 elements and it invites consideration of the Diamond Sutra. It is a perfect ritual to begin to plumb the depths of this profound artform.

Much tea will be drunk, lunch will be provided by raw powerhouse Shoku Iku, there will be time of learning, time of meditation and time of practice. Powerful new forms and philosophies will be learnt.

The course will run from 10-4 on Saturday and Sunday. There is much to cover so please arrive 15 mins early and be prepared that it may run a little over time in the afternoons.

It is appropriate for beginners to intermediate levels of understanding of matcha.

Hannah will be fresh back from a month studying tea in Japan, including gaining a new qualification in her school of Chanoyu. This will be a potent time of embodied knowledge for Hannah and she is very excited to offer this course on these dates.
