In the Western World, many people practice different relaxation techniques such as yoga, meditation, and breathing exercises while in Asia, people also have their own ways to practice meditation and relaxation and one of which is by a ceremonial way of preparing and drinking tea. A tea ceremony is a ritualized form of preparing tea which is widely practiced in China, Japan and Taiwan, a tradition from over 3,000 years ago. In Asian culture, tea ceremony or tea ritual is considered as a bonding experience of mindfulness, respect and a focus on the now.
“Imagine yourself in a moment of inner peace while enjoying a small cup of tea surrounded by serenity and tranquility…”

Meditative Tea Ceremony with Ms. Emma Fountain
Based on the ancient Taiwanese tradition of drinking tea, this tea ceremony is a meditative practice of grace and peace. We will sit and drink wild crafted Oolong tea as a meditation art form. You will sit quietly for the whole session whilst you are served bowls of tea in a particular formation. This is a tradition from over 3,000 years ago of showing respect to yourself, being present in the moment and offering self-care to yourself and others.
The Meditative Tea Ceremony at Navutu Dreams will be offered for FREE, limited spaces available (First 10 participants only). To confirm your space, please email [email protected] or call +855 (0) 63 964 864.
