April 23 | 7pm - 9pm | History in a Bowl of Tea: Tea and Meditation
There’s an old saying “Tea and Zen are the same flavor”. What does this mean? In the next chapter in the ongoing workshop and tea talk series “History in a Bowl of Tea”, we’ll delve into the linked history of tea and meditation, examining their often shared past and look at how tea was used in the context of aiding meditative practices throughout East Asia and beyond. In a story that spans several millennia, we’ll taste our way across time, imbibing the various concoctions that accompanied monks and shamans, warriors and poets, stimulating their meditative minds all along the way!
