Tea & zen startar 20 maj

Välkommen på veckovisa teceremonier med zen meditation på Trinity yoga som leds av Yuliya. På torsdagar hålls ceremonin kl 19.00 till 20.30 och söndagar kl 11.00 till 12.30. Vill man inte stanna hela stunden, går det bra att avvika tidigare.  

Så här skriver Yuliya om stunden på Facebook:

"Tea can be a great aid in cultivating outer quietude and inner stillness zen and tea are, after all, one flavor. It's hard to talk with a mouth full of tea. Besides, the tea wants you to be quiet. It invites you inward.

At first you notice only gross flavors, but over time your tea drinking more and more becomes a time of quiet rest, introspection and stillness. This happens naturally. Then, you begin noticing more and more flavors, as if the tea were rewarding you for your newfound peace. You begin to notice things beyond the flavor and aroma. There are sensations: the way the tea touches the mouth and throat, and returns on the breath.

Over time, these also become softer and softer, clearer and clearer as you become more sensitive. This only happens when there is outer quietude, which leads to inner stillness; and it isn't long before you realize that your own state mind is the most important ingredient in the tea it's not which tea or teaware, but how it's prepared. Eventually, you begin to experience the movement of what Chinese call "Qi". This is the living energy within our bodies. Whether you move your foot or not you know it's there, even with your eyes closed, because you can feel it from the inside. You are feeling electricity traveling through nerves to your brain, atomic movement and energy, Qi, or whatever else you wish to call it. Fine tea catalyzes this energy, causing it to move, and if you are quiet without and within you will begin to feel it." by WuDe, Zen and Tea One Flavor"
