the way of tea
Cha Dao is a path to enlightenment by "The Way of Tea" through the practice of emptiness. It comes to us through ancient Chinese lineages. When we drink tea in a sacred ceremonial space, we can feel that we are a part of the nature that gave us the tea, while it streams into us and becomes our body, mind, and soul. Tea is a gentle medicine that brings awakened presence to our everyday lives and allows us to maintain sustained states of meditation.
