Tea Ceremony


Tickets are not available as this event has passed.

The ‘Way of Tea’

In this workshop Lera Zujeva will talk about the history of Tea, its origins, the journey of The Leaf and the history of the Tea Ceremony, its practice and benefits. 

For centuries Tea was viewed and used as a Plant Medicine, as something that deeply heals you on more than the physical level. Ancient Daoists realised that Tea works with the Mind, Body and Spirit and to be healthy means to be healthy in all three aspects. Tea flushes out the toxins, and brings peace and harmony to our lives. It connects us to the human and the ‘being’ part of the Human Being. To both mundane and sacred simultaneously. 

In Zen tradition Tea was used by Zen Masters to transmit, both physically and metaphorically, to their students, wisdom, Truth, that cannot be expressed in words, just by silence alone. 

Here we will explore the power of Tea, the power of this humble Leaf, to connect us to Life, ourselves and others in a profound way. To the deep profound intimate experience of being, of Life itself. 

There will be a demonstration of the Tea Ceremony in silence in the second part of the workshop.

Lera’s Story

Lera Zujeva

When I left my secure office job I expected the long awaited freedom, happiness and joy. Yet, it was the opposite. My mind became overflown with doubts and thoughts and even more fears. It was a very interesting journey of a few years, during which I got pregnant and had my son. All of it was a necessary step, still it was not the final destination. After so many years trying to find that one thing that will make me tick I still didn’t find it.

But one day a chance encounter with the magic woman revealed Tea to me. In truth, this woman was not that magical, she was a specialist focusing on helping people to discover not only their talents but what talents would make them jump out of bed each morning. She told me that if I was 18 and lived in Paris, she would straight away send me to be a perfumer, because my sense of smell and feeling is so powerful. But because I wasn’t 18 and was living in London, then Tea was the perfect alternative. As soon as she said Tea – I felt a strong resonance in my heart. Something clicked. Pieces of puzzle came together. I knew that I found it. Or may be Tea found me? Who knows. But this was the start of my journey with Her. With Tea. Love that never seizes to go deeper. That after so many years continues to grow. Tea is my Love. I live Tea, I breathe her. She is such a big part of my life, ingrained in my flesh and my bones. 

She has everything I feel passionate about – senses, spirituality, history, connection and so much more. And I am here to share all of this with you though Her’
