Daoist Lifestyle and Tea Appreciation Classes
Combining, tea appreciation, qigong, and practical teachings for Daoist living, Daoist Lifestyle tea classes offer an integrated learning experience, for bringing the practices and principles of Daoism into you own life.
Customizable to fit needs of a group or situation, the classes emphasize the embodiment of the teachings, actually living a day as a Daoist in domestic life, through simplicity, ease, and balance.
The principles of Daoist living are best communicated in a relaxed atmosphere, which sharing tea certainly is. Similarly, the heart of tea appreciation is best imparted in person, over a warm cup of tea.
