Trainings and Workshops
Maha rose North
SUNDAY, SEPT. 19th 10 - 6pm
Veteran sound practitioner and music therapist, Katie Down (LCAT, MT-BC), and celebrated author and tea practitioner, Corinne Trang, will offer a day-long, retreat-style immersion in the healing properties of tea, sound, and deep listening meditation.
Participants will be introduced to techniques and rituals in tea preparation and enjoyment using a Chinese centuries-old practice known as gong fu cha. This will be followed by mindful listening with breath, subtle movement, creative visualization, vocal toning, and playing techniques on the Sansula, a modern kalimba often used in sound meditation. (Participants may bring their own instrument if they have, or purchase a Sansula on site or in advance).
Finally, Corinne and Katie will combine a meditative practice of Cha Dao (The Way of Tea) with soothing sound bath meditation to wrap up the retreat. Please bring your own favorite tea bowl for this meditation.
