The second theme we have been exploring in our focus on positive moments is 'Ritual' looking at how tea provides us with a ritual and why, this often simple step, can be the basis for a healthier and more positive life.
Rituals are something that we do regularly, but most importantly consciously and with intention. We are fully present and engaged in the moment and are aware of our thoughts and feelings without distraction or judgment. We are not thinking about the next task of the day, but fully involved in what we are doing. This is often hard in today’s world - full of distractions and reasons to be 'busy'.
In this blog we are sharing a few short videos looking at preparing tea using a traditional Western teapot & Japanese Kyusu, Gong Fu, Matcha preparation & tea preparation using a Gaiwan : you can read more on each preparation under each video and of course you can contact us if you have any questions!
