Mindfulness Workshop | The Way of Tea Workshop

This mindfulness workshop invites you to step away from the busyness of life to find some rest and refreshment. Together, we’ll explore the art of tea and mindful living.  We’ll prepare and savour a range of organic Japanese teas carefully crafted in Uji, Japan. You will also learn how to use and care for tea ware and make a nourishing bowl of matcha. A mindfulness workshop with a difference, we explore how everyday routines like preparing tea can nourish both body and mind when done with intention.

  • Experience the spirit of 茶道 Chado (The Japanese Way of Tea)
  • Make a nourishing bowl of matcha green tea using traditional tools and techniques
  • Learn about the unique health benefits of matcha and mindfulness
  • Participate in a mindful tea practice

We will gather at The Medicine Wheel in Bondi Junction. The Eagle Room is a welcoming space filled with natural light. It features hardwood floors and a high ceiling.

Your host:

Kelsey has been making connections with Japan for over a decade, beginning with language and culture studies. Many deep friendships have been formed in Australia and while travelling to Japan. While living in Kyoto, she found the way of tea and started on a path of life-long practice. The tea room provided her with the refreshment she desperately needed at this time. The practice of tea continues to cultivate deep connections with nature, others and herself. Her mission is to help people have a tea room experience and find moments of rest and refreshment through a bowl of tea.
