Tea and Foundations in the Ancient Chinese Oracle
Tea + tea ceremonies are meaningful practices found all around the world. In Chinese cultures, tea and the rituals surrounding tea go back beyond Buddhism, Confucianism, and Daoism, to Chinese shamanism, otherwise known as Wuism. Shamans and sorceresses would pick leaves in the mountains nearby temples, dry them, make them into tea, which were then used during meditation, divination, and sorcery. Tea is plant medicine.
It is from these same roots, that the I Ching (The Book of Changes), the oldest Chinese divination text and philosophical system was conceived. Said to be birthed and used from ~1150 BCE, the oracle still provides inspiration to faith, psychoanalysis, philosophy, agriculture, higher mathematics and quantum physics, law, art and literature.
Join shamanic medicine teacher and ritualist, Mimi Young of Ceremonie and experience the foundation of the I Ching, including the sacred synchronicities of numbers, Yin and Yang mysteries, and the elements according to ancient Chinese shamanism. Understand how these powerful, practical tools can be used to empower and enhance our everyday life. We will integrate the experience with a tea ceremony, led by Sara Jade Gooding of Dharma Temple with prompts by Mimi. Discover how tea is both a conduit and a container for the ancient mysteries of the sacred and the mundane.
Please note that there are 10 spots available for this event.
