Tea Time Meditation - Deidre MadsenThe Importance of The Moment - Time for Tea

Stopping in for tea during our busy lives is important. We often forget ways to relax and contemplate life. We would benefit from reevaluating our priorities and incorporating ways to relax. The good news is this is happening more and more.We are seeing Eastern methods of relaxation techniques with yoga and tai chi as well as all the tea offered in conjunction with the abundant coffee shops. Hopefully this is a reflection that we are trying to become more Zen-like.

Tea for Two & Two for Tea...

When sharing tea with friends we share the day's lovely or sad moments, laugh and perhaps shed a tear or two. Tea and sympathy.

You can discuss anything over tea and crumpets. - Michael Capp

Let's take a lesson from our British, Russian, Asian and Indian friends and take time for tea; I mean really do it - take tea. Let us not lose another precious moment .

Healthy Tea

Let us also remember the many health benefits of drinking tea. Herbal, black and green teas are Mother Nature's remedy for our maladies. A soothing cup of tea neutralizes 'free radical' agents, which can damage cells and lead to disease. Flavonoids, (contained in tea) also have a role in preventing heart disease by lowering cholesterol. And some property in tea appears to help the brain 're-deploy' from one task to another refreshing the parts even caffeine cannot.

tea leaf reading tasseography Tea Time Meditation - Deidre MadsenTea Leaf Divination - Tasseography

Ahh, now... you have savoured your cup of darjeeling tea, nibbled a lemon curd-dipped cranberry walnut scone, and have taken a moment to contemplate life. Hmm.

To complete the moment, consider the ancient art of tea leaf reading. Like identifying shapes in an azure blue sky's clouds, tea divination gives us a chance to gaze into our emptied cup with our thoughts focused on a single question.

Tasseography is a divination or fortune-telling method that interprets patterns in tea leaves, coffee grounds, or wine sediments. As you go through our step-by-step guide, as Professor Sibyll Trelawney states in her Divination Class at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, remember to "Broaden your minds, my dears, and allow your eyes to see past the mundane!"

  • Allow for one spoonful of tea and sediment at the cup's bottom
  • Think of your question
  • Swirl your cup gently
  • Tip over onto saucer
  • Right the cup and whatever is nearer you is your immediate future, toward the bottom of the cup is further into the future

Do you see a symbolic answer in your cup?

tea mice bar Tea Time Meditation - Deidre Madsen

In my own hands I hold a bowl of tea; I see all of nature represented in its green color. Closing my eyes I find green mountains and pure water within my own heart.
Silently sitting alone and drinking tea, I feel these become a part of me.
- Soshitsu Sen, Grandmaster XIV, Urasenke School of Tea

green tea ceremony Tea Time Meditation - Deidre MadsenJapanese Tea Ceremony

At the center of the Upper East Side town house where the Urasenke tea school is located, there is a garden surrounded by tearooms. A skylight creates the impression that it is outside — and a world away from the city streets. One of the innovations made by Sen Rikyu was requiring all visitors to the teahouse to enter from the garden through a small crawl space — making everyone equal, whether a shogun or a peasant.

The ceremony features intricate performances as the tea is prepared, and a thick tea ceremony can last as long as four hours. During a thick tea ceremony, there is silence. At a thin tea ceremony, talking is permitted, but only about the ceremony itself.

“There is no politics,” Mr. Yamada said. “No talk about who will be president in America or prime minister in Japan.”

While a tea ceremony might seem out of step with the pace of modern life, the Urasenke school has a waiting list for students. “Once you begin the study of tea, it becomes a lifetime thing,” he said. As for those who think they are too busy to make time for tea, “You discover that you are not as busy as you think you are.” - Hisashi Yamada, certified tea master Source

TGI is a state of lucid daytime dreaming mindfully accessing your inner vision and right brain.

We bypass your logical left brain’s past/future limitations so your cognitive thoughts don't interfere.

Using your body's CSF (cerebral spinal fluid) we access your own unlimited source of DMT (N-Dimethyltryptamine) for tremendous LUCID HEALING.

Your psyche (subconscious) takes over in the session... i.e., instead of me guiding you, your psyche assumes the controls and YOU guide ME.

You're in control and can effectively achieve full head-to-heart healing.
