Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the world earth revolves — slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future. ~Thich Nat Hahn
Mindful Tisane Rituals are an invitation to nourish and balance the body and mind. It can allow you to feel present, calmer, connected within yourself and those around you.
Being in the moment of preparing and brewing Tisane, allows you to enjoy a more enriched experience that will invoke all of your senses.
ENGAGE YOUR SENSES
Feel your sit-bones sitting on the floor or chair, ensure your room is comfortable, an area you love to be in, feel the warmth of the cup, and your Body sensations giving rise to conscious feelings.
Gently inhale the aroma of the tea. Allow thoughts and memories to rise, accepting as they move through, be the observer of all that comes up.
Let your gaze be gentle, passively taking in all there is to see
Saviour the taste, let in linger in the mouth, honouring each plant and its healing properties
This whole ceremony can be done in silence, notice the sounds around you or with music, be mindful and curious as to what this brings in.
Take time to give gratitude for all that served in this experience and journey that united you and this Tisane. .
