Tea Gung is a practical and fascinating way to cultivate a deeper, more conscious relationship with your daily tea drinking ('Gung' meaning 'work' in Chinese).
When we become more in tune with the natural world and its rhythms, we are able to see plants as the sentient, wise, living beings that they are. As this awareness deepens, we can ask the spirit of a plant to support and rebalance our own spirit. It helps us rebuild the bridge that connects us to the living matrix of the earth and away from the artificial, intense and confusing world we currently find ourselves living in.
With the tea plant this ‘work’ is particularly exciting as we have 5 different ‘spirits’ to support us, one for each tea- white, green, oolong, black and pu’erh. The perfect allies to help us stay sane and centred, the Tea Gung pack will attune you to each tea so that you can begin your own joyful reconnection journey.

Traditionally, tea was used for the cultivation of chi when the monks were spending many hours in meditation, in practice and working on the land.
They used the tea to balance their energy levels, gathering it with great reverence and mindfulness because they knew that it contained within it, all that they needed to sustain their aspirations for great insight and understanding.
They could feel it moving through their bodies, its actions purifying the suffering and the torments of the past. It helped to break down the limitations of their minds, so they could achieve great states of awareness through its use. It fortified them when fighting their inner demons and it elevated them so that they could feel the sacredness of life in their hearts.
