On Sunday February 3 at 2 pm there will be a silent Tea ceremony with Frederick Ballario. Frederic studied with his teacher from Taiwan and shares with us the art of stillness and ceremony of tea. I (Lindy) have experienced the ceremony a few times now and I love the stillness and the mastery that he brings to create a magical awareness in the body mind and spirit.

The first cup caresses my dry lips and throat
The second shatters the walls of my loneliness
The third explores the dry rivulets of my soul, searching for legends of five thousand scrolls
With the fourth the pain of past injustice vanishes through my pores
The fifth purifies my flesh and bone
With the sixth I commune with the immortals
The seventh conveys such pleasure I am overcome.
The fresh wind blows through my wings…
