Stillness and Tea with Frederic Ballario

February 3, 2019

2:00 pm

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.

Tea Poem:

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…
