    Cha Dao Tea Ceremony
    Saturday, 13 January 2018, 4:30-6:30pm
    Cultivating Presence and Inner Harmony through Tea

    Cha Dao, “The Way of Tea,” is a path to cultivate an awakened presence and inner harmony through Tea. A Tea Ceremony is a dance of the five elements, earth, fire, water, air and the Spirit of Tea, coming together to create space for meditation and reflection. As we drink, we are guided and healed from our mind, body and spirit to revive the sacred connection we have with the Earth. When used in ceremony, this deep alchemy leads to an opening for inner transformation and self-development.

    Join Master Wu De, as he brings us on an insightful journey sharing the practice of Cha Dao. Inspired by his studies in martial arts as a youngster, author and teacher, Master Wu De, was led to India on a deep meditation journey, followed by Burma and Thailand and eventually Japan where he studied with a Zen Master. He later went to Taiwan where he currently resides and teaches the way of tea in a Zen Tea Centre, in addition to traveling the world sharing Cha Dao.

    A Teacher & Friend

    Author and teacher, Wu De, is a true Chajin (tea person). He has been a practitioner of Cha Dao (The Way of Tea) for over 20 years, and he has reached over 100,000 people through his writings, classes, workshops, seminars and interviews.

    Wu De knew from an early age that his interests lay to the East. His martial arts practice began at an early age, and led him to discover the wisdom locked inside tea leaves when he was a teenager.

    Upon graduating from university with a degree in anthropology and philosophy, he moved to India, where he lived and worked in a meditation centre for some years. During this time, he prepared tea daily as fuel for his intensive meditation practice, and he laid the groundwork for his later work with tea as a spiritual vehicle.

    Wu De then left India to study meditation in Burma, Thailand and eventually Japan. Working closely with a Zen teacher who often used tea ceremonies as a way of conveying Zen wisdom, his insights into The Way of Tea and the ability of tea to convey deep peace were strengthened.

    After being ordained in the Soto Zen tradition, he began studying gongfu tea under Master Lin Ping Xiang in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Master Lin taught Wu De about how to serve tea with more skill and focus.

    For the last decade, Wu De has been teaching the ancient practice of serving tea from a Zen and tea center in Taiwan, known as Tea Sage Hut. In the last three years, the center’s monthly magazine and organic tea mailing, Global Tea Hut has swelled to connect hundreds of tea lovers and spiritual seekers in over 30 countries. Meanwhile, Tea Sage Hut now houses five long-term students and hosts hundreds of guests per year, sharing The Way of Tea and a more connected way of living and being with each person who joins a tea session there.

    In addition to running Tea Sage Hut in Taiwan, Wu De leads tea workshops and seminars around the world.

    Wu De’s writings have appeared in The Art of Tea Magazine (of which he is the Senior Editor), The Leaf Magazine (a free, online magazine which he founded), Fresh Cup Magazine (a U.S. beverage industry publication) and elsewhere. He has also authored five books, including Tea Wisdom (Tuttle Publications, 2009), The Way of Tea (Tuttle Publications, 2010), Zen & Tea One Flavor (2013) and Tea Medicine (2014).

    Interviews with Wu De have been featured on “Rich Roll Podcast”, Estonia’s Raadio 2 radio station, Malaysian TV and newspapers and elsewhere. Features on Global Tea Hut have been featured in The Huffington Post, Tea: A Magazine and in numerous tea blogs.
