About the event

There is a beautiful synergy between tea and wilderness. Individually, both have the potency and power to offer insight, healing, and restoration. When brought together - drinking good tea whilst immersed in wilderness - the encounter can be unlike any other experience. The vastness of the natural world around you, balanced energetically with the embodied presence of tea within you.

On this tea journey we will be hiking into the Salmon Huckleberry Wilderness and brewing tea together among the trees.

The Hike:

  • A beautiful and gentle 3-mile hike through an ancient but lively old-growth forest.
  • Take respite from city life and allow yourself to be enveloped in Oregon's 62,000-acre Salmon Huckleberry Wilderness.
  • Sit alongside a crystal clear creek and share tea in the wilderness.

The Tea:

  • Experience rare and aged Chinese teas prepared in the gongfu style.
  • High quality teas are unrecognizable from what's at the grocery store. When grown, processed, and stored with care, the tea plant reveals itself as a powerful plant ally, a vibrational medicine for the human mind, body and spirit.
  • Some types of tea (puer and some oolongs) improve with age - particularly their Qi or energetic qualities. For this event we will be brewing several exceptional teas, including a speical ancient-tree puer.

"The more we can relate to the spirit of the plant, such as tea, the more it will teach us. As with all in Nature, the more we learn to listen, the more nature speaks. Tea at its core is the art of listening." -Po, Heaven's Tea School of Sacred Tea Arts

After tea there will be time to practice some basic mindfulness and/or forest bathing, or just be with yourself in the forest. I will offer some light intruction or you can follow your instincts about how to spend your time with the land.
