Now, tea expert Diana Rosen has written a life-affirming guide that teaches twelve distinct ways to combine the pure bliss of tea with the power of personal meditation. Meditations with Tea will show you how you can “de-stress” your mind and body through breathing rituals, stretching, relaxation practices, and mindful concentration on tasks both large and small. The secret lies in complementing these practices with the artful preparation and consumption of tea, one of the most soothing nectars of the natural world.
In thoughtful prose, Meditations with Tea describes how tea creates a symbiotic relationship with meditation because it relaxes the body while keeping the mind alert. Best of all, tea’s therapeutic benefits can last long after the last drop has been consumed.
Meditations with Tea is filled with inspiring quotes and practical ideas for reconnecting with your family, friends, nature, and yourself. It is the perfect gift for anyone who wants to learn how to achieve a natural, much needed respite from the chaos of everyday life, one that is simple, economical, and totally pleasurable.
