What you'll do

We'll first talk about the practice of zazen meditation, its essence, and origination. Then we'll go inside the zen space and do semi-guided zen meditation for 20 minutes. This is followed by a zen Japanese tea ceremony session, in which you can enjoy a cup of matcha made by me, and experience a hands-on tea making experience. We invite you to spiritually feel the zen behind these ceremonies, where the host and the guest achieve a state of mutual respect and calmness for each other and the environment. This is the traditional form of mindfulness and true beauty of zen.
Other things to note
It would be better for your experience to wear loose, comfortable clothing.

Where you'll be

The zen session will take place on my terrace. I have a specially built zen room on the terrace made in such a way that when you go inside it, the outside world just seems to disappear. It is filled with lots of plants and books to read.
