TEA & TOUCH
A meditative space to slow down, integrate, reach out to another from a space deep inside. We start off with a silent tea ceremony, a chance to meet the self and Great Nature in the still presence of a powerful teacher plant (tea, camelia sinensis). From this space, we then flow into several guided exercises in conscious touch, fully clothed, to explore what can be sensed from this calm state. A chance to connect with nature wisdom, and to let the inner wisdom then shine though.
Steve Kokker, born in Montreal and living in or near Estonia for many years, has been practicing various forms of touch-based healing modalities for twenty years. The sacred, still place that arises in a space of trust and conscious touch is a temple in which the body engages in its own healing. He also founded and runs Chado, Estonia’s premier tea shop and studies a meditative form of tea ceremony rooted in Zen. Previously, he was a journalist, Lonely Planet travel writer, film critic and psychological counselor.
