  • Cha Dao~ Way of Tea
    Zen Tea Ceremony
    Sun 26th May 2024 09:45
    £12
    Cha Dao is an ancient Chinese practice, discovered by Daoists and Sages. Tea has been used in many Temples and Monasteries as a form of medicine and a way to cultivate awakened presence, sustaining long states of meditation.
    Tea is a plant teacher, a spirit of nature, manifested through this leaf and awakened by hot water. Used in ceremony, it is a dance between the elements, a sensory exploration of presence, where everything is connected to space.
    Tea meets us exactly where we are and gives exactly what is needed. Every ceremony is unique unto itself.
    Please pre-book as we have a maximum of 8 warm bowls. We will be either sitting around a table or on the floor, please inform me of your preference upon booking. We advise you to bring along a shawl or blanket. To book text Chajin Claire on 07881633773.

  • Empowering girls in India
    Natalie Heuter
    Tue 8th Oct 2024 19:30
    £4; under-16s free
    During April and May 2024, Natalie volunteered in the ancient town of Anegundi, Karnataka, India, teaching on the Anegundi Empowerment Project's Summer Camp for young children, and tutoring aspiring young teachers. Natalie is an English Language Teacher (CELTA) living in St Dogmaels.
    Prior to leaving, she mobilsed the Anegundi Fundraising Team who raised £2500 to fund college/university scholarships for girls in the village. Girls in Anegundi rarely go onto middle school or college, as they come from low caste (dalit) families who are extremely poor. Their average wage is $15 a month which means funding girls as well as boys through college is impossible for most of them.
    Her Team's fundraiser gathered enough money to sponsor five girls through college (including fees, transport, books and accommodation). (You can still donate!)
    This evening she will recount her experiences and talk about the Anegundi Empowerment Project and her future plans.
