ABOUT TEA CLUB

TEA MAKES EVERYTHING BETTER

The Tea Club is run by the UK Shaolin Temple; it promotes well-being and healthy living through self-discovery. The Tea Club includes various cultural, physical, mindful, social and educational aspects. It involves Meditation, Tai Chi, Qi Gong and Chinese tea culture. The Tea Club provides a key for everyone to discover themselves in their own space. It brings a peaceful environment for people to connect, to share and express ideas, knowledge and experience.

In the Tea Club we are focusing on three main areas, which are cultural, physical and social experiences. We have carefully researched, experienced and designed a programme for everyone to benefit from.

CHINESE TEA

TEA IS A DIVINE HERB

Chinese tea is a beverage from the leaves of tea plants boiled with water, which are ordinarily used for tea in China. Tea leaves are processed using traditional Chinese methods. The Chinese tea is drunk throughout the day, including during meals, as a substitute for plain water for health or simple pleasure.

MEDITATION, TAI CHI AND QI GONG

KNOWING OTHERS IS INTELLIGENCE, KNOWING YOURSELF IS TURE WISDOM

Meditation is a vital practice in studying self-realisation. This is done by raising awareness and receptivity to our nature and what we are capable of. Meditation also has clear health benefits to all people practicing it. The calming of the mind enables people to find peace and reflection, which leads to clarity and direction.

Tai Chi is suited to everyone. Tai Chi is useful for building strength, alleviating illnesses and improving balance and mobility, cultivating your moral character and some believe that it can prolong your life.

Qi Gong allows you to explore your internal and external energy. Students will learn Qi Gong exercises which involve a combination of stretching and breathing techniques in set routines. These sessions are suited to everyone but they are particularly beneficial for people looking to improve their mental and emotional health, mobility and strength. You will find that Qi Gong may help your circulatory system and reduce stress.

SOCIAL – THE COMMUNITY

IF THERE ISN’T A THEM, THERE CAN’T BE AN US

Our Tea Club has a simple aim: to combat social isolation by bringing people together. ‘How does this relate to tea’ I hear you ask? Well, Chinese tea drinking is a world away from just flipping on the kettle. Chinese tea drinking is a highly social activity, and it stimulates lively conversation in a way that is spontaneous and organic. We also supplement the tea drinking experience by discussing many aspects of mindfulness that are found in Chinese philosophy and even undertake some meditation exercises together. We also have an abundance of Chinese culture books to read, games and activities to play, and we will even lead you in some simple Tai Chi exercises to support your physical wellness. Together, these activities bring people together in a dynamic way. Sharing experiences cultivates a sense of community and belonging that is unlike any other human endeavour.
