Tea Ceremony with live Soothing Sound Bath Journey
Saturday, 21st September, 18:30-21:30, Amsterdam West
This is a perfect way for an overworked body and busy mind to slow down and be at peace.
After this session you will leave more serene with a deeper understanding of yourself and be more in touch with your surroundings.
For this mindful and ancient 𝐓𝐞𝐚 𝐂𝐞𝐫𝐞𝐦𝐨𝐧𝐲 (‘Cha Dao’ 茶道, the way of nature through tea), Leila will present specially selected tea (medicine pu’er) and guide you through a tea meditation that cultivates mindful process and fluid flow in a harmonious atmosphere that connects us deeper, and improves our taste and all the senses, health and soul. This way of tasting and appreciating tea has been around for thousands of years rooted from China, now together we wish to experience and integrate those ancient wisdoms into a more mindful daily lifestyle, here and now.
Firstly Leila will guide us through an ancient ceremony of drinking a tea. This will be followed by intuitive singing, instruments such as quartz crystal singing bowls, chimes, ocean drum, Shruti box and gong will be played around the body.
For some of the participants it feels like a big weight is taken off their shoulders or the feeling of having been put back into one piece. Some felt the vibrations reached deep inside their body helping to release tension. I have received feedback from the previous groups that it helped them with their clenched jaw, upset stomach, sleeping difficulties and in general it has been described as a very grounding experience.

Sound healing and Sound baths in groups can enable and guide us into a deep trance moment of being. Much akin to lucid dreaming, it is a very present state a right here and now, moving between being firmly grounded yet travelling through the ether like substance of our subconscious. We ourselves as well as everything around us, is at its core in constant vibration.
Sound healing, wave by wave brings us closer to that state of calmness and feeling of completeness that every human longs for in their journey of life. One of the big advantages of the session is unlocking a creativity.
I treat sound sessions as sound ceremonies. To me it’s about a unique experience where you are guided by the sound, their vibrations and frequencies. I combine my range of instruments with my voice through singing and chanting.
