This “hands-on” workshop will explore the rich tradition between poetry and tea, as given by the Chinese poets of antiquity. Participants will explore several poems (in English translation) by poets of the T’ang and Yuan Dynasties, some by Buddhist meditators and monks, extolling the virtues of tea. Moreover, George will share basic techniques of poetic composition, creating a safe space for participants to compose their own poems. Participants will share tea together and explore the subtle effects that various teas (white, green, oolong, and black) have on their consciousness and, thus, on their own writing. A seasoned poetry teacher at all levels for nearly 40 years, George has designed the workshop to be appropriate for both practicing poets and beginners alike. Join us to experience the soothing and rejuvenating effects of tea and explore the poet lingering within you!
