In the “Herb Tea Meeting: The 3rd Party” that was held in September, Nilufer Tea met with many people who were anticipating the lovely event during the relaxing Saturday. The theme of this event is “Mindfulness”. Participants get to design their Porsellatz, which is a method of transferring beautiful images (usually of delicate flowers) on porcelain or glass cups. Furthermore, everyone gets to enjoy quality herbal tea to calm their minds and soothe their soul. After all, this is what mindfulness is all about!
What is mindfulness?
Mindfulness is the act of fostering the ability to notice and be aware of your mental and emotional state. ‘What are you feeling?’ and ‘What is my body currently seeking?’ are usually questions that bring oneself into the state of mindfulness. This allows your heart and body to heal from the daily stress of life and allow yourself to concentrate on yourself. Self-love.
There are many activities to ignite mindfulness. Zazen meditation – in fact, almost all forms of meditation! – is only one of them. You get to focus on yourself and reset your life. Getting into the state of mindfulness is a new technique of self-care that helps to reduce stress. It is no wonder that big companies such as Google and Goldman Sachs are trying to incorporate them for their employees.
Mindfulness and Herbs
Close your eyes for 5 minutes and imagine herbs and flowers surrounding you. Breathe in the scents deeply and then look at their gentle colours around you. The aroma and colour guide you to a state of relaxation. Isn’t that wonderful?
Therefore, the event was created. It is meant to allow everyone to relax and destress using herbs and flowers that can be brew into a soothing tea in a beautiful glass cup. Such a feast to the eyes, nose and mouth!
Psychology and Colours
Colours can affect one’s psychology greatly. They have a large influence on people, even if you don’t realise it. Based on the colours that surround you, you inevitably feel them and the moods that they represent and embody. That is why colours are often associated with various positive traits and good vibes:
|pink||Tenderness, calm love, awakening|
|orange||Kindness, association, together|
|yellow||Laugh, Courage, Positive|
|Green||Caring, care, growth, harmony|
|light blue||Self love, freedom|
|Blue||Independence, independence, seeing the truth|
|tea||Confidence, effort, peace|
- Choose a flower or a design that you love.
- Cut the transfer paper.
- Wet the paper with water and paste it on the preferred part of the glass cup.
- Heat the glass. The yellow part of the paper will burn away to reveal a lovely design.
- Enjoy drinking tea from your beautiful cup.
The herb and flower design on the cup makes drinking herbal tea even more elegant and more enjoyable!
The 4th Workshop
In the next workshop, you will learn how to move your pelvic floor muscles to manage menstrual pain and postpartum problems. Herbal teas will be introduced, especially those which can help to warm your body.
Menstrual pain and postpartum problems come about when the pelvic floor muscles become harder and more immobile. These exercises help to improve the following conditions:
- Urinary leak after childbirth
- Severe menstrual pain
- Heavy bottom-half of the body
Even if you don’t have the above condition, you can come join us and learn how to improve your pelvic muscles for better mobility.
