A 3-day Tea & Meditation Retreat
w/ MJ Greenmountain @ the Jade Valley Tea Arts Nevada City, CA
Friday July 20 1pm – Sunday July 22 1pm
Join us as we take a moment to drop in deeply to our inner original Nature, and share simple and sacred space in a beautiful, unique private Nature sanctuary space just a few minutes outside of downtown Nevada City (or Grass Valley) at the rare, park-like setting of JADE VALLEY, a center for classical tea arts and culture.
We will practice sitting in silence, using breath and awareness, tuning into the wind, the birds, the crickets, the sounds of the river, learn about Zen and Taoist practices, and access an extraordinary private tea collection using real antique Chinese tea cups for ceremonies throughout the weekend.
This is a program for beginners AND experienced alike.
Accommodations (options) and vegetarian meals provided.

On the Jade Valley Property, the luxurious indoor spaces feature Antique Asian furniture, amenities to make your own tea, stocked bathrooms, and plenty of privacy. Stylishly set at the top of the property, these are convenient spaces normally operated as high class Airbnb spaces. The outdoor camp site is super private, and is only a minute’s walk from the main building, though it feels secluded and is very quiet.
