Tea Demonstration and Lecture on Mindfulness
One of the great parts of my job is being able to plan customized private events for various clients. This particular client wanted to plan a "Mindful Tea" event for her employees and guests. The class began with a lecture on mindfulness and techniques to use to stay present and in the moment. One helpful tip is to focus one your breathing; close your eyes and count every breath and each time your mind strays to a different thought, being counting over again. The second part of the event featured Lynette from Pacific Place Tea Garden. She taught the guests how to incorporate tea into their every day and how tea can contribute to mindfulness. Everyone left feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.
My main tasks for this event included setting-up, making sure the transition between both instructors went smoothly, serving, and taking photos.
