Lhasha’s Book & Meditation CD

Tea Here NowMeditation CD. My self-produced CD is entitled Meditations with Lhasha. It features two meditations — “Mindfulness Meditation” and “Lovingkindness Meditation.” You can email me to order it; the cost is $12 plus shipping.

Book. My book  Tea Here Now: Rituals, Remedies, and Meditations by Donna Fellman and Lhasha Tizer is available through Amazon. It demonstrates how tea and the simple act of preparing a cup of tea can give drinkers a taste of enlightenment. Written for the average person who wishes to infuse accessible, uncomplicated spirituality and mindfulness into his or her tea drinking, the book explores the health benefits, spiritual practices, and lifestyle-enhancing properties associated with the world’s major blends, in the process creating a practical guidebook for the “tea lifestyle.” Topics include the little-known history and mythology of tea, the health benefits, information on tea blends, tips and techniques for brewing the best cup, spiritual and meditation practices that complement and enhance tea drinking, practical ideas for carrying the spirit of tea into all aspects of one’s life (relationships, business, mental health, etc.), old and new rituals to bring meaning and enjoyment to tea drinking, food pairings for tea, and inspirational quotes.
