Mindfulness While Making Tea

January 6, 2010 at 2:34 pm 1 comment

Prepare a pot or cup of tea for yourself.  Do each movement slowly, in mindfulness.  Do not let one detail of your movements go by  without being mindful of it.  Know that your hand lifts the pot by it’s handle.  Know that you are pouring the fragrant warm tea into the cup.  Follow each step in mindfulness.  Breathe gently and more deeply than usual.  Take hold of your breath if your mind strays.

~ Thich Nhat Hahn The Miracle of Mindfulness
