- Meditate daily on dawn and dusk.
- Attend tea ceremonies by Wu De and have time for group tea practices.
- Enjoy QiGong sessions in nature, and lectures by David Melladew.
- Listen to these two experience teachers lecture on these tree topics, weaving their teachings through each other.

Please note: the retreat will only take place if the Taiwanese and global political situations allow it.
Words from Global Tea Hut
The last four years of Zen and Tea retreats at Casa Cuadrau have changed the lives of so many! Casa Cuadrau is a gorgeous center, built brick by brick with love and light, and going there has become such an important part of our lives that we couldn’t imagine a year without it. It is a part of us now: our sister center, our light and love. Daniel, Katya and the entire staff at Casa Cuadrau understand the meaning of hospitality and the great work of service. The food, accommodations and care are simple, nourishing and held so beautifully.
The hikes in Nature fill the soul with a lifetime of expansive quiet, space, breadth, depth and a deep connection to the natural world all around. The landscapes of this area are breathtaking and hiking every day in silence is life-changing. Daniel is a special guide, as well. He knows and loves the area and is passionate about sharing it with us.
As we move into the historic fifth year of retreats at Casa Cuadrau, we would like to announce a very special year. This special fifth year will be different than all the retreats we have ever done. Even if you have already attended a retreat or a few (Petr), you should consider coming back for this epic year. This year, we are very excited to announce that Wu De will be co-teaching with Dave Melladew once again for a very special retreat of Tea, Zen & Qigong!
The entire ten-day retreat will be held in silence, as previous years. There will still be silent hikes every day, as well as a day-long hike in the middle of the retreat. We will still learn and practice meditation, tea and Zen, as we have in past years, though a bit less. But along with the hikes, meditation, tea and Zen discourses, we are also adding two Qi Gong sessions every morning and evening (outdoors if weather permits), lectures on Chinese medicine by Dave Melladew and one individual, private treatment by Dave, who is also an incredibly gifted Tradition Chinese Doctor, including acupuncture, herbs and dietary advice.
This is the most holistic retreat we have ever offered at Casa Cuadrau and will be similar to the Tea and Qigong retreat offered in Taiwan in September of 2017, which you can read about in the Global Tea Hut February 2018 issue. And with the closing of Tea Sage Hut, this may be one of the only opportunities for a deep tea course this year.
