Connecting with people through tea and kindness
Hi, my name is Bo Wong, I am a Universal Healing Tao Instructor and Tea Ambassador. I’ve been on a deep journey of healing and things started to shift for me in my 30’s as I suffered from;
- Chronic fatigue
- Asthma & eczema
- Constant migraines and a foggy brain
- High anxiety and depression
- digestive issues, IBS and bloating
- Unbalanced hormones
- and more…
Sound familiar? I’ve learnt many holistic health practices that can help you cultivate a better understanding of what it means to be connected to yourself and your own healing pathways. I also have a diploma in holistic nutrition and have been part of the alternative health movement since 2008.
Tea Mindfulness is my digital home, my space to share events, workshops, services and retreats. Please make sure you sign up to my newsletter to be kept up to date and for some inspiring information about healthy living you can incorporate into your own life.
I’m constantly infusing new and old wellness principles and techniques to create a better life that is healthy and limits my impact on the Earth.
I’m a member of the Global Tea Hut community and love sharing tea with the bowl tea ceremony practice I learnt in Taiwan with Wude, they have a wonderful monthly magazine that comes with tea and information about tea (a perfect way to start your tea journey).
I’m also part of the local tea community in Queensland as was the creative director for the BrewIn Tea Festival 2019 where I worked closely with Kym Cooper from The Steepery Co, and also work closely with Fehreen Ali the Ayurvedic Teaologist learning about Tea Rituals and Herbal Tea for Health.
Along with tea I’ve have a foundational practice of Taoist energy meditations which I know you will love too! These practices have changed my life and I know they can help you as your tool for health for longevity too.
The Universal Healing Tao system is a whole living system that encompasses all aspects of life to help keep your body, mind and spirit in balance which will also help you to make better decisions and serve better tea. I love this system by Master Mantak Chia, as the energy meditations and Qigong are so easy to follow and he shares wisdom from the sages that has been used for over 8,000 years. Don’t you want to know how to create your own inner alchemy for more chi and prosperity?
I hold workshops and classes on the Gold Coast and have wonderful tea products in my shop. I invite you to connect and I hope to share a bowl of tea with you soon!
My family immigrated to New Zealand before I was born, it was tough for them and a very different way of living compared to the East. I was a happy baby but from age 3 I suffered from chronic asthma and was constantly on medication and going to the doctors. As a kid I was always that different Asian kid and got very bullied and didn’t have the courage to stand up for myself, so was very introverted and quiet, but I always knew things would somehow be ok.
I spent a lot of time with my grandmother who had to learn English, drive a car and survive after my grandfather died 6 months after they immigrated to New Zealand. My grandma grew up in the country, always grew her own food, made everything from scratch, had a natural understand of Chinese medicine and loved to drink tea.
As I got older things changed and in my 20’s I moved to London where I became a blogger, photographer and graphic designer my life was full of adventures and excitement. During this fast paced lifestyle my asthma got worse, I didn’t sleep well, my skin issues got worse, I had IBS/leaky gut, extreme period pain, memory issues, my anxiety skyrocketed and I used to get 3-day migraines often.
I knew something had to change as I also had all the symptoms of chronic fatigue and felt burnt out. I began my journey towards holistic living after I found a voucher for acupuncture and cupping which I remember my grandma doing when I was little. After my first session I slept for 16 hours straight and then I went down the alternative health route and started to change all areas of my life which also included constant detoxing. Below is a video I did with Marco from Juice Tonic in London and upon filming this I was on a 21-day juice cleanse.
As my journey with health set in and after 9.5 years living in London, I got a message my mum had a mystery illness and I was needed to go to Australia to help her. I got my mum back on the road to wellness through changing her diet and lifestyle and decided to stay on the Gold Coast as the weather is amazing, nature is close and now I have a wonderful family here.
I’m continually studying, growing and strengthening my physical body, home environment, mind, spirit and connection to all things. One of the main things that has helped me to do this has been Taoist Practices and Tea. I know these two easy Eastern practices with help you too!
I would love to share a bowl of tea with you! I hold regular tea inspired workshops and mindfulness classes on the Gold Coast. If you have a space and would like to collaborate let me know.
