Rush to Hush - Silent Tea for a Better World
When was the last time you turn off the volume knob on life to listen to its eloquence in hush? What have you missed in that rush?
The ‘habit’ of rush is very much ingrained in us. ‘Busy’ is now a socially acceptable response to ‘How are you?’ and synonymous with a sense of worthiness in our society because the antonym seems to be misplaced somewhere in ‘lazy’. But we can be engaged with life in a deeply intentional way without being mindlessly busy – through moments of silence.
Moments of silence incubate genuine self-encounters, and awareness and responsibility to self and others. In silence, the space to ask ourselves "what are the implications of our thoughts, feelings and actions to ourselves and others?" becomes available. That place of stillness within us, away from the hustle and bustle of thoughts and actions, is where we remember who we are, and who we are to each other. And this awareness and ensuing actions make for a happier, kinder world.
That is why Hush, the first silent tea bar in Singapore, and possibly the world, was born.
Hush was founded with the deep desire to bring overworked, overstressed executives from ‘rush’ to ‘hush’ through a cup of tea appreciated mindfully and in complete silence, whilst creating dignified and inclusive employment opportunities for the deaf. We wanted to brew a silence revolution for good.
The Hush Experience is a carefully-crafted 4-zone journey to provide a well-guided and gentle process of bringing you from rush to hush, and then from hush to rush (sorry, you still need to come back to this world!).
The 1st zone is Intention Zone where deaf TeaRistas guide you into a place of positive thoughts through the selection of ‘TeaMoods (original tea blends)’.
2nd is Hush Zone where our TeaRistas facilitate a TeaRitual to help you transition into a space of withdrawal and awareness through silence.
3rd is Expression Zone where you have the opportunity to express your reflections and experience during the silence into tea art made with our tea ink.
4th is Sharing Zone to share our experiences with each other and realise that in silence, we are the same. And we are one because of our diversity.
We lovingly invite you to join us on this journey of mindfulness in silence. A quiet moment by yourself, amid the daily rush. Quiet your mind and your soul will speak.
This session, on 25 Feb, is a very special one. It is the first Rush2Hush of the year, and you will be the first to experience the new SimplyRomantic TeaMood. SimplyRomantic celebrates our relationships, not only with others, but with ourselves. The greatest romance is the love you have for yourself. Only when you love yourself can you love others. SimplyRomantic gives expression to your relationships – with your inner self, loved ones, and your environment.
