The taste of tea and zen are one and the same. “Traditionally in China and Japan, drinking a cup of tea was an opportunity

for and an elevation of mind and spirit.”  William Scott Wilson

Stressed is desserts spelled backward!

We like to say stressed is 

(spiritual) desserts spelled backward.

  Thank you for visiting the funzen bakery. Grateful to serve your spirit a little food for thought, 

virtual sips of tea, spiritual espresso tips, and soul treats.

Open your Heart. Empty your Cup: aka Leave your ego at the door.  When our cup is empty we recapture the child-like ability to learn mindfully with a beginner’s mind. I teach the inner mechanics to reach excellence by gaining mastery of the fundamentals. In Japanese, the word for black belt is “Shodan,” in translation, this means “first step” and embodies the zen mind, beginner’s mind of a lifelong learner.  Now, I have learned enough to really begin learning.  Training to shift from a worrier to a warrior, when we’re under pressure, is becoming part of the solution to earn a black belt for your soul.  Never stop learning. Simply put, ‘It’s what you learn after you know it all that counts.” John Wooden

One Move with Many Blessings!

Hope you enJOY our short FunZen girls tutorial video (below) on how to activate the Miracle Diamond of Mindfulness

to feel the spiritual element of balance which is love. Love embraces and uplifts us to stay on point (live on purpose).

Our Mindful Posture Tool only takes one move (dual action) to effortlessly take us from Slouch to Stretch!

1)  Lifting up takes you there (inner ribcage lift).

2) Lacing up keeps you there (engage core).se 

Mindful body-awareness keeps us anchored in the present moment. The instant we catch ourselves slouching (we all do) we can lift right under the breastbone (or wishbone) and magically shift from slouch to stretched, centered, strong and stress-free like a deeply rooted tree.
