If the weather becomes dangerous and we must cancel the trip, you will receive a full refund.
Sacred Living Tea Ceremony with Joy
You will arrive in silence, get settled and we will ground our energies in the space. I will play crystal singing bowls to begin our journey together. We will sit on cushions on the floor (sofa available if needed) and remain in silence while I serve the first 3 bowls of Living Tea. This is an opportunity to let the Tea integrate into the body & move the Chi. I will then welcome you to the space & check in to see how you are feeling in the moment & if you have anything you might feel called to share. As the Tea moves the energy, conversation seems to unfold effortlessly and with a flair towards more conscious topics & less day to day logistics. I will tune in & choose Oracle cards for you if this feels in concurrence with how you are feeling. You are also welcome to choose your own cards. The format flows with the moment & the sharings are free to expand as they unfold. You are welcome to stop drinking at any time, although I do encourage you to enjoy the benefits the Tea has to offer. Time tends to slip away in ceremonial space & I honor the process as it unfolds. A donation to honor the space after 1.5 hours is appreciated with no expectation. Once we feel complete with the our moment in time together, I will close the ceremony & be grateful for your presence. There is an ancient Chinese saying..."drink tea, make friends".
