In this gathering, we combine the simple act of drinking tea with presence practices to develop mindfulness of body, heart, mind, and soul. We grow awareness of ourselves, each other, and the tea we are engaged with to land more fully in the present moment.
Both caffeinated and non-caffeinated tea will be available.
Have you discovered the super powers of tea?
- Not only does it refresh,
- And slow you down,
- And calm your spirits,
- And gently energize you,
But tea also gives you a chance to cultivate mindful presence with whatever you are engaged with.
We will gather, with tea, to turn our mindful and gentle gaze to poetry.
Read, listen to, and savor the singular beauty of each poem, while engaging in a mindfulness process inspired by the sacred practice of lectio divina.
Share tea, a gluten- and dairy-free treat*, and poetry—all in presence-full company.
Bring poems to share related in some way to the Fall theme of letting go…
* Real-food and low added sugar, too!
Thank you for your interest—
to be rescheduled in the New Year!
Do you take mindful time for yourself / yourSelf?
Resting deeply in your true Self is different from watching TV, zoning out with our favorite substance, or cruising around the web.
Resting deeply in your true Self usually includes these attributes:
- slowing down,
- being quiet and/or still and listening deeply within,
- connecting with your individual creative expression,
- being mindfully attuned to whatever you are engaged with,
We especially need this during the holidays!
We will gather, with tea and a gf & df treat*, to rest in ourselves. (*Real food; may include butter.)
We will engage with our creativity, meditate, share, and take time to deeply fill our wells so that we can meet the world with more presence.
