A Tradition of Tea Ceremony: An Invitation to Love

Updated: Jul 26, 2022

Love is what the universe offers and the sweet joy of a cup of tea how we receive. We are returning to the garden for a magical gathering among the trees, plants and loving powers of spirit with pots of delicious tea, ceremony and friendship. It's time for the divine love and wisdom of a tea circle. We will be hosting an in-person tea circle in the BirdHouse community garden, which will occur in the shadow of this year’s autumn equinox. with Jessica D. Perez, Director of Ed. Development at the BirdHouse representing the community apothecary.

11 a.m. - 2 p.m.

In celebration of this important shift in Gaia’s cycle, we will be sitting in circle, while we sip and meditate with three teas and plant allies who will help us delve into the harvest of our imaginations and the roots of our dreams, as we move into a darker, more fertile time of the year.

Bring your favorite Tea Cup as we honor the Fall Equinox. We will feat. three teas; Passion flower tea to invite our hearts to open, wild cherry and rose for nourishment and Egyptian Blue Lotus for connection.

Our intention for this and every tea circle, is to nurture the inspiration that springs from our mutual exploration into the magnificent world of plants. We hope to create a safe space where we serve, care for, love, support and guide each participant to the plants that may help to unearth their own self-healing ability and deepen their connection to themselves, local community and the natural world. We will end our time together with a delicious potluck and a number of nourishing stories to be remembered and retold for days to come. Email Jessica for details.
