Synergy / With the new year comes golden opportunity to bridge with others. Its been a long dream of mine to have collaborative partners in art and ceremony. For years, I have compiled ideas and projects and I realize I can't possible go it all on my own. With synergy, outreach and capabilities multiply. And so I am honored to share that dear @honeybeetemple and I will be co-leading a workshop at Spirit Weavers Gathering 2016. During the Sun Session (June 2-6), we'll be pouring bowls of tea and sharing our daily practice of tea and creativity with the intention to inspire other women to design and begin a daily practice of their own. Ticket registration for the gathering opens on January 9, 2016, 10a PST, and sells out quickly.

Tea + Creativity– Nurturing a Daily Practice / Together we will explore ways to weave tea into your creative practice. Just as tea ceremony begins with a kettle of still water, we will begin by stilling our body, mind and spirit. We will sit quietly in the forest and share Tea with one another, receiving & honoring the many silent gifts of the practice. As the energy of Tea awakens our bodies, we will gently flow into mindful movement– you will be guided through a unique meditative process of binding a simple leather journal to use in your daily practice. During the second portion of class, we will explore different varieties of tea, tea ware and styles of preparation, as well as pathways for a daily practice. We will again prepare tea and engage in a creative exercise using mixed media to fill your new journal. There will be time to share your inspiration with the group. We will close the sacred space by honoring the spirit of Tea and the time we shared with one another. You will be given a take-home guide full of inspiration and resources to help water the seeds of your personal practice.
