Full Strawberry Moon in Sagittarius Virtual #BYOT Tea Ceremony
Time & Location
About the Event
The first full moon to occur during the eclipse season, this strawberry moon will be highly charged with the fiery energies of Sagittarius. Known as the Strawberry Moon simply because this is also the time when the lovely red berries ripen, we shall drink Tea that resonates with our sacral chakra and soothes the solar plexus, and feel into our physicality through the moving Qi by drinking Tea mindfully in reverent silence, and honour the stars and the Universe for the drive to roam and explore that is blossoming all around us. We shall lull the restless spirits of Sagittarius and turn up this sign's most venerable qualities.
Social Distancing Update:
Now, as we adjust to these winds of change, we look at serving Tea virtually, instilling stillness and presence of mind across the digital waves [This event will take place on Instagram and Facebook Live, as well as Zoom (link available upon RSVP]. You can still participate by simply finding a quiet corner and sitting in silence with me during the tea ceremony. What you need:
1. A bowl or cup is fine too. Prepare a flask or kettle of hot water. If you have no loose leaf teas around, simply pour this steaming hot water into the bowl/cup and drink in tandem with me.
2. As you sit in silence you begin to become conscious of the Qi the heat is catalysing within you. Continue to sip on the water/tea, and begin to sink into this meditative silence. The more often we partake in ceremony, the easier we find it to sink into meditation and slowly, this meditative pace and appreciation for the simplest things in life will seep into your daily lives.
After the ceremony has ended, I will be opening the floor to reflections, questions, and of course, a chat. The bowls, as they come and go during the tea ceremony, is a symbolic mandala of our connection – as we sit together we drop all egos and identities are simply being ourselves, with the conscious awareness that we are also all individuals who will eventually leave this ceremony to go on with our lives. In this moment, it is my honour to sit and connect us all. In this moment that is all that matters – this very moment.
This ceremony is free for all.
