New Moon in Cancer Virtual #BYOT Tea Ceremony
Time & Location
About the Event
The moon is cycling back to Cancer, making this the second New Moon in Cancer since June. In astrology, Cancer is ruled by the Moon. With the New Moon it is a time to set intentions and review what is no longer serving in our lives and discard the old. Deep dive into the water elements of this Cancerian energy, a zodiac sign that is the embodiment of motherly care, love, and familial bonds. In this ceremony we honour our relationships to all our loved ones and the most sensitive spots in our soul, allowing Tea to take Her course and gently open up your heart.
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.
