Start Your Own Tea Practice was so beautiful and it’s something I didn’t even know I was looking for because it was so much deeper than what I ever could’ve expected. Tea feels like an invitation. When I’m looking over at my teaware I hear her whisper, “come over here, be with me…you’re my friend, I want to hang out. We’re in this.” I did not expect the depth that comes with tea. It’s such a gentle space to be held, but the communication that comes through while I’m sitting with tea is so clear & beautiful and perfect. I just trust that feeling so deeply in a way that I don’t get with other practices.
