~ ~ Thursday, April 29th - A Celebratory Cup ~ ~
Find some time to join in for a tea meditation - an easy and beginner-friendly meditative practice to help you focus your mind and draw in your energies
Although we are physically spread out across the world, it is possible to come together and share our energies and support when we share a quiet moment together.
Let’s enjoy a relaxing and peaceful tea time as a coven- you are warmly invited!
Ready? Let’s begin
Choose your beverage . While tea is the standard, it is perfectly fine to do this meditation with coffee, juice, hot cocoa, or any other beverage
Focus your intent . You can follow any style or type of meditation you choose- focus on your breath and thoughts and be present in this moment
Work some magick! While meditation is a magickal and healing process all on its own, you may choose to add an additional element of magick to your tea time.
(Optional - Apr 29) : A Celebratory Cup
This tea ritual draws on the many fun happenings this week to nurture an aura of celebration and delight. Cheers to the Infinite Roots Coven!
Feel free to indulge in your drink this week! You might celebrate Herb Day with a lovely herbal tea/ flavored coffee, or perhaps pour yourself something stronger . Don’t hesitate to treat yourself to a yummy snack as well- this ritual is meant to be enjoyed!
As you prepare your beverage, perhaps honor International Dance Day by listening to some bright and magickal tunes to help set the mood. The Beltane Fire Dance or any of these Witchy Songs are a great choice
When your drink is ready, swirl it (carefully!) three times in a counter clock-wise motion, thinking back on the good things that have lead you here. Then, repeat in a clock-wise motion, inviniting in novel and positive energy to come
Hold it up with both hands in front of you, and cheers your coven with this simple blessing:
[From Spells8: Quick and Easy Tea Blessing]
Sit comfortably as you sip your tea, focusing on the good things and fun events happening this week. Visualize your plans for Beltane or Samhain, and no matter if you’re dreaming of rituals big or small- feel in your heart that they will be a success
When your cup is empty, wrap your hands around it and end the ritual by saying:
Empty vessel, overflowing heart-
It’s not the end, it’s just the start!
A joyful week is what we’ll see,
With love and light, so mote it be!

After your meditation, welcome back!
When your meditation is complete, you are very welcome to share any thoughts or experiences you had during tea time. Share some pics of your tea, your plans for the rest of the week, or just talk about what’s on your mind today.
Meditation helps to foster a clear mind, increased focus, and boost of positivity- enjoy these good feelings through the rest of your day or night!
Whether you are riding the high of the Full Pink Moon’s energy, celebrating a Sabbat, enjoying the 2-year anniversary of Spells8, or enjoying the positive energy from holidays such as Dance Day and Herb Day- wishing you a very joyous and delightful week!
Looking forward to sharing a warm cup and a full heart with you on Thursday May you be blessed with nothing but bright energy and beautiful smiles in the coming days
Love and Light!
