Very warm greetings to all!
Thank you so much to everyone who joined in on last week’s Group Ritual- Tea Time as a Coven. It was wonderful to share a warm cup of tea and good feelings with all of you
For those who were unable to participate- no worries! I warmly invite everyone for another group ritual this week
The group ritual is a simple tea meditation practice that anyone can do and is open to everyone! All you need is some tea and the desire to participate!

~Tea Time Together~
What will you need? Hot water, tea leaves/bag (or coffee if you prefer!), and a quiet place to relax
Last week we focused on the feeling of interconnectedness- of being together and sharing our love and support across the miles.
Let these feelings we fostered last week come back in this week’s cup, and take some time on build on them. Love for the community is mirrored in love for the self- a theme to meditate on this week is self-care

Are you ready? It’s time for tea!
Find a quiet time and place on Thursday where you can sit peacefully
As you place your tea leaves/bag into your cup be mindful of your every movement. Feel your physical cup in your hands and the echoes of life and nature in your tea leaves
Pour boiling water over the tea and feel the warmth seeping into the leaves and into your hands and body as you cradle the cup
Let the wave of warmth wash over you- imagine it as positive energy. Feel the love and support of the other witches sharing this cup of tea with you today
As you bask in the shared energy of the coven, let the feelings of love and support from your fellow witches help to lift you up
Ask yourself, have I been feeling sad or stressed lately?. Ackowledge those emotions- feel them, hold them, and then- slowly- let them go
With each sip of warm tea, invite in feelings of love, care, and positive energy- try not to judge or overthink about it! Let the good feeling ebb into your bones, replacing any dark feelings and negative emotions
When your cup is empty but your heart is full, take a few moments to think about the positive things in your life, and that as you go about today- you are filled with the love of witches around the world
Today is a great day to take care of yourself, and the world around you! When you are finished with the ritual, dispose of the tea leaves/bag in an eco-friednly way (such as composting) if you can. Allow the leaves to go back to their place in nature

Keep in mind that although we live all over the world, we are close together in our hearts!
I look forward to sharing a cup of tea and good energy with you all on Thursday!
