(Group Ritual- Aug 6) 🍵 Tea Time as a Coven

Very warm greetings to all! :sparkling_heart:

The last two group rituals kindly organized by @Francisco Candle Burning for Hope and Healing :candle: and Moon Water in the Waxing Crescent Moon :droplet: seemed to be a great way to bring everyone together to share our craft!

As the world is struggling through a difficult time and many of us are practicing in isolation, I would like to offer another chance to come together, though apart, to practice together in a group ritual :pray:

This is a simple meditation practice that anyone can do and is open to everyone to join in! :heart:

~Group Tea Time Meditation~

When? Thursday

What will you need? Hot water, tea leaves/bag (or coffee!), and a quiet place to relax

:tea: Tea Time Together :coffee:


Find a quiet place on Thursday to join the ritual :woman_in_lotus_position: .

Focus your energy as you place your tea/coffee leaves or bag into your cup :fallen_leaf: .

Pour boiling water over the leaves and imagine the steam carrying away any troubles, fears, or upsetting thoughts you may have :raised_hand_with_fingers_splayed:

Sit quietly while holding your tea and let the heat seep into your skin and deep into your bones :revolving_hearts: .

Allow this warmth coming through your cup to chase away any fears or sadness that you are carrying inside you- acknowledge these things, then let them go :dove: .

As you sip your drink, imagine the heat you feel as the love and care from your fellow witches, supporting you from around the world :hugs: .

Deep breathly through your nose, hold each breath like a gift, then slowly release it through your mouth, giving back to the world :earth_americas:

When your cup is empty, dispose of the leaves/bag (in an eco-friendly way such as composting if you can!) and feel it as an act of release, of returning the leaves back to their place in nature :seedling:.


:sparkling_heart: Remember that although we may be far apart, we are all together in our hearts! :sparkling_heart:

For anyone interested, I look forward to sharing a cup of tea with you on Thursday :tea::blush:

Blessed Be! :sparkles:

Hooray!!! Oh, I’m so excited to have tea time with you all tomorrow! :tea: :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Feel free to share a picture or write a message here after your ritual is done (and your cup is empty! :yum:)

Looking forward to tomorrow! :pray::two_hearts:

Finding good “chi” (vital energy/life source in some Chinese traditional beliefs) in a cup of tea sounds like a great plan, @wendy4! :coffee::grin: Or, change the last letter in “chi” to make it “cha” and you’ve got the Japanese word for tea- which is indeed very relevant! :laughing: :+1:

I have listening to Herbal Jedi. He is an herbal clinician who shows herbal plants, explains medicinal uses, and is a spiritual human being. I have ordered several of his products. I trust him. His company is Harmonic Arts. He is located in Vancouver Island, Canada.

I gave it a try to making incense following Daniels’ tips in Making your own Incense so I already had some herbs (mint, thyme, laurel).

And decided to add the Hexagram, the “intertwining of worlds”

Which also means: “As above, so below”, inspired by the Latin quote that @krista_moon shared in Microscopic vs Macroscopic recently.

As above, so below!
Blessings, Witches!
