Tea and Tarot Sessions with Jade Rose, Lauren Howie, Shannon Earthtree and others from Mountain Gate Tea House
Seating is limited; please sign up here in advance. This program is free, but donations are welcome.
Tea Ceremony is a perfect elemental art. Silently, we drink tea from ancient trees grown in reverence. In this special space we give the water, fire and tea leaves a chance to communicate with us in their subtle and silent tongue. Old growth trees have been taking in sunlight, rainwater and starlight for hundreds of years. Drinking tea from their leaves in a ceremonial space allows us access parts of our heart which we usually cannot reach.
This practice pairs perfectly with tarot. After the tea ceremony (three bowls of tea in silence), we draw cards for the entire group and then for the individuals present who want personal readings.
Tarot card reading is like looking at oneself through the clarifying reflection of an intuitive friend. In these sessions, you are invited to participate as Jade, Lauren, Shannon and others interpret the tarot cards you draw from their deck. Tarot is not about reading the future or divining destiny. The cards are a set of elemental archetypes so ancient and true that we find ourselves magnetized to those that speak to our present situation.
You will leave this session feeling honored and held in reverence. A practice of tea ceremony and tarot can allow you to feel reconnected to your intuition. The elemental realm is already working on your behalf to create what your higher self desires. When we listen to the heart’s wisdom, we open to following the water course way toward what is in our highest potential.
Jade has been a student of tarot for over twenty years. She is the author of three books on the subject. She has been teaching meditation since she was eighteen. She has found tea ceremony to be one of the most profound and yet easy-to-enter methods of meditation. The tea leaves allow us to quickly drop into a deep heart space of openness and radical truth.
