Traditional Medicinals ~ Part 2

Finding Peace and Harmony through Tea Time

February 24, 2015 | 4 Comments


Taking those brief moments for ourselves. Yes they can be rare when raising sprites, or running businesses or just simply trying to bring food to the table however; we cannot give unless we receive. I have learned a lot lately about being my own parent, my own love, my own guardian. How do I fill myself up when feeling fragile in the world? I take a moment for a meditative tea in the garden.

We explored Traditional Medicinals a while back, but here is a webisode by Mel Blanchard about finding peace and harmony through tea time. Whether it is a tea to soothe our spirits or one with healthy properties like dandelion and echinacea, tea time can be a cherished moment even if it’s just for 5 minutes in a hectic day.

    This is just what I needed today Shiva!! I’ve been caught up with the house, the laundry, volunteering at school and shuttling my 3 little ducklings to their activities. When did I stop making time to find stillness and quiet for myself? As mother’s we often put ourselves last it seems. Your beautiful garden oasis made me long for spring or a trip to California! Here in Chicago my garden is still under a foot of snow. Thank you for the much needed reminder.
