  • Hello Lovely People,

    Join me for tea! We will be meeting a little later than usual so as to take advantage of afternoon tea which is served at 2:30. So have afternoon tea with sparkling wine! Or just enjoy the regular menu or just a cup of tea.  We will be practicing listening-----really listening. What does this mean? It means allowing others to speak without interruption and without offering advice. So each of us will have an opportunity to speak and we will just listen without giving feedback. This act of listening without thinking of a response or advice allows one to concentrate on what a person is saying and be very present. As you are present to what someone is saying, you are practicing mindfulness.  It's meditation!

    So..... Come join us for tea in a laid back environment.
