By sharing our experiences and stories in community we diminish fear, find fellowship, gain new understanding, and nourish our sense of well being.<strong>Why is it called Tea Talks?</strong> Throughout my life hard conversations have been eased by a nice cup of tea and a little something yummy to go with it. Having hard conversations is easier when we create a warm, trusting and comfortable space and soothe our senses.<strong>Join us</strong> as we explore old and new ideas, around conscious living, aging, grief, death and dying. Find support and community, explore how you can support yourself and your loved ones in challenging times of life-transitions, experience personal growth, reduce fear and increase connection by focusing on the shared human experience.[/av_textblock][av_hr class=’custom’ height=’-30′ shadow=’no-shadow’ position=’center’ custom_border=’av-border-thin’ custom_width=’45%’ custom_border_color=” custom_margin_top=’30px’ custom_margin_bottom=’30px’ icon_select=’yes’ custom_icon_color=” icon=’ue8bf’ font=’entypo-fontello’][av_heading tag=’h3′ padding=’0′ heading=’Sacred Circles’ color=” style=’blockquote modern-quote’ custom_font=” size=” subheading_active=” subheading_size=’15’ custom_class=”][/av_heading][av_textblock size=” font_color=” color=”]<br /><strong>Awaken to more…</strong>Join us for a shared journey aimed at enriching our human experience with insights into the heart, mind and soul.
