Traditional Tea Ceremony & Pipe Ceremony
April 23, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT
Join us for 2 great ceremonies in one! This will be the first event this year held in our 24ft tipi, encircling a firepit.
We will begin with a Traditional Tea Ceremony hosted by Kristen. We will be drinking ceremonial grade tea (Tea plant, Camellia Sinensis), while steeping in community and meditation. The tea ceremony sees the simple task of preparing a drink for a guest elevated to an art form, an intricate series of movements performed in a specific order.
This event is great for someone that struggles with meditation, as people find it easier to slip into meditative states with tea. Along with being deeply relaxing it’s also a joyful ceremony to be accompanied with music and poetry. Join us as we bring in the new season.
The Tea Ceremony will be Followed by a Pipe ceremony; following Anishinaabe traditions. There will likely be several pipe carriers sharing their pipe, traditions and experiences as they traveled the red road. The pipe is loaded with tobacco and other local herbs. There are no drugs in the pipe. The pipe will be passed and each person will have the opportunity to pray with and (optionally) smoke it.
Space is limited so a RSVP is required.
