Celebrating 2018’s Month of Tea 

Sip For Peace

 

 

No one alive has experienced global peace. There is no shared vision or language.
Tea has the potential to empower individuals to reclaim a personal sense of peace and inspire a vision of what could be.
We can share a simple practice . . . Sip for Peace.

During the month of January, we will share 31 days of:

  • Daily Personal Meditation for Peace

  • Virtually visit 31 tea growing regions

  • Meet the “Flavor of Peace”

  • Host a “Sip In”

31 Daily Meditations

Blending the spirit of tea and the way it connects the people of the world with visions of world peace. Daily offerings by writers, teachers and philosophers in the worldwide tea community will be part of each daily email. Experience the philosophy, poetry, music, art and personal experiences that have made the tea leaf – Camellia sinensis – a messenger of peace for thousands of years.

31 Growing Regions

Meet the people around the world who grow and craft your tea.  Discover places in the world you never knew existed. Learn what life in remote tea growing regions is like. Take this opportunity to experience the entire planet as your own neighborhood. And then share the flavor of a peaceful world, preserved and shared through this tiny leaf.

Personal Practice:

Take a short time-out to sip a cup of tea and imagine a world without war.

What would that feel like in your own life?  How might it change your work?  Your Family?   Your sense of safety and security?
