Noon - 5pm: Traditional Chinese Tea Pouring
A meditative art that you can take in with all your senses: watching the steam rise, hearing the tea fall into the cup, smelling the tea leaves, tasting the tea and experiencing its effect on your body and mind. Add flower essences to your tea and notice how this calming experience invigorates your body.

Includes: 10-minute tea pouring with Frank Banuelos, who traveled to Taiwan and has a daily tea practice. Your own subsequent pours will generally require about 30-60 minutes.

A special opportunity to experience the smoke offering. An auspicious + transformative experience, it’s specifically designed to remove obstacles from your life + catalyze prosperity, longevity + happiness.
