Join herbalist Deb Soule for a gentle guided tea meditation, honoring the elements of Earth, Water, Air, and Fire and the depths of winter that call us inward. This gathering is honoring the lungs of our planet; the rainforest in Ecuador, and Rocío Alarcón’s dedication to protecting the biodiversity of her homeland including hummingbirds, flowers, and water. We breathe in oxygen given freely to us from plants and trees. May we be generous in return for the blessing of breath.
