Yarrow Tea Meditation

It’s a beautiful warm summer evening, no rain for the first time in more than a week. I decided to sit out in the garden while the sun faded, sipping some yarrow and borage tea. I love that these herbs are fresh from my garden. Yarrow has been my prominent plant ally for 3 months now. This magical herb is my companion in forging a deeper understanding of plant medicine and connecting with nature intuitively. These helpful skills have added a profound new dynamic to my herbalism training.

As a tea enthusiast, studying herbalism has made my daily tea drinking ritual so much more of an adventure. I’ve had the greatest experience experimenting with interesting blends of herbs that I pick from the little apothecary garden I’ve co-created with Spirit.

One thing that I love about my tea ritual is that it allows me to imbue a potentially mundane act with meaningful intentions. This week, I was reminded of that when learnt another lovely tea ritual in the Luna Flow e-course that I’m participating in. The ritual involves infusing the energies of the elements and Spirit. Needless to say, I look forward to the mindful pauses to sip herbal concoctions in stillness even more these days.

The opportunities to do simple things like this – to make an everyday activities sacred, however ordinary they may be, leaves me with a soft and grateful heart. Life is indeed what we make of it, and when we bring awareness and appreciation into the moment, anything can become beautiful or significant.
