March Tea with the Abbess

I so enjoyed our Tea with the Abbess session. Since I can’t pour you a cup of tea myself I led a brief meditation on the theme of being kissed by the beloved which was inspired by a poem from Rumi. Then I shared some of our programs for March and answered a lot of great questions. Such a joyful time with our wonderful community. Grateful to the 100 or so dancing monks who showed up live. 

We have a number of resources to support you in your contemplative journey including:
