Intimacy With Nature

Rewilding our heart connection through daily practice

Women's Retreat
March 23rd-27th in Kauai

Join myself and Kelsey Barrett as we gather together on the beautiful north shore of Kauai to cleanse our senses and elevate our receptivity through daily practice. Upon waking, we tune into being, and reconnect to the fundamental heart space of intimacy with our present moment. Through daily tea ceremony, sensory meditations, and ayurvedic based wellness practices, we open our hearts and clear our minds to deeply listen to messages from the natural world. We will explore the pristine nature of Kauai and connect to the ancient spirit of her land with a traditional water ceremony and a visit to a local tea farm. These combined experiences will enhance our ability to access the pleasure that arises in embracing nature as an extension of the self. Reawakening to our perfect expression as the elemental world

Tea + Tattoo Collaboration // London

  • London Tea Club

Collaborative offering in London with traditional hand poke Tattoo artist Talia Migliaccio

++++
For thousands of years cultures all over the world have marked times of growth with rites of passage and ceremony. Our intention in this collaboration is to bring an awareness back to the importance of marking turning points in our lives consciously.

This is a personal ceremony and journey with the Self. We are here to witness this point in your life, utilizing our gifts as support to your transformation...

I will open the ceremony with Tea and silence, taking time to bring us all into the present moment, creating a space for harmony with the elements and each other. From there I open the space for us to all share reflections. Before we move into looking at symbols and placement, I will invite you to set intentions for what is relevant to your present moment growth or shift. Talia will then begin the artful process of working with symbols and markings, solidifying your intentions, and move into tattooing by traditional hand poked method.

Every ceremony is completely unique and different, though we have generally found it to be a deeply nourishing space for release, recognition, and reclamation.

We are also open to holding space for intimate couples, sisters, etc. If you are curious about sharing this ceremony with another, please let us know. 

For inquires please emails www.tattooandtea@gmail.com

Of Light // Reykjavik, Iceland

  • Tjarnarbio Theatre

I will be serving silent Tea ceremony in the Tjarnarbio Theatre on July 22nd an hour prior to the premiere "OF Light". Please join me between 7:30-8:30pm and then stay to see this incredible performance offering...  Details and ticket link below

"American artist Samantha Shay will premiere an original performance called OF LIGHT at Tjarnabio in Reykjavik, Iceland. The project was developed over several workshops in and Iceland after Shay traveled to Iceland for what would be the first of many. The extremities of the quality of light in the country sent her on a personal exploration of light and dark as representations of personal initiation, and how human beings are light bearers. Coincidentally, Shay created the piece based around a poem by Danielle Vogel, called A Library of Light, which was written on the cliffs of Arnastapi around the same time. As the piece developed, celebrated performance artist Marina Abramovic was drawn to Shay’s ideas for this project; particularly the human body as a light source, and how the human voice, both invisible and perceptible, could be a representation of light. This mentorship deepened Shay’s process, and the piece evolved from conventional devised theatre to a durational incantation of celestial rhythm, performed almost entirely in darkness, enveloping the audience in sound from all sides; creating Shay’s riskiest and aesthetically unprecedented offering in her young career (she turns 27 this June).

Teaming up with musicians KA RYYN, who composed original choral and electronic pieces, Paul Evans, who helms Sound Engineering and Sound Design, and Nini Julia Bang, who incorprorates and performs traditional music originating from Kurdistan, Georgia, and Sardinia, Shay has made sound the connective tissue of the piece, rearranging and challenging the value system of our kinaesthetic awareness in live performance. The piece also includes musical performances from Bedroom Community artist Jodie Landau, and New York based actor and vocalist Emily Jackson."

Heartbeat of the Mother Retreat

5-DAY WOMEN'S RETREAT
Facilitated by Mila Redwood & Baelyn Elspeth

Join us for our annual women's retreat, as we journey into the heartbeat of the earth. Nestled in the ancient cedar forest, we will gather in a Circle of Creation to make our own drums, coming home to the rhythm of our heartbeat. Together we will honor the spirit of deer and red cedar tree, offering our gratitude to the bountiful earth for bringing our drums to life. Each participant will paint her own drum frame, prepare her own hide, and step through the portal of creation to awaken the power of song within. 

Together we will share a journey of rhythm and song, beginning with our offering to the spirit of deer and red cedar tree, the two earth-materials that are used to make our drums. We will paint, weave, and create our drums in Circle, as we share songs and stories, remembering our ancient ways. In the evenings, we will gather around the fire to weave our voices, inviting and igniting the power of song within. Each morning, we rise to the grounding ceremony of tea, sharing our intentions for the day ahead. On our final night, we bring our drums to life, connecting the rhythm of your drum to the heartbeat of Mother Earth.

For more information and to register, visit us here.
