Spring Equinox Tea Ceremony and Grief Circle

March 19, 2020

**Due to recent guidance from public health authorities, we have decided to cancel this event for the health and safety of our guests and staff. Thank you for your understanding.

We hope to be able to schedule our next tea ceremony for the summer solstice in June. If we do, we will post information on this website.

About this event

Life is filled with transitions and losses, and grief often accompanies them. Yet little space is set aside to acknowledge and process this powerful emotion.

On this special threshold day, come experience a silent, meditative Tea Ceremony where grief is welcomed, in one of the most beautiful and sacred spaces in our city — the Lakewood Memorial Chapel.

The ceremony will be offered at two times on the Spring Equinox, Thursday, March 19, 2020: 4:30-6:00 p.m. and 6:30-8:00 p.m. Cost is $35* + sales tax and service fees.

Your guide, Christin Ament, provides grief and end-of-life support as a palliative care, hospice provider and death celebrant. She was trained in Taiwan by Buddhist Monks on Cha-Dao, the art of Tea, and has led tea ceremonies around the globe.

Please bring a journal for post ceremony reflection. Dress comfortably and come as you are.

This event is part of the Lakewood Experience Series, a series of events and activities that are intended to encourage and support personal reflection and creative expression.
