Location:  Counterpart Resource Centre

Tea, nurturing and mindfulness

Tea is a wonderful drink, but it is so much more. It is a way to nurture ourselves, practice mindfulness and bring calm into our day. In our hyper-connected modern lives, we can create room to breathe through the simplicity and mindfulness of the tea ritual. Sarah Cowell has spent time on tea farms, absorbing wisdom from tea masters across China, Japan, Taiwan and Korea. She will share the amazing undiscovered world of specialty tea and demonstrate the steps to create a tea ritual at home.

Acknowledging Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day

Until recently metastatic breast cancer was rarely mentioned during October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month. What is acknowledged can be changed. What is kept hidden and not discussed will not be changed. Since 2009 in the United States, a day (October 13) has been designated to put metastatic breast cancer patients and their needs in front of the public and stakeholders within the breast cancer community. We are commemorating this day at Counterpart on Thursday 12 October with this special session.

All are welcome. Come for the tea session or drop by later for a chat with Counterpart volunteers.
