Here's a link to an article in Asian Connections Magazine about a Tealchemy party in Montecito some years ago. It was a benefit for Bhakha Rinpoche's stupa for world peace which has been completed and will be consecrated this summer in Zuni, New Mexico.
If you are in Michigan please join us in the opening party celebrating one of the largest murals of Buddhist art in the country.
The tea party will be sublime: five ice sculptures of the Buddhist Goddess Tara will be placed on a mandala shrine. The images will be enlivened by the intentions and prayers of Tsochen Khandro and Traktung Khepa, and then the melted ice water will be boiled and made into rare oolong tea for all to enjoy. Music, food and celebration will ensue.
