The divine is all around us, calling us to see and taste it for ourselves.
We can find our deep truth and purpose while we are on the way to the grocery store or struggling to make a marriage work.
We can find beauty while we go through a TSA checkpoint or walk along any sidewalk.
We can feel gratitude sitting in a waiting room or forgiving ourselves for one thing we didn’t get done.
Love is where the temporal and the eternal meet. The love explored in this writing is love that feels practical and specific. It is the kind of love that moves from ideals into practices that take on flesh and bone.
Practically Divine is not an oxymoron. It is as poetic as being optimistic in the midst of depression or as vital as sitting in silence with a friend who can’t take any more advice. It is both and, not either or.
Practice might not lead to perfection, but it will lead us closer to love.
The Way of Tea and Justice
While tea has helped usher in economic and spiritual growth in its 3,500 year history, it has also been part of the oppression of women. It’s tied to the mission of Thistle Farms through the stories of the oldest forms of human trafficking, trading of opiates in China, and sexual violence in the fields of India.
But tea has a noble story too, as its rituals and symbolism are great companions for cultivating justice. Whether being dumped into a harbor, served by Gandhi as he negotiated freedom, or fundraising for the Women’s Suffrage Movement, tea has played a part in every revolution since the 1700s. Tea creates an environment of rituals, offering dignity and creating dialogue.

I ordered items for my sister for a late Christmas gift and she absolutely loved it. I was gifted the body butter and a lovely soy candle at Christmas and loved it as well. I wanted my sister to experience the items as well.
I loved this book so much. I believe in the power of love and healing. Thank you for what you are doing to help women that deserve love. You have a life time fan and supporter in me. God bless you all.
I WAS THRILLED WITH MY COPY OF LOVE HEALS. I HAVE ORDERED A NUMBER OF COPIES FOR FRIENDS AND COLLEGUES. I HAVE A NIECE WHO HAS WORKED WITH TRAFFICKED WOMEN FOR MANY YEARS, ESPECIALLY IN INDIA. SHE FINDS THE BOOK TO BE A REAL TESTAMENT FOR HEALING. I WILL CONTINUE TO ORDER MORE COPIES. - IMMENSE APPRECIATION FOR WHAT YOU DO!
