Please bring: a vegetarian potluck item to share, cutlery, plate and cup (we will also have paper ones), an umbrella or raincoat (if it rains as we’ll do the walk outside), a blanket or sheet to lie down on for total relaxation. If you prefer you can also bring a folding chair if you like to sit on a chair.In addition, for the tea party, please bring a poem, a song, a story, a skit, a short quote, or an object that inspires, represents or has meaning to your mindfulness practice. We’ll be sharing together during our tea party. If you come and forget any of these things, don’t worry at all. You are most welcome to join as it fits for you.
