Exploring Subtle Plant Medicines Through Tea with Mike Thompson
- The Fire Room
Experience a moving meditation with tea and explore it's affect on the body and mind. About Mike: I came to explore plants and their affects on the body while studying herbalism in 2013. Around this time I built an interest around the transportation of particular herbs and adaptogens through the mediums of cacao and tea - I ran a raw foods business out of southern Oregon based on this growing interest from 2013-2015. In 2016 I had a deep experience with old growth, loose leaf teas that piqued a further curiosity and exploration. In 2018 I traveled to Taiwan to explore loose leaf tea culture and had the opportunity to explore tea from many cultures in SE Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. I'm passionate about sharing loose leaf tea culture with others, along with it's potential as an effective integration tool.
