Ayurvedic Tea Workshop Ticket
Ayurvedic Tea Workshop Ticket
Ayurveda teaches us that food is the best medicine and that foods have the power to heal. Explore tea blending and Ayurvedic mindfulness practices to bring balance to the mind, body and spirit.
This workshop focuses on blending our own herbal teas, making the healing Ayurvedic drink golden milk/mylk, and Ayurvedic mindfulness practices to calm the mind, body and spirit. Ayurveda teaches us how important it is to imbue to the food you cook with healing energy and that we should have a positive mental state when we cook food for ourselves and our families. When we are happy, the food we cook is permeated with happiness and positivity. Conversely, when we are upset and angry, the food we cook is infused with anger and hatred. We will learn different forms of Ayurvedic meditation along with healing mantras to chant during meditation as well as when we are cooking so that we can create more nourishing food. We will also discover Ayurvedic mindfulness practices that extends meditation beyond just the silent seated practice, allowing our daily actions to be a moving meditation.
This workshop features a hands-on approach where participants will blend their own Ayurvedic herbal teas. The workshop will begin with an mini-meditation to center the body and calm the mind and will be followed by a cleansing ritual for the hands. You will then take a dosha quiz to discover your dosha. Next you will then learn which herbal teas are best for each dosha as well as the medicinal and healing powers of the commonly used herbs in Ayurvedic tea. We will learn how to make tea blends for different mealtimes as well as teas that are beneficial for everyday ailments like headaches, sinus congestion and digestive upset. We will also make the healing drink golden milk together as a group so that you will be able to recreate the recipe at home. You will touch, smell and taste each herb in the used in Ayurvedic tea blending so that you will begin to understand their unique flavor profiles. Afterwards, you will create your own tea blend along with an herbal chai blend so that you can enjoy Ayurvedic tea at home. We will then enjoy some Ayurvedic herbal tea and discuss Ayurvedic meditation and mindfulness practices including the coloring of mandalas. As a group, we will illustrate mandalas together and you will use your mandala as an adornment for your tea packaging.

You can tell her products are made with love and her immense depth of knowledge
I've also had the good fortune to use some of her skin care products. Regular self-abhyanga massages were one of her recommendations for me and I was hesitant to use so much oil on my skin, since I thought my skin tended to be oily already. As it turns out, with the skincare products I was using, I was actually stripping my skin of its natural oil and to balance that, it was overproducing oil. Once I started using the Five Prana face oil and body oils for abhyanga massages, my skin has become much healthier and more resilient, and definitely not oily. You can really tell her products are made with love and her immense depth of knowledge. The care she puts into formulating her products and using high quality ingredients is very apparent. I definitely recommend Marissa and all her ayurvedic services to any and everyone, even if you don't have any specific imbalances to address. Mahalo (thank you) Marissa!

Marissa is a compassionate and deeply knowledgeable practitioner. She is passionate about her work and it comes through in her attention to detail and her quiet confidence. I felt seen, heard, and mindfully attended to during my treatment with her. She creates a space of welcome in care in her physical environment and in her way of being. When I use the Five Prana skin care products she has created and when I drink the Five Prana tea she has prepared, I feel nourished not only physically, but spiritually as well. I know that I am putting things on and in my body that are lovingly crafted and meant for my wellness -- what a beautiful gift!

She thoughtfully and skillfully handcrafts her items
Marissa is one of the most thoughtful practitioners I’ve worked with. She is knowledgeable, attentive and thorough in her consultations. I felt listened to! She thoughtfully and skillfully handcrafts her items herself, which makes me doubly as excited to use them since I know I’m supporting local and getting a high quality product— whether it’s a spice blend or eye cream. You definitely want to stock up on some Five Prana pitta oil for the body. The smell is delicious and just the thing to get you through the cold season!

I ordered the Kapha Natural Perfume as a treat for myself after the holidays and I couldn’t be more pleased. I received my tidy little package quickly. The fragrance is warm, spicy and perfect for the cold winter months. Wonderful experience. Thank you❤️ I’ll be back for more, with friends.

Soothing, gentle, refreshing and absorbent
Marissa’s five Prana Ayurvedic body oils have improved the appearance and texture of my skin. I use the eclipse oil, vata face oil, vata body oil and saffron eye ghee. These natural products are soothing, gentle, refreshing and absorbent. Dry flakey skin and crepiness have been minimized by using these products.
