Learn the Art of Tasseomancy: a Six Week Series
Tea is steeped in superstition, and reading fortunes with it hearkens back to days of the old divinatory art forms of the Shamans; interpreting symbols and formations made by random objects.
Tasseomancy is the Art and Practice of divination by the interpretation of symbolic patterns made by tea leaves in a teacup. Join Amy Taylor (Owner of TaoTaT’s Mystic Tearoom) as she talks about how this form of divination came to be the Art it is today.
She will cover its rich history and origins, the tools used and the forms it is done in. Learn the history of tea, tea reading and what teas are best for readings. Discover the nuances of teapots, teacups & saucers and their significance in the Tasseomancers process.
Learn how to brew a proper cup of tea for a reading and how to set the mood for the inquirer. Learn more about the techniques involved; how the diviner is able to look at the pattern of tea leaves in the cup and allow their imagination to piece together the story suggested by the shapes.
This workshop is for those who have a keen interest in knowing the more intricate details of this ancient method of psychic reading while also learning some centering/grounding techniques in relation to the art.
Students will receive a full set of notes, some supplies and a certificate of completion upon finishing the course. Space is limited to 10 people and will need a minimum of 6 to run.
Investment: (pre-registration required)$160. To register, please text Amy at 905-865-2711, or email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 289-396-0158. Downpayment of $50 is required prior to program by Friday February 9th.
Ah the joy of stabbing! I think it was about 7 or 8 years ago that I learned how to needle felt with a single needle. I enjoy it so much that it became a real obsession for me for a while, a kind of stress reliever. How could you not be releasing stress when you are stabbing something!
"Needle felting" is a term for using one or more felting needles by hand to create flat felt or felt sculpture with wool roving (what wool is before it gets spun into yarn). Once you learn some basic techniques, needle felting is really quite easy! Needle felting is a form of soft sculpture that is fast and gratifying.
So, in this class I will teach you some history of felting, different ways to felt and the basics of needle felting. You will then be making your own needle fleted acorn (much like the photo above) complete with a real acorn cap and some ribbon to hang it from! And don’t you think and acorn is perfect for celebrating the light half of the year?! I do!
Not only will you make your own acorn, you will have time to make another small felting project to be determined on the day of the course.
You will also take home your very own supplies (2 needles, instructions, foam and some wool roving) to continue felting on your own time!
Space is limited to 8 people and the last event sold out quickly so pre-registering for this will be required. You can do so by emailing email@example.com or texting 905-865-2711 or calling 289-396-0158 or messaging Amy through Messenger.
PLEASE NOTE THE DATE CHANGE, we will now be running this series of films in MARCH 2018 for International Women’s Day and Month! The first movie will be on Thursday March 8th, 2018 - International Women’s Day.
Women and Spirituality Movie Nights
Please join Amy Taylor, Owner of TAoTaT’s Mystic TearoomPlease join Amy Taylor, owner of The Art of Tea and Tasseomancy and TAoTaT's Mystic Tearoom, in watching the classic film series produced by Donna Read.
The series is called Women and Spirituality and consists of three impactful movies about woman’s role in Spirituality over the centuries.
Even though this series was made many years ago in the late 80s it is still very much a valid representation of woman’s spiritual role today. Women and Spirituality is Donna Read's definitive series that explores the power of the sacred feminine in mythological, historical and cultural contexts. This trilogy investigates the relationship between women and spirituality from ancient times to the present.
On Thursday March 8th, 2018
We will be gathering at 7:00pm and we will have a short discussion about the movie, then we will settle in and watch the first movie in the series called the Goddess Remembered - Part 1 - This poetic documentary is a salute to 35 000 years of "pre-history,"; to the values of ancestors only recently remembered, and to the goddess-worshipping religions of the ancient past.
On Thursday March 15th, 2018
We will be gathering at 7:00pm and we will have a short discussion about the movie, then we will settle in and watch the first movie in the series called the Burning Times - Part 2 - This beautifully crafted film is an in-depth look at the witch-hunts that swept through Europe just a few hundred years ago. False accusations and trials led to massive torture and burnings at the stake, and ultimately to the destruction of an organic way of life. The film advances the theory that widespread violence against women and the neglect of our environment today can be traced back to those times.
On Thursday March 22nd, 2018
We will be gathering at 7:00pm and we will have a short discussion about the movie, then we will settle in and watch the first movie in the series called Full Circle - Part 3 - In this stirring documentary, authors, teachers, social activists and feminists explore manifestations of contemporary women’s spirituality in the Western world. Drawing on the customs, rites and knowledge of the past, Full Circle envisions a sustainable future where domination is replaced with respect. At the centre of these discussions is a reverence for the Earth, a sacred circle which we must protect.
We will have some popcorn and light refreshments available for all.
The event is a Pay What You Can with a suggested minimum donation of $5 per person. Proceeds from the evening will be brought to Womens Centre of Hamilton (a part of Interval House Hamilton) https://intervalhousehamilton.org/womenscentre
Space is limited to 12 people so pre-registering for this evening will be required. You can do so by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or texting 905-865-2711 or messaging Amy through Messenger.
