Online Solstice Meditation, Chant & Chai
December 19, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
We invite you to join Krishna, Sri Devi and others in the ShivaShakti Sangha for a holiday offering. This is an invitation for you to meet up with spiritual seekers, friends and teachers. We will honor the Winter Solstice with a Meditation led by Krishna, Kirtan with Sri Devi, followed by chai (make your own) and a chat with friends.
1 cup Water
1 cup Milk (Whole milk, almond, oat, etc)
2 tsp Black Tea fine powder (Indian-style) or 1 Tbsp loose black tea leaves. (Optional)
1 Tbsp coconut sugar or other sweetener of choice
1-inch piece fresh ginger, grated
A few cardamom pods, crushed
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
A couple cloves
1/2 tsp fennel seeds
A bit of dried Astragalus root
Chaga, ground (great replacement for black tea if you choose to omit the tea.)
Combine all the spices in a saucepan with the water and bring to a boil. Turn the heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes. Bring the heat back up to medium and add the milk. Bring the liquid just to a boil again and then turn down to low. Add the tea if you are using and sugar/ or other sweetener. You can omit the black tea for an Herbal Chai alternative. Stir to mix in the sweetener and simmer for about 5 minutes. Take off the heat and strain before serving.
