TAO TEA MEDITATION
While far from the origins of the Tao Tea Meditation, Joshua Tree is the perfect place to practice this connective, introspective practice. This traditional tea meditation, otherwise known as a tea ceremony, stems from the ancient ritual of Kung Fu Tea, with origins in China and Taiwan. You are invited to participate in a silent sitting where you will be served traditionally-brewed, rare teas, often from several hundred-year-old tea bushes, which grow wild at high altitudes in remote parts of the world. This type of thoughtful, intuitive connection with the plants often opens an opportunity for deep-self reflection and furthers our connection to the planet. This offering can be as intimate as two and as large as twelve, by individual arrangement upon inquiry. With a Tao Tea Meditation, Joshua Tree and its magic can open up a new, deeply connective world.
When it comes to things to do in Joshua Tree, this sacred land fosters practices that delve into introspection and connection. Ceremonial Tea-Sitting is one example of such practices, usually starting with guided breathwork and intention setting, followed by silence, and often concluding in meaningful conversation. We adhere strictly to traditional methods created by monks in an ashram in Taiwan. This ashram was devoted to cultivation of tea, as well as its propagation, philosophy, and medicinal properties. Just like in our skincare treatments, the water utilized in our ceremonies comes from an aquifer deep beneath our beloved desert land and goes through custom filtration, as well as a quartz-crystal charging process. When looking for a place to practice meditation, Joshua Tree has its own, special brand of magic.
At our Wellbeing Space, we offer Tea Meditation for individual clients and groups of up to 4. We can also serve tea at a location of your choice by special arrangement for groups of up to 10. This unique practice can be combined or added to our other offerings.
Please contact us directly for location options and pricing at our Wellbeing Space in the High-Desert of Pioneertown.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
My friends and I had the most transformative and restorative experience at Mojave Desert Skinshield. Patricia has cultivated the most magical well-being space and products that surpassed our expectations in every way. I am forever grateful for Patricia and what she shared with us and hope to return soon.
I had a most fantastic treatment with you that I'm happy to write about!! It was such a moving experience, "facial" doesn't come close to capturing it. It was beyond!
Each and every experience with the beloved Mojave Desert Skin Shield has multidimensionally impacted my spirit and soul. With each treatment, each product and offering, I have grown closer and closer to my core. In treatments over the years, I have experienced everything from emotional release, hormonal balance, ancestral healing, traveling to past lifetimes, internally traveling through my subtle bodies.. and each time I met myself exactly where I was supposed to be. After each session with Mojave Desert Skin Shield, I would always leave with the most beautiful products to maintain my alignment with my path to self mastery. Each product was so divine. It reminded me of my sovereignty. I felt held by the herbal allies, nature's gifts and the incredible formulation of each product. It went beyond a simple ritual, using Mojave Desert Skin Shield was the ultimate act of self compassion each time I went to explore my physical body's needs. Over the years, the teachings of each session and the lessons I have learned from using Mojave Desert Skin Shield products have offered me beams of light and daily moments of celebration and nourishment. Most importantly, Mojave Desert Skin Shield products remind me that the light always prevails
My experience with you was transformative; I entered my appointment thinking I needed great faced with not only the beauty but also the darkness. Your touch anchored me to the physical and I rode your subtle hums deeper within myself. I felt an internal tug of war between my fears and anxieties and my greater belief in being safe and secure in where I was.
You were so intrinsically connected to what I needed in those moments and I truly treasure that session out in the desert.
I spent the afternoon receiving deeply healing soul nourishment at Patti's oasis. My facial took me to another realm, soaking in the outdoor tub with sweep desert views relaxed me deeply and hearing the sound bowls let me drop down and in to a deeper part of myself. Patti is magic and her work is transformative.
Also, I love patti's products bc I know they are made with deep intention and love. In a world of a thousand face oils, her products standout for their efficacy and integrity. I looooove the desert nectar serum and the pulling oil.
“I discovered Patricia’s work through my friends and I am so glad I did! We booked a private Sound Bath with her, not only is the setting breathtakingly beautiful but it is clear that Patricia is spiritually aligned with both the setting and the work she is doing. The whole ceremony was incredible and we walked away knowing we had been part of something very special. I would recommend booking right away!!”
