Tao Tea Meditation

TAO TEA MEDITATION

 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 opens an opportunity for deep self-reflection and furthers our connection to each other and the planet.

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, Ayurvedic copper & prill bead treatment as well as quartz-crystal charging process.

We use custom filtered, structured and hydrogenated water in all offerings ant our Los Angeles studio and elsewhere outside of the Mojave Desert.

At our Wellbeing Space, we welcome individual clients and groups of up to 10. We can also organise ceremonial tea sitting at a location of your choice by special arrangement. This unique practice can be combined with, or added to our other offerings.

Please contact us directly for options and pricing for events at the space of your choice. To book a session at our Wellbeing Space in the High-Desert or in Los Angeles, please look through the options below.

Nancy

Patricia was wonderful. The whole experience was inviting and peaceful. She walked us through the meanings of tea meditation, its history, and the items she uses in the meditation. The tea was delicious and the space we were in was beautiful both inside the home and the landscape outside. We enjoyed the quiet and serene location. Beautiful experience.

What a lovely sanctuary right there in town. I loved how far away I felt from the hustle and bustle and yet it was convenient to get to. I look forward to coming again.

It was a true pleasure to spend 4 magical days at Patricia's Desert Wellness Space. Every aspect of the experience was a pure delight. True elevated hospitality. I had a clear objective : recenter myself in order to plan ahead with a balanced mind. Patricia and her team helped me through this journey and made it a success. I came out of the experience transformed. I highly recommend this to anyone who is looking to recenter himself and enjoy the beauty of the Mojave Desert.

I recently stayed at the Mojave Desert Skin Shield wellness center after reading a brief article about the owner, Patricia, her skin care products and philosophy of wellness. So many positive comments and I was not disappointed. This serene, quiet, out of the way retreat embraced the beauty of the desert both in the indoor and outdoor spaces. Tucked inside a warm, weighted sleeping bag, I enjoyed outdoor sound baths and experienced a deep, deep relaxed meditative state. The Thai massage, also done outside, was therapeutic as well as relaxing. Patricia's facial was tailored for my skin using herbs and ingredients she mixes up and applies in the indoor space of a large vintage trailer. I've had numerous facials but this one was the best one I've ever had! I glowed afterward. And as if these body treatments weren't enough, the tea and cacao ceremonies were powerful, spiritual and offered a deep connection from within. I can't speak highly enough of my experience and the wonderful soulful host, Patricia, and the space she has created. I will surely return to this desert spiritual oasis.

I had the most beautiful and healing experience with Patricia. From the start with the out door infrared sleeping bag, delicious water from her well, oil pulling, and the rosewater eyewash, I knew I was in for an ultra experience. I experienced a symphony of birds married with nature all communing with the enormously fabulous sound bowls played by Patricia. I have not stopped telling friends, and family about the depth of this fantastic self care experience. Beyond grateful.

Patricia! Thank you so much for the beautiful experience this past Saturday. It was truly one of a kind, and deeply needed for the entire group. All of my friends were blown away by your work and one in particular who has done over 8+ sound journeys was left in awe and shared that it was the best she had ever done. Your generosity and hospitality made it that much more special for all of us, and I cannot thank you enough!

We loved our Sound Therapy experience. It was heart opening and a true gift to experience the space, sound and mediation.

Kara

★★★★★

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!

Piper

★★★★★

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.

Kyle

★★★★★

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.

Kirsten

★★★★★

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!!
