Oct 13  Tea Leaf Readings 1:00-3:00pm SUNDAY

Tea leaf reading, also known as tasseography, is a form of divination that most likely originated in ancient China and made its way to the Western world with the tea trade in the Middle Ages. It gained popularity among the lower classes and the traveling Roma people who continued the tradition as it is practiced today. Tea leaf reading is performed by ceremonially imbibing a small cup of tea made with the leaves still floating in the cup. When the cup is emptied, the leaves remain and form shapes and symbols that can then be interpreted by an intuitive reader to reveal the drinker's destiny 


Oct 16: Performance Tea  & CBD Teas 

Joe Gagnon, CEO, and co-founder of Performance Tea, will be coming to visit us and give us a presentation on their CBD and Adaptogen Tea products. Joe is an entrepreneur, adventurer and the author of "Living the High Performance Life, An Ordinary Joe's Guide the Extraordinary". He is also an ultra-endurance athlete and has completed more than 70 ultra-races.
There’s no doubt about it, sales of CBD and adaptogen products are ablaze as consumers are starting to understand the importance of using natural products to address issues of movement, mobility, recovery, stress, chronic pain, and sleep. 
Joe will give us an overview of CBD and adaptogens and how they can bring a plant-based solution to active consumers on the go who are managing their busy lives and working to keep fitness in their lives.  He will also discuss how the introduction of convenient (like their instant) functional products can help all of us push harder, get to homeostasis and achieve our potential.
