Practicing Compassion for Ourselves in 2021 

Spill the Tea is an opportunity to come together (virtually), have a friendly discussion on important topics, and leave feeling connected!

It’s a new year, but we find ourselves still struggling with the impact of the pandemic. This month, we’ll chat about the importance of compassion, and focus on being present and kind to ourselves. Connect with new friends, share thoughts and ideas, and learn from one another - bring your favorite cup of tea (or whatever you like) and join us!
