SynchroniciTEA House: New Paradigm
The SynchroniciTEA House was born from the dust of Burning Man, offering shady sanctuary, revitalizing tea and a nexus for synchronistic gatherings. It now pops up at Pacific Northwest gatherings to offer its services, including Cascadia, Luminosity, Photosynthesis and Sacred Bass Sessions.
Hosted by a crew drawing from Seattle, Bellingham, Vancouver BC and Portland, the SynchroniciTEA House is more than just a teahouse: it is a hub of creative community, engagement and exploration.
As we prepare for Summer 2015, we intend to take the SynchroniciTEA House to the next level for the people ~ we have plans for a bigger, bolder teahouse structure, space and amplification for playshops and performances, daily yoga and healing arts offerings and even more exquisite tea sourced from around the planet, with even more potent high frequency infusions.
Each cup of tea we serve is infused with love-consciousness and guests leave with the magic warmth of tea in their hearts and a sense of belonging to something greater.
Who are we?
Get Found is a collective of friends with roots in the Pacific Northwest and down the west coast: Seattle, Bellingham, Olympia, Portland, Sebastopol and San Francisco. We came together at Burning Man 2009 through a series of serendipitous events and have spent every summer since sharing in adventures, creative work and community building. In 2011, we came together 30-strong to create the SynchroniciTEA House at Burning Man, a respite from the desert sun that offered loungey vibes, music and performance, a place to recharge and connect over endless flowing teas. Our special love is for oolong tea, and we have a supplier in Taiwan who sends us the most choice leaf available; we also serve pu’ers, herbal blends and more.
After the successful Burning Man experiment, the teahouse was reconfigured to be mobile and began making appearances at gatherings like Sacred Bass Sessions in Bellingham, Pranaforce Yoga’s “Dream it Real” events in Seattle and the 2014 Photosynthesis Festival. Through our experiences, we have learned that it is more rewarding to show up and be in service to the community, to be active, intentional providers instead of passive consumers.
SynchroniciTEA House is more than just a teahouse: it is a hub of creative community, engagement and exploration. It is a vessel that facilitates Get Found’s desire to contribute to the emerging transformational festival culture and serve others. As a collective we are intentionally working to manifest the emerging New Paradigm.
Why We're Inviting Donations from Our Community
As we’ve branched out from Black Rock City to events and gatherings in the Pacific Northwest, we’ve had more opportunities to share our space, our intentions and our tea offerings with wider circles. We have never asked for money for our tea service over the years ~ all are welcomed in, all are given a seat and a steamy cup of elixir. Our patrons tend to leave with the magic warmth of tea in their hearts, a sense of belonging to something greater, and maybe, dare we say, a hint of the potential of brilliant community.
SynchroniciTEA House is made more vibrant through our partnerships with Destination Burning Man , Sacred Bass Sessions , Brilliant Community, Pranaforce Yoga, and other community collaborators.
We couldn't have pulled it off without the financial support of all of YOU, so thanks for every single donation.
Next, we're looking forward to serving it up at Imagine Music and Arts Festival on Orcas Island in September: http://imagineorcasisland.com! If you would like to help us evolve our mission of creating a space for community, collaboration and creativity, we will still gratefully accept any gifts towards these efforts. All money goes towards the teahouse, teawares and tea. Thanks again!
