What is Tea Time, exactly?

🍡

Tea Time is where five-ish strangers sit at a cafe with a Host to have a two hour conversation. It's not about anything in particular.

You're meant to know pretty much nothing about the people that come, aside from the fact that they all signed up for thisΒ β€” just like you. It's self-selecting in that sense.

However, it may bring you comfort to know a little something about your Host. If so, just keep reading

Meet your Host, Saira.

(It'll be helpful to know what they look like when you're looking for a group of confused strangers at the cafe.)

Community, cafes and cultural lenses are all vital parts of our society. I believe in living vigorously in one's own city while encouraging the self to discover new horizons while exchanging conversation. I'm an all-out altruistic human. I'm not organized at all, I prefer solitude and listening to the sounds of water but I'm nowhere close to that landscape. Toronto has bodies of water, sure, but making a time of reflection when I listen to others stories and keep myself busy. I'm a mixed bunch of feelings. I live off of creative engagement and personal stories. It's important to share your views

What's your story?

A creature living in the city with a consistent drive to engage in creative conversation and art. Saira Hussain is an entrepreneur, a visual composer of all things beautiful. An extrovert by day and an introvert by night, Saira wears several cultural lenses to project an inviting space of inclusiveness even within conversative landscapes. She believes that environmental health and minimizing screen time go hand and hand. If you're happy with your world, you'll find a plethora of options to engage with the people near (neighbours, community) and dear to you. I dropped a pizza out of the oven.

What might we talk about?

Mind versus screen control, wedding planning, commitment and explanations on marriage. On the subway: why don't we engage with others on the subway? There should be a rule to not look at your phones on the subway unless you have to make an urgent call or google map your destination. Phones call for anxiety but also encourage universal engagement. Let's talk about it. Entrepreneurial journeys and tips. The importance of self-meditation and reflection. Is gym time a time of reflection or have we sandwiched it in between our mundane routines? What is your moment of reflection? What activities do you take part in when it comes to being mindful of your day, what are your secrets?

Run with light, food is for thought.
