An Intentional Moment

There are moments in life when you feel like you are doing exactly what you were put on this planet to do. This business is one of those for us. Over the years, we have spent our time and energy helping others build brands and grow their businesses and now its time to do this for ourselves.

Intentionaliteas is more than just a business though. Its a lifestyle, an experience and a community of people who want more. Who understand how connected we are to each other and to commit to bringing this level of intention, and focus to our day. In a world that is becoming increasingly more distracted and numb—to both our purpose and power—its time we learn the art of intention.

We were introduced to the philosophy of intentionality through yoga. To understand that we are actively co-creating our world by the very lens in which we see it. And, when we change our lens, we can change outcomes for the better. When we plant healthy, fertile seeds, we can grow a garden brimming with vegetation. Learning to focus the mind, focus on the good, focus on change, we can create a world that is kinder, gentler and more nurturing. We can tap into this ancient wisdom, and counteract the challenges we create when we are moving through life without purpose and direction.

I’ve worked in tech for years and love technology as much as the next person. But, I’ve witnessed its potential for harm in my own children’s lives, and quite frankly, in my own. We are so tethered to our phones and the need for stimulation, we’ve become programmed for noise. Whether its music, or video, or instant TV, we have forgotten the need for quiet. Quiet gives us the moment to imagine, to daydream to create and to listen. When we don’t have these moments in our life, we are just bouncing from thing to thing.

So Intentionaliteas is more than a tea company. We’re really about experience. The experience of slowing down, of focus on creating a moment of quiet every day, of pause to reflect. And even though, we’ve arrived at this moment through yoga, its more than a yogic practice. The benefits of meditation and reflection are numerous and proven through scientific study. The properties of plants are also known and celebrated throughout history. So, its a perfect blend of time and moment to bring them together for a greater cause.

We invite you to wake up. To want more from this beautiful life we are so blessed to experience. To embrace each other as we are sharing this moment of being together. It’s time we acknowledge our interconnectedness to each other and this planet and create space for intention. Imagine the power of the collective focus on peace, on gratitude, on love? When we are all focused on this, we can and will change the world. For the benefit of all and the harm of none.
