TeaXchange – Life Reflections in the Lens of Tea

What is tea? In a world as complicated as our human society, tea has been processed, marketed and sold in many ways against what tea is. Tea is a fascinating world in itself. Let’s go to the basics, sort out some nouns and verbs and then you can start your own exploration.
The theme for February’s gathering is:

Oolong, also called wulong, is one of the six categories of tea. The tasting profile can vary vastly depending on what type of oolong you try. This workshop is about oolong, about the makings of this tea, about the brewing, about the connections of history, tradition, culture, and people through this tea. Join us for an afternoon of tea and conversation with three amazing oolongs.

BSEC’s Accessibility Auction


“Creating an environment that can be used by all people,
regardless of their age, size, disability or ability.”

—Center for Excellence in Universal Design

The Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture is an inclusive humanist community that is dedicated to social justice, community engagement and personal growth.  We steward a piece of land at 53 Prospect Park West where we strive to practice these values.  Human worth and human connection are key values we hold precious.  As a community, we celebrate and grieve together, supporting and challenging each other in our humanness.  Our historic building serves as a welcoming place for many from our Brooklyn community to come for celebrations, meetings, learning; interaction and enlightenment of all kinds.

To continue in our role as a hub for festivities, personal growth and social action, for EVERYONE in our community, we have committed to building a ramp to our main floor and garden. We want the design of our building and landscape to match our values and say:  ALL ARE WELCOME of WHATEVER AGE, KIND OF BODY, or ABILITY

In an effort to raise awareness and resources for this exciting and important project we are organizing a Live and Virtual Auction and are asking you, in our broader community to consider taking part.
