When two people sit for tea together, a moment of shared attention can occur. In response to feelings of political and social opposition, I expanded on my tea for two service to include table linens and a structure for more intentional dialogue and listening. In regard, shown below, the table setting clears space for two people frozen in opposition to discover a sense of commonality through the gift of active attention. The knit table runner connects the two at their hearts, serving as softening breastplates. Dialogue is structured to promote mirroring and compassion for the other’s thoughts. This experience is designed to open the space for reconciliation and beginning anew with someone.
