Every time I make this Golden Chai, it’s different according to the day, the weather, the stories and feelings of the moment. I improvise from this basic recipe. Be creative, enjoy the process of making something unique!
This recipe truly is a general recipe that will give you the very basic groundwork needed to make your own unique dairy-free-healthy-warming-your-soul chai tea.

“Could you facilitate this meeting, please? Here’s a flipchart marker.”
For some people, this invitation marks their first adventure into the world of group facilitation. It is an invitation to leap in to an unfamiliar situation, often under the scrutiny of peers, and with little or no preparation. The scope of responsibility implied is ambiguous, although there is some expectation that the facilitator is a kind of ‘servant leader’—whatever that confusing term may mean.
‘Drop in’ facilitation of this type is uncomfortable and highly challenging, particularly for facilitation novices. This approach also reflects an assumption—that facilitation is a mysterious, mercurial role, practiced ‘on the fly’, characterized by brilliant interventions and enlightened guidance, which somehow enables a group to operate at its best.
