Because of the large number of tea sessions happening around the world, we
are going to post about them on our
site from now on and use this section to discuss news happening around the
world. If you have any news, like a
wedding, birth or tea happening, let us know and we'll write about it here.
Also, our new site, coming in the next
few months, will connect you to tea sessions around the world in a much
better way than this page ever could!
If you haven't yet, check out the "discussion"
section of our webpage. There is now a place for you
to leave reviews of every month's tea, as well as your
experiences with the gongfu tea tips!
Rich Allum, a contributor to this month's issue,
and his beautiful wife Becky just gave birth to a healthy
teawayfarer named Tobias Stanely Allum. Raise a bowl
in congratulations to them!
Please make some comments under the new
videos and let us know what you think of the multi-media Global Tea Hut.
We are creating a survey for you all, which we
will email you about. It will help us to understand how
you use this magazine, which parts you enjoy and want
to see more of, and what we need to improve.
Our 2015 Light Meets Life teas are all going
fast, and one is already sold out, so if you want one you
should order soon!
Stay tuned for an announcement about this
year's Global Tea Hut Trip. You have to have been a
member all throughout 2015 to be eligible. This year,
we will be reserving half the spots for new guests!
How you do anything is how you do everything.
Much more of our life will be spent doing small
things like walking up stairs than the things we think
define us. Do I put my heart, my respect and soul in
all that I do? Do I miss my own life?
Before you visit, check out the center's website
(www.teasagehut.org) to read about the schedule,
food, what you should bring, etc. We've had a big
increase in our number of guests lately, so if possible please contact us
well in advance to arrange a visit.
Our brother Denis Mikhaylov is taking precepts in our tradition this month. He will soon receive his tea name.
It is Shen Su's birthday this month, on February 9th, to be specific. Send him some light, email him or raise a bowl. He is a bright soul, without whom the center would not be able to run!
The center will be closed from April 24th to
the end of May, like every year, to facilitate the
third annual Global Tea Hut Trip. Wu De plans
to do less traveling this year, so he will be here
teaching except for that time. Check our website
for more details.
