Wu De will be in Bali in late January, with a stop in New Zealand to serve tea at the Wanderlust Festival. Then Wu De and Sam will be traveling in New Zealand and Australia, some time in March.

This is our year to start work on Light Meets Life. Please help us spread the word. When the new Center is open, we will move to a course schedule, sending you all a catalogue every December with the coming year's courses.
We have started broadcasting live videos at the beginning of every month on our Facebook page. This is a great way to connect with us, learn together and ask any and all questions. Check it out! We are now offering free Light Meets Life cakes to authors whose submissions are accepted in Global Tea Hut. Let us know if you are interested! Also let us know if there are any topics you want to see in future issues.

Jasper will be taking precepts in our tradition this month. Raise a bowl for him and send some congratulations his way. What a bright Chajin! We'll let you know how it went next month.
It is now winter time, which means Fridays are hot spring days at the Center. Every Friday morning, we steep some shou tea and head to the nearby hot springs for a winter tradition of a few hours of soaking. (If you were looking for an excuse to visit in the winter, you've got it!)
We are going to host a ten-day tea courses at the Center in 2017 on tea and Qi Gong, probably in September. Contact us if you are interested.
