As you can see, we have a new printer. We are very excited about this. Through some good fortune, we have found a printer who visits the Center and believes in our mission and in improving the magazine!
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.
Don't forget that we have a tremendous amount of supplementary material online: articles in Further Readings, blog posts from the community, and past issues of this magazine as well as a ton of videos on many subjects that we have covered over the years of sharing tea wisdom.
Global Tea Hut members Resham and Vishwal were married in Thailand. Wu De and Joyce attended and couldn't stop raving about the food and how gorgeous Resh was. Raise a bowl to them!
Another reason the magazine looks so amazing is that our tea sister, and October 2016 TeaWayfarer, Raneta Kulakova has moved to the Center. She is a great photographer and designer. Raise a bowl to her!
I am peace.
Am I taking the time and making the space for my
own peace? Do I foster serenity? Do I honor peace
in my life? Peace is not something I cultivate; it is
something I let happen by making space for calmness in my life.
Before you visit, check out the Center's website (www.teasagehut.org) to read about the schedule, food, what you should bring, etc. Wu will be traveling a lot in 2017, so check his schedule on the site if you are interested in seeing him while you are here at the Center.
Jasper Hermans took precepts in our tradition and received the tea name Jing Ren (淨仁), which means pure kindness. We are very proud to have such a shining light in our midst. He is a great soul and true Chajin.
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 course at the Center in 2017 on tea and Qi Gong, starting on Sept. 12th.
