We may do a Taiwan Global Tea Hut trip this year in December. Like our Annual trip to tea regions, this would include tea production, tea drinking and extra special Global Tea Hut love!
Our app has launched! We have worked very hard on this project. Please help us and use the app. Fill in your profile and engage the community so that it is a worthwhile addition to Global Tea Hut.
Don't forget, we are broadcasting live videos at the beginning of every month on our Facebook & Instagram. This is a great way to connect with us, learn together and ask any and all questions. Check them out!
The photo contest has started. The last few years have been amazing, with tons of inspiring entries from around the world. We hope you feel as inspired this year. There will be amazing prizes!
Our Light Meets Life fundraiser teas and teaware are arriving. Keep an eye out on the site, as some of the special teaware we are making this year will be very limited, and most likely will sell very fast. The teas are also very exciting!
Help us spread the word. This is our year. If you know of a location where we could put some magazines and people would really read them, we would be happy to send you some copies for free.
Wu De will be in Estonia and Russia in August, conducting workshops. We also have another retreat in Spain this October. Check the website for more details: www.globalteahut.org/wudeteachings
Do I hold myself and my circumstances too
heavily? Do they prevent me from flying free? I
recognize that life is short and precious and freely
take risks. I live more fully, grabbing opportunities
for expansion and growth without second thought!
Before you visit, check out the Center's website (www.teasagehut.org) to read about the schedule, food, what you should bring, etc. Wu De 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.
We have switched to a ten-day course schedule at the Center, offering two per month starting in June. This is a great amount of time to get an immersive start in tea ceremony and will help the flow of the Center as well.
Steve Kokker took precepts in this tradition, receiving the tea name "Ci Ting (慈聽)," which means "Compassionate Listener." Those who know him will be proud that he took this step, and also know that this name, of the spirit, fits him and his achievements perfectly. Raise a bowl for him!
We are going to host a seven-day tea course at the Center on tea and Qi Gong, starting on September 12th. (We changed to 7 days.)
