The Global Tea Hut website now has a forum up, where we can all discuss this month's tea and ask or answer questions, as well as share our experiences. It is a great way to meet some of your brothers and sisters in the hut. Come and join us: www.globalteahut.org/forum (We are also on Facebook and Twitter now!)
We are planning to launch a free video series of teachings this month, from our center here in Taiwan. Wu De will give some teachings on tea and share some life wisdom each week. This is definitely coming together. We have a director on his way to make the intro and first couple of videos. It should be great!
There are currently almost 70 people in Global Tea Hut from all around the world, countries like Spain, Russia, Estonia, Australia, New Zealand, America, Canada, USA, the U.K. and Taiwan. We have passed the cost of our center, 1000 USD per month, and are now saving towards some of our long and short term goals. You can read about them on our site. We are so overjoyed to be a part of this abundance and exchange.
If any of you are interested in seeing these newsletters in color, you can read them on the Internet at the GTH website, under the link for 'newsletters'. Some of the photography is worth taking a peak at.
We have used some of your contributions to buy some very nice, adult bunkbeds and remodeled the center to be able to host more of you if and when you find yourselves Eastward bound. We look forward to sharing tea with more of you!
We have given out 3 scholarships for a free year of GTH to people who want in but cannot afford the cost. If you know anyone else interested, please let us know. It is a great joy to expand this community!
Let us know about what you think of Global Tea Hut so far, either by contacting us or expressing your thoughts on the new forum. We would love to hear your comments or criticism. We are here to serve and make this experience better for everyone, bringing us all closer together.
