Inside the Hut

by Global Tea Hut

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!
  • Ambrosia is here. This is the first of our Light meets Life fundraiser teas this year. It is an aged brick. We have already ordered four other teas as well. By the time you receive this magazine, some of them may be up on the website! Be sure to keep watch!
  • There is a very good chance Wu De will be doing some workshops in San Francisco, Los Angeles and maybe Austin this summer, probably at the end of this month. Keep an eye on our social media for details.
  • We also have uploaded our blog to the website ( We will publish the "Further Reading" there, as well as extra content, like a new series on the exercises in Tea Medicine.
  • There are a number of paintings and scrolls available on the website. If you are interested in having a piece of Wu De's artwork in your tea space, you can now get one through the website (
  • In the first two weeks of this month, women from all around the globe will gather together for the 4th annual Spirit Weavers Gathering, where Tea has become a cherished offering. Picture it: many sisters sitting in Northern California redwoods sharing tea and raise a bowl, leaf to heart for our tea sisters!
  • Wu De will be facilitating a six-day retreat in the Spanish Pyrenees. It will be a Zen & Tea One Flavor retreat focusing on the connection between meditation and tea. Participants will gather fresh spring water, meditate a few hours a day, learn chanting and have tea as well as Zen discourses throughout. It will be a rare chance to deepen your practice and learn tea at the same time. And, if that wasn't enough, it is being held at a gorgeous venue in the mountains of rural Spain. This event will run from October 8th to 14th. If you are interested in attending please check out the website: (

    Wu De will also be traveling in Germany and the Czech Republic after the retreat, sharing tea and teaching Cha Dao.

June Affirmation
I am superior to negative thoughts and low actions.

Am I letting negative habits rule my destiny? I am not my behavior. I can transcend. I am more powerful than my negative thought patterns or the negative actions that result from them.
