Because of the large number of tea sessions happening around the world, we
are going to post about them on our
website 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 website 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!
The 2016 Light Meets Life Fundraiser is now in full swing, and all our 2016 teas are in. Check the site today to get some amazing tea and support the building of Light Meets Life. Also, we are transparent, so feel free to ask about our costs and your contributions.
We have a new page for Wu De's teaching events around the world. Many of you are always asking for updates, so we thought it was about time to share them: www.globalteahut.org/wudeteachings.
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!
The October issue is going to be all about Elevation, which was a kind of initiation for so many of us sitting for tea together here. We are asking the community to submit Elevation stories and photography. Chosen submissions will get free tea!
We are giving away two cakes of Ambrosia each month until the end of the year. All you have to do to be eligible is take a picture of yourself serving Global Tea Hut tea and post it on Instagram with the hashtag #servingglobalteahut. We have already given the first few away! Don't miss the chance!
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
Wu De will also be traveling in Germany and
the Czech Republic after the retreat, sharing tea and
teaching Cha Dao. Events are already posted!
I honor my inadequacies.
Can I see that the vision of my character defects
and inadequacies is a gift? Without guilt, can I
take a moral inventory, recognizing that the mind
that sees the mistakes is not the mind that made
them? Diagnosis is the beginning of all healing.
