The world lost a very beautiful Chajin recently, and we lost a beloved Global Tea Hut member. Mary Lou Heiss, author and tea expert, passed away. Raise a bowl for her and her husband Robert.
Our app has launched! We have worked very hard on this project. Please help us to use the app by filling in your profile and engaging 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 it out!
The photo contest will be starting this month. 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 going to be showing up any day now. 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 Oct. Check the website for more details and locations: www.globalteahut.org/wudeteachings
I see through
Does my own mental and emotional viewpoint saturate my experience? Do all my actions result from my perspective? I see beyond my emotional and intellectual views. I see the perspectives of others. I rest in the limitless clarity that is beyond me.
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 are switching 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 Center's flow as well.
We are still open to having one or two more long-term residents at the Tea Sage Hut. We are especially looking for those with experience in photography/videography. If you have these or other skills to contribute and can work out your own visa situation, please send us an email for more details.
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.)
