While in the midst of our fundraising efforts, let us honor the tradition of coming together to share tea. You can participate by hosting a tea ceremony with your local community and collecting any donations for the Light Meets Life fundraising campaign. Drink tea with friends, raise your bowls and prayers to our future Center, Light Meets Life.

It is my thanks and gratitude I give to you, your school is more than tea, it’s a way. A bead in my mala that passes through my fingers every day. Sitting with tea is a way into myself and mindful relationships with other beings. I can only repay such a treasure by sharing.

Global Tea Hut has been an integral part of my life for the past 6+ years, and through being apart of it, I've shared Tea Ceremonies all across Australia. Tea brings me home to myself and the Earth in a profound and beautiful way. I'd love my next visit to Taiwan to be in the brand new Light Meets Life centre. Supporting this campaign wholeheartedly.

I donated because I love this tea community. When I think about the Tea Sage Hut (and Light Meets Life), I think about it as a home away from home. I think about the amount I spend on tea each year, and realize that more than a new teapot or more tea, the center, the teachings, and the people there are the things that help support my tea practice. So now, it's time to support them, and in doing so support this global tea community, present and future.
