Service is the foundation of our tradition and Way of Tea. We have a saying at the Hut: We aren’t here to learn how to make tea, but to serve tea. Through service, we find the spirit of tea, which is one of humility, grace, open-heartedness and of offering our growth and wisdom to others. There is as much to learn from serving a ten-day course as sitting one. Service is also a great way to give back to a Center and tradition that have improved your life. In serving a course, we help spread these life-changing teachings and grow our own practice as well. Servers have their own residence, but will be expected to follow the same code of conduct as the guests, meditate twice a day and fulfill all their duties with heart. In order to be eligible to serve a course, a Chajin (tea person) must have completed at least one ten-day course as a guest.
