The Cup of Humanity


Now that we are restored through community celebrations and sharing, the time has come to strengthen our resolve and put our best feet forward into the world.

At Far Leaves we are focusing on ways to simplify life as we brace for a fresh new year.

By reducing our consumption of stuff we hope to have a more authentic relationship with the world and to reduce our support of the forces that would cut down forests for tchotchkes.

Through tea we can maintain a full life and as Kakuzo Okakura observed over 100 years ago “adore the beautiful among the sordid facts of everyday existence”.

It is a good time to practice living simply so that we can all simply live.

May peace be with you.
