I would like to start a group for learning the Shakuhachi Zen Meditation group. If you already know how to play the Shakuhachi, please join us! I am a beginner in Shakuhachi so all levels are welcome. If you would like to simply sit and listen to the Shakuhachi meditation that is also good too. This is a nature meditation and hiking group with the Shakuhachi instrument. All experience levels are welcome! Come meditate and experience nature! The goal is not to hike at a fast pace in nature but to sit or walk slowly and discover nature thoughtfully. We will listen to the Shakuhachi in nature for Zen meditation. This group is for people who have busy jobs and are trying to create balance in their lives and have little time to make meaningful friendships, and who would like to learn Zen Shakuhachi nature meditation practice to build inner balance. We focus primarily on sitting and listening to the Shakuhachi or on slow walking in nature to building self and nature awareness. Nature meditation gives you the ability to see things clearly as they are truly to better assess and resolve complexity at work and in life. This is also a support group and is set up to encourage you to make time for nature and yourself.
