Tea-Vibes: Bringing Together Shakuhachi Flute Music and The Way of Tea

The Way of Tea has been tightly connected with music and vibrations for many centuries. We would like to dedicate this event to bringing these wonderful traditions together.

This time we will be talking about ancient shakuhachi flute. This flute was brought into Japan from China with Buddhism. For many centuries the only people who could play this flute, were wandering Zen monks, called komuso.

We will be discussing komuso movement, shakuhachi tradition, connection of the flute with the Way of samurai, and contemporary life of an ancient instrument. Of course, this all will be done while we enjoy nice tea.

The place is the Clubhouse in The Orchard Complex
4040 Hancock Street San Diego, CA

Street parking

Suggested donations:
$10 for non-residents
$5 for residents of The Orchard
Nobody will be turned away for the lack of funds.

    So sorry that I will not be able to attend this event. It sounds truly wonderful. Hearing Eugene on his 'magical' flute is an extraordinary experience. Sip and enjoy!
