Learn from Akikazu Nakamura, a master of the shakuhachi method pioneered long ago by traveling Zen monks. Participants will be introduced to missoku, the ancient Japanese breathing technique once practiced by these monks in music and meditation. Nakamura, who trained with shakuhachi master Katsuya Yokoyama, will follow the missoku workshop with a master class for shakuhachi players.
