|As in recent years, this years' Shakuhachi Camp will be held at:
Temenos Retreat Center
West Chester, PA
Starts: Friday August 9 2013, 10:30 am
Ends: Monday August 12 2013, 12:00 noon
The Eleventh Annual East Coast Shakuhachi Camp is an idea that has grown out of the excellent work that has been done at the four International Shakuhachi conventions and the annual Shakuhachi Summer Camps held in Colorado. We sincerely hope to supplement this work, and to provide a learning experience on the Shakuhachi to people on the East Coast who may not be able to travel. We are very happy that last year's Shakuhachi camp was such an overwhelming success.
This year we will again feature work on the Shakuhachi used as a Healing tool, as well as the usual work with the Honkyoku and the Sankyoku (Trio) Repetoire. The duration of the camp will last its usual 4 days.
We would like to invite individuals whose instruments are the Shamisen as well as the Koto.
The camp program includes four classes per day with the following Shakuhachi Masters: Kurahashi Yodo Sensei, Ronnie Nyogetsu Reishin Seldin, Robert Nyosei Kline, Kurt Nyoshun Findeisen, Jorge Alfano and Mutsumi Takamizu on Koto and Shamisen. In addition all Campers will get two private lessons with the staff members of their choice. Registration begins at 10:30AM on Friday, August 9, 2013, and the Camp ends at 12:00 (noon) Monday, August 12, 2013.
Students will be able to take part in other optional activities such as Za-Zen, and Tai Chi Chuan. There will be time to schedule additional private lessons with the guest instructors. This year we will have the new, highly recommended (sustainable) cooking of the Northbrook Caterers doing the Catering for all of our meals.
The 2013 Shakuhachi Camp is a very exciting project and we are very encouraged by the amount of enthusiasm we have received. We look forward to sharing this wonderful Take no Michi (Path of Bamboo) with a large fellowship of players from many varied backgrounds.

I truly hope that some of you can come and share the magic!
