A few weeks ago I taught shakuhachi within the setting of a Zen Buddhist sesshin or retreat. It was held at Sogenji in Assendorf, Germany. It was a very interesting experience. It was not that simple to combine and very much hard work. I really appreciate the experience and also the people who participated – both in the shakuhachi part or the samu part. It gives me food for thought and I will adjust it when I will do something similar in Finland 12-13 August at Sanneji.
