Zen Buddhist schools have employed various aesthetic practices for training the mind and the heart. Shakuhachi Flute playing comes in that genre as a devotional practice that helps one to cultivate awareness and concentration. Please join us for an evening of serenity with Grand Master Kurahashi.
Yoshio Kurahashi is one of the best known masters of the traditional Japanese shakuhachi flute. In addition to performing the traditional Zen Buddhist music throughout Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and North America, he has also premiered many modern
compositions for shakuhachi. Based in Kyoto, where he is head of the Kyoto Traditional Music Association and the Muju-An Shakuhachi School, he often travels to the United States to teach his popular workshops in New York, San Francisco, Dallas, Boulder, and New England.
