This Thursday, February 21st, at 19:00 Yoga House & Spa invites you to join Zen-flute Shakuhachi meditation by Adi Pieper!

Shakuhachi is traditionally made from the root piece of the Madake bamboo. Japanese flute masters have developed it to become an advanced instrument used for meditation, folk music, and classical music in Japan.

Adi Pieper's musical background ranges from Western music, classical guitar, classical voice to Eastern music (including Indian tabla drums and Indian bamboo flute). He founded a folk singing group, later sang in several symphony choruses and played and recorded with the musician and composer Deuter. His love for the Shakuhachi as a means for meditation led him not only to play it but also to build these flutes.

The meditation will last for about 1 hour. There will be some classical Honkyoku pieces played as well as some free improvisations. Each piece will be followed by several minutes of silent sitting. The entrance is not fixed priced, it's madefor donation. It means you are welcome to leave as much as you want and can (depending on your experience and gratitude) — it will help us to make these events in future. You are welcome!
