Placing awareness and intention on a special situation or transition is at the heart of every ceremony. Creating the context, attending to all the details, and encouraging a certain state of mind are each important and require lots of time and resources. Shakuhachi is a ceremonial music instrument, a woodwind with depth and subtlety and expressive vocal qualities. Due to its Zen Buddhist history, bringing about a gentle yet clear state of attention among groups and individuals is completely natural and effortless for shakuhachi.

Thanks for playing our wedding by the ocean in Mendo, it was truly incredible to be able to have deep music with no need for any PA system out there on those meadow cliffs. Very memorable, our deepest thanks.
What can I say? Having our wedding in the redwoods simply would not have been as magical without you and your bamboo, opening up our hearts and minds. I would say “let’s do this again” but, well, the whole wedding thing…!
