British Shintaido Daienshu

June 7 @ 2:00 pm - June 21 @ 5:00 pm BST

$60

British Shintaido is running an online daienshu, from June 7th to June 21st. Please note that all dates and times are London-based. For folks in North America, that means the daienshu begins June 7th at 6am PDT and 9am EDT.

We want to bring you the same atmosphere as for a normal daienshu: meeting friends old and new; refreshing our understanding of Shintaido forms; and taking time to really explore the depth of the practice. We are delighted that Master Minagawa Sensei and General Instructor Giovanni Rossi Sensei will be leading this event. We will use the free platform Zoom.

Our theme for 2020 is Kagayaki. The word has many meanings related to light, and for this event we are focusing on the meaning “spark”. At a time when life is uncertain and we live apart from each other, each day brings both restrictions and opportunities. We now hope that even though we are separated, this event will spark in us a sense of aliveness, well-being and excitement for Shintaido and ignite a renewed joy of life that will radiate out to our circle of family and friends.

The event is suitable for people of all levels of experience. Beginners are very welcome to join; so too are old friends.

The programme allows participants to join keiko online with our invited instructors on three separate weekends. You can also meet in short, instructor-led smaller groups to practice together during the intervening weeks. Individual practice is also encouraged during the time of the “gasshuku”. This structure allows people to be flexible according to their circumstances.

The cost is just £60. REGISTRATION CLOSES JUNE 1st, and if demand is heavy we may have to restrict numbers so don’t delay. Register at shintaido.co.uk/online-daienshu-2020
