Seeds of Change

It has been a year of incredible change within our community, for our group and for many of us as individuals. Losses, gains, changes, transitions, passages, resiliency, transformation – what is getting ready to grow and where will it all lead?


Under the guidance of Senior Instructor Bela Breslau, we will be receiving gorei from the Instructors of Shintaido NorthEast. There will be three keikos; two on Saturday and an optional keiko on Sunday morning.
