“There are ‘hidden’ meanings – not to be confused with non-understandable things – that must be thought through constantly until you reach an understanding.”

Shakuhachi in Play

n

My Shakuhachi has recently relocated into my yoga practice space. I brought it because I felt it could support me in my practice. It has worked wonders for me. Sometimes I play it before a practice, it helps me to collect myself, detach from everything on my mind and slowly make my way into a practice. Sometimes I play it at the end of a practice and it helps me bring the practice to a close. Sometimes I only play the Shakuhachi.

It’s really amazing for me to re-experience myself through the Shakuhachu. As I previously wrote, playing the Shakuhachi gives me a glimpse into into my inner space, it’s usually very different before and after a practice.
