4th Annual Shiatsu Camp 2019

September 13—15

Family gathering at Tekenink to strengthen Shiatsu communities and connections

Hello Shiatsu Enthusiasts,

I am excited that we are planning our fourth shiatsu family gathering at Tekenink so that we can strengthen our Shiatsu communities connections.

Everyone who came the last three years can return and more Shiatsu enthusiasts are joining us!

Kumiko & Nini will be back & presenting! They are also looking forward to be together with all of You

I will also be presenting as Koji is unable to join us this year. Hopefully next year!

In 2019 I am celebrating 32 years of practicing Shiatsu and 41 years of receiving.

I feel a deep connection to the land at Tekenink, I have been going there since I was in my mothers belly (62+years).

Bringing Shiatsu & Tekenink together feels wonderful to me and I believe everyone who was there the last three years would agree!

Kumiko said “Everyone extremely enjoyed the time, place and kind shiatsu spirits”

This Year we already have 14 people confirmed who have committed to coming by sending in their deposits.

We still have room for 5 people in the cabin & 5 campers.

Please contact me ASAP if You would like to come and let me know if You would like to stay in the cabin or camp and send in Your Deposit.

Here’s to another fun weekend of Creating a strong healthy Shiatsu Community!

With Love,

People staying in the cabin will need to bring their own sheets or a sleeping bag, pillowcase & towels. We have pillows & blankets there.

There is plenty of space for people who would prefer to camp.

We will organize sleeping arrangements once we have the final numbers for who is coming and wether they are staying in the cabin or camping.
