You will learn about the world of incense from my slide presentation—not only incense from Japan, but also from ancient Egypt, the kingdom of Israel, and so on. For instance, I will discuss the incense from the Vimalakirti Sutra, the Exodus, and the story of the Queen of Sheba in the Old Testament. Then you will experience a Japanese incense ceremony. The fragrance of top quality agarwood—an extremely precious and priceless fragrant wood, called kyara in Japanese—is said to be food for your soul. It is really uplifting and effective for stress release and self-awareness. It can be a great way to experience mindfulness and heartfulness as well. The next experience is to enjoy the enchanting fragrance of neri-koh from a recipe over 1,000 years old. Finally you will experience the magical fragrance of kyphi with a recipe from over 3,500 years ago. I hope you will experience spiritual, mental, and physical well-being through the incense ceremony.
Hi, I have traveled to 51 countries, and have lived in Boston, London, Paris, and Hong Kong for 10 years. I received an MA from the Graduate School of Lesley University. I am an open-minded, cosmopolitan person. My passion to research incense is not limited to Japan, but also ancient Egypt, Greek, India, China, and so on. My goal is for you to experience mindfulness and relaxation for well-being in body, mind, and soul. For those interested in self-awareness and heartfulness, my session is truly ideal.
