A wonderful sound medicine man, Danny Goldberg will be in the house again! YES, I am so thrilled to inform you that we are having Danny's sound session at our house in Scotts Vally next Saturday! 😃 Please join with us! The fee for the event is $40. Please email me at Shinobeau@iCloud.com to reserve your seats. Upon reservation, I will inform you the address of the venue. The schedule for the event is as below.
☆ 3:30 - 4:30pm Danny's Sound Session
☆ 5:00 - 6:00pm Dinner Time
Here's the dinner menu (all vegan, locally grown organic vegetables & grain)
- Sweet vegetable drink (home remedy soup to nourish your organs) with yuzu
- Kale salad with orange marinated beets
- Kabocha risotto with tempe bacons
- Japanese taro croquettes
- Oatmeal blancmange with cranberry sauce with herb tea
Since the space is limited, we can only afford 10 people at maximum so that we have enough space to lie down comfortably. It is almost like you are having one-on-one session with Danny! It's a very different experience when you go to one of his sessions that are usually held in the spacious yoga center with many people. Which I have to admit that it is still very soothing and relaxing. But when you have his session with a small group in a private house in a woods, it is a totally different story! Very powerful and rejuvenating! You can find out more details as below! I posted on my blog when we had his first session this January.
Here's Danny's website.
As winter solstice (12/22) is approaching, the period of daytime is shorter and night time is longer. It means the shorter the daytime, we receive less sunlight, and this decreasing sunlight is influencing our body and mental health. That is one of the reasons that there are a lot of celebrations all over the world during this time of the year from the ancient times. So, I thought having Danny's session would be very beneficial to our well being.
In Japan, we call winter solstice TOUJI, literally means winter reach. On the day of TOUJI, we have a custom to eat kabocha (Japanese pumpkin) from back to Edo period. Kabocha is sweet vegetable, has a nutty-chestnut like flavor and creamy potato like texture. It packed with vitamin A & C, and has a good source of iron, copper, magnesium, beta-carotene, dietary fibers and various antioxidants. It boost skin health, improve vision, strengthen the heart, aid in weight loss and has many health benefits. So, it is a perfect vegetable to eat during the TOUJI period.
We also has a tradition to take Yuzu-yu (yuzu bath) on TOUJI. Yuzu is a Japanese citrus fruit, similar to lemmon. It is often used its skin and juice as a flavor enhancer for cooking. YUZUYU is a bath where the whole fruit is floated in steaming bath. Since Yuzu has antioxidant property, it is believed to nourish the skin and protect from the flu and cold. The aroma of yuzu is so wonderful, If you have a chance, please try Yuzu-yu!
After the sound session with Danny, I will serve you the dinner using above 2 items, so you will be ready for TOUJI. It will boost your immune systems and bring your spirit up！ *･゜ﾟ･*:.｡..｡.:*･'(*ﾟ▽ﾟ*)'･*:.｡. .｡.:*･゜ﾟ･*
