After more than 30 years of living in and teaching all over this country, T. Koei Kuwahara Sensei and his wife have decided to move back to his hometown in Japan in the summer of 2023.  This will be the end of an era for Japanese Meridian Therapy in the US and the opening of a new chapter in Kuwahara Sensei’s life. Those of us who are his students are fortunate and blessed to have had him here to learn from all these years, and we all want to send him home with all the good Ki of our collective respect and admiration for his knowledge, experience and heart.  

This event will take place in two parts here in the US. In order to reach as many of his students as possible around the country we will hold the first weekend in Santa Fe, NM and the second in Atlantic Beach (Jacksonville), FL.

These two weekends will be a chance to go back to the basics from a place of knowledge and dive even deeper into the heart of Hari Style Japanese Meridian Therapy.  Different material will be covered in each location and we hope to have all of you join us for both workshops. 

The first weekend in Santa Fe will be focused on root pattern diagnosis and treatment. Diagnostic skills include including pulse taking, “five-six-seventh sense,” and magnet testing. Treatment strategies including “aha-mation,” treatment with silver needle, and fine-tuning the oshide will be covered. 

The second weekend in Atlantic Beach will focus on ways to increase clinical efficacy, including use of Tanden breathing and kototama sounds and local treatment with sanshin (scatter needle) and volcano point selection and treatment. Sensei will also cover practicing Ki exercise with the patient. 

The third part of this series will be a future Hari Japan Camp where we will travel to study with Kuwahara Sensei and several of our other senior teachers across Japan in 2024 or 2025. Those who attend both the NM and FL workshops (the full mini series) will be offered first round invitations to join Japan Camp as space will be limited for this adventure.
