June Local's Night: Japanese Heritage Edition

Wednesday June 17th • 6pm to 8:30pm

Join Us in Honoring & Celebrating our Japanese Roots!

Enjoy Japanese Food, Sake, and Tea.

Relax in a Cedar Enzyme Footbath while watching a stunningly elegant Japanese sword demonstration in the Zen garden.

Osmosis has deep roots in Japan. It was while studying both Zen meditation & traditional Japanese gardening practices that Osmosis founder, Michael Stusser, discovered the Cedar Enzyme Bath. This traditional Japanese bathing ritual offered Michael relief from his painful experience of sciatica and he found it immensely rejuvenating. After returning to the U.S. he began prototyping a small Cedar Enzyme Bath on a friend’s ranch in Sebastopol, utilizing a small building he constructed using lumber recycled from a chicken coop and diligently seeking out local wood species. Michael’s vision was to bring not only this traditional Japanese healing modality to the U.S., but also to create a space that fostered meditation and mindfulness. 30 years later, that vision has manifested and Osmosis serves as a sanctuary for vitality, healing, and equanimity. Osmosis is beloved by its community and it has Japan to thank for many of its offerings, including the Cedar Enzyme Baths, the Kyoto-style Meditation Gardens, the tea ceremony, and much more. We look forward to celebrating this heritage with you at our next Local’s Night and for another 30 years.

RSVP Required. $20 Admission!
