June 2015 Local’s Night–Japanese Heritage Edition
June 17, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm UTC+0
Join us in honoring and celebrating
our Japanese roots at our June Local’s Night!
Wednesday June 17th, 6pm to 8:30pm
Osmosis has deep roots in Japan. It was while studying both Zen meditation and 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.
Enjoy Sushi, Sake, and Tea.
