ABOUT SOUKEN DANJO


It is rare for a Japanese Zen master to give workshops in Zen meditation in Leiden. The arrival of 'Smile Master' Souken Danjo promises to be a heartwarming event.

 

In 2009 and 2017, Danjo-san brought workshops to the Museum het Leids Wevershuis - and joined us with performances ofNOH/ Butho in the Japan Museum SieboldHuis. He also honored Leiden by planting of a seed from Hiroshima's Peace Tree at the Leiden Hortus Botanicus.

 

These events made an indelible impression on the many people present. We look forward to another inspiring festival with Danjo-San.
