Workshops & Events
Time to set you free from conceptual thoughts, help you create space and silence in your mind, be with inner-peace. Enjoy the present moment.
SALON is the space to experience the moments of inner peace together with Japanese aesthetics. My aim is to bring harmony, peace and inspiration to us.
With my signature YASURAGI retreat with Japanese Tea Ceremony and Calligraphy Meditation, you will activate your sixth sense and also get a deeper understanding of Japanese culture & philosophy, Wabi-Sabi and Zen, by feeling.
Japanese SALON is located in a 19th-century villa Oud Holland, with a rare collection of Japanese art, inviting all walks of life from all over the world in the heart of the Netherlands. You can book a private or group session or come to join the monthly Salon on last Sunday of the month.
Private and small group sessions.
Monthly Open House.
"Yasuragi is a Japanese word that describes
the gentle feeling of Inner Peace.
Your heart is at ease, calm
and harmony with yourself.
Like a flower opens,
Yasuragi opens your heart, body and soul.
and Love will return to you and all."
Inspired by the 18th century European literary Salon movements, "Japanese SALON" was born out of Azumi's passion to share the essence of Japanese ancient wisdom at a historical Dutch venue. The first SALON was organised in January 2009.
Various themes are available and New Year calligraphy is one of the popular themes in January. Japanese High Tea in the afternoon, Sake tasting, private art vernissages are other examples.
Over the years, Azumi has produced numerous Salons & workshops for private clients and for luxury brands, art & design companies, hotels. Customers such as Chopard, Marlies Dekker, Hotel Okura and Marcel Wanders Studios hired Azumi in the past years.
