Sennin Foundation Center for Japanese Cultural Arts

Since 1981, The Sennin Foundation Center for Japanese Cultural Arts has offered instruction in Japanese systems of yoga and meditation, healing arts, martial arts, and fine arts. It is located in the San Francisco Bay Area.

The Sennin Foundation Center for Japanese Cultural Arts has been offering instruction in traditional Japanese arts under experienced, certified teachers since 1981. Established in California by H. E. Davey Sensei, it presents separate training in Japanese systems of yoga, healing arts, martial arts, and fine arts. Ongoing classes are available to people of all ages and levels of health, including classes for children ages five and up. Members of the Sennin Foundation Center have access to the rich traditions of Japan's cultural arts through practice in the group's classical dojo (literally, "training hall of the Way"). Much more than simply a school or studio, an authentic dojo is a gateway into the timeless realm of Asian art and personal development, allowing members of the Sennin Foundation Center to realize vibrant well-being and longevity. In fact, the word "Sennin" describes the ancient Japanese equivalent of a yogi. The Sennin were known for their high degree of enlightenment, splendid health, and according to some ancient myths, their ability to attain immortality. This same emphasis on spiritual realization and physical fitness is stressed by the Sennin Foundation, thus the use of the term Sennin. Contact us at 510-526-7518 or [email protected].

Japan Culture Spotlight

【Furin: Cooling the summer heat and enjoying the autumn colors, the traditional way】
The hot and humid days of summer will come, but there are traditional ways to create an atmosphere of cool comfort: the tinkle of the furin bell hanging and fluttering in the breeze; goldfish swimming in a glass bowl; water sprinkled on the shimmering garden ground and the hot veranda. The garden trees and plants thrive in the heat, but we can overcome it with some old and wise customs. Unlined cotton yukata are cooler than their heavier kimono cousins. Bare feet slip into geta wooden sandals for clickety-clacking outside. In rural areas, watching fireflies, and maybe catching some, are two more ways to help us forget the heat of June nights.

Mid-summer night skies are brightened with multi-color fireworks. Beginning in the Edo period (1603-1867), one of the joys of summer was huge firework shows, and today we enjoy them in cities, towns and villages throughout the country, each place offering something different to compete with the others. These events attract huge crowds — locals, former residents back home for the holidays, and tourists.
The archipelago is decorated with waterfalls, some majestic, some intimate. Kegon Falls at Nikko and Nachi Falls in Wakayama are perhaps the best of the many spots where cascading water invites us to cool off and regain our energy. Teahouses and traditional inns with views of the falls offer a break from our regular routine.

Next comes autumn, another time to think about going into the country to enjoy nature with our eyes. This time we will feast on the reds and yellows of maples and other trees, not the blossoms of cherry trees. And yet the feeling of anticipation is similar as we wait for the leaves to turn on mountain slopes and in steep-walled valleys. Old, historic temples and shrines are popular spots for travelers searching for special moments near an old Buddhist statue or some charming artwork.

Autumn evenings are a time to admire the moon and have moon-viewing parties, or to listen to the enchanting sounds of insects like matsu-mushi crickets and suzu-mushi. Enthusiasts keep suzu-mushi in cages at home, to enjoy one of nature's beautiful sounds ringing through the night.

General information

The Sennin Foundation Center for Japanese Cultural Arts is a small traditional dojo and its walls are tastefully adorned with H. E. Davey Sensei's Japanese calligraphy. Located in Albany, just across the bay from San Francisco, it is usually open throughout the week. The Sennin Foundation Center's orientation is relatively noncommercial in approach, and group instruction is personalized, involving small numbers of serious students. Private lessons are also available, and all fees are reasonable, allowing individuals from a variety of income brackets the opportunity to practice. H. E. Davey Sensei and a staff of assistant instructors offer noncompetitive instruction in the arts listed above. Each day at least one member of the teaching staff will kneel on a floor covered with tatami mats and face the dojo's kamidana (literally, "deity shelf"). As these teachers bow to the jinja, or "school shrine," they carry on the authentic and time-honored traditions of Japan's past. Visits are by appointment only. Please call, write, or send e-mail if you would like to drop by to pick up some free literature and/or talk to an instructor about our various programs. Everyone is welcome to visit.
