About the name “Sogetsu”
It is spelled 想月 in Japanese. 想 means “to think of or ponder” and 月 means “moon”. The director, Reiko Yamamoto received this name when meditating at Lake Tahoe one day. The Moon represents our need to be connected to the natural cycle of the Universe.
We hold our monthly meetings on the New Moon and make affirmations for the next month. We appreciate the cycle of nature and always remember to take a breath in order to be in the present moment. Our aim is to balance the Yin and Yang (Female and Male) energies.
