“Inspired by the philosophy of Mokichi Okada, Shumei Internatinal Institute help people of the world realize that they are world citizens able to act for the common good.” – Mission Statement

The Shumei International Institute (SII) is a Colorado not for profit organization whose home office is in Crestone, Colorado. It is the third of three sacred sites for Shumei worldwide, the only one outside of Japan and represents the element of earth. Like any Shumei center worldwide our activities center around the three principal tenets of Mokichi Okada, Shumei’s founder’s, teachings; Jyorei, Natural Agriculture and art & beauty. In addition, SII’s mission (above) gives us the additional focus of world citizenship. We wish to provide an open, accessible atmosphere for people to learn more about and engage in any area of our practice that might be of interest.
