The Shumei International Institute celebrated its 15th anniversary in May this year. This year’s anniversary theme was “Ecology and Spirituality—Think Globally, Act Locally”. The anniversary event was a one day event starting at 10:30 AM on Saturday May 20, with an Anniversary Sampai officiated by Sensei Tamao Koyama joining us from Shumei’s headquarters in Japan.


Shumei was very pleased to host Satish Kumar, Indian Activist, Editor of Resurgence Magazine and founder of Schumacher College in the UK will be our special guest at this year’s anniversary.


There was a public luncheon, special art exhibition, garden tours, taiko concert and an interactive presentation with Satish Kumar. The day’s festivities ended with Shumei’s traditional World Peace Prayer Sampai starting at 5:30 PM during which Shumei centers from around the world joined hearts and minds with a common intention for peace with us in Crestone.


We hope you will join us in celebrating 16 years in the Crestone Community next year!
