Due to unforeseen circumstances I am going to be sticking closer to home this summer. I am proposing to do 4 day in-house intensives here at Shugyo dojo. The dojo is on my property. I am going to limit it to 16 participants at a time. I can let a few stay at the house, others can find very cheap lodging a few minutes away. We can all eat here at night together or go out.
For those who might want to plan some fun activities around a trip here; We can travel together or you can go alone. There is Boston of course, an hour away. There is also an historic village (Sturbridge village in Sturbridge Ma.) fifteen minutes away.
