Grandmaster Lee shares the magic and power of Lawai, a place that calms the spirit and stills the mind. As the first non-Japanese to have achieved the rank of grandmaster, he mastered the ancient Japanese ceremonial flute which originated in the 7th century. Riley Lee
attained the title of Grandmaster over 40 years ago with rigorous training, which included practicing barefoot in the snow and playing his flute under a waterfall. When he plays his shakuhachi at Lawai, he sets in motion the forces of earth and air, people and place, and the swirling power of the ha.
