The announcements for the 2014 Asia-Oceania seminar are up at the IKYF site. Perhaps because of the overwhelming numbers last year (nearly 200 people), the seminar has been split into two, with a seminar/shinsa for practitioners from the US and Europe from April 9-13 and a separate seminar/shinsa for people from the Asia-Oceania region from April 14-18. For details check:
Dividing the seminars into two should improve the student/teacher ratio considerably, but I will miss meeting people from other parts of the world, especially friends from the US and Europe. Maybe I’ll drop in a day early to catch up and at least watch the shinsa.
The application deadline is 18 February, 2014.
