Update! We will be hosting our Shakuju training this fall at the Hyatt House-Waltham and have taken the opportunity to include a negotiated reduced rate for participants for our July training even though it is being held at the Watertown Center for Healing Arts near to NESA. I realize this hotel is not as close as other hotels in the area, but the price is steeply discounted below market rate so we felt compelled to share.
