Miyazaki's nature, natural stones, and breath

LiniE × Breathe and Remember Miyazaki Retreat



Everyone has their own unique charm and potential.

This is a three-day retreat to remember this through the nature, stones, and breath of Miyazaki.


The event is co-hosted by Fumie Niimi, founder and designer of the jewelry brand 'LiniE', and Mami Matsunaga, a certified instructor of breathing and bodywork.


[From Niimi Fumie]

"LiniE's brand concept is 'CONNECT with NATURE, PEOPLE and ME'. To Native Americans, natural stones are considered to be supernatural beings that store ancient knowledge. That's why it's said that 'natural stones are light', but humans also have light (charm and potential) inside of them. When natural stones and people, each of which has its own light, 'connect and harmonize' with each other, they become even more radiant. I wanted to create an opportunity to actually experience this in the great outdoors of Miyazaki Prefecture, so I planned this retreat."



[From Mami Matsunaga]

"When you catch your breath, your true self emerges. Experiencing your true self, experiencing it as your true self. I believe this is the joy of living. This retreat is intended to be three days of sharing this joy. Nature is beyond human understanding. Stones, which seem to have been squeezed together from various parts of nature, are also incredible. Humans, who are part of nature, are also incomprehensible beings. Let's awaken our primitive selves and spend three days playing with life."
