International percussionist Yuji Nara will weave an improvisational tapestry of sound for the opening ceremonies of the Fourth Annual Taoist Gathering, to be held the last weekend of October in Oakland. Nara, who performs on instruments from Africa, South America and Asia, is one of many masters, scholars and practitioners who will take part in four days of special events and seminars that focus on the philosophical, healing and rituals aspects of contemporary Taoist practice. The Taoist Gathering is sponsored by Zhi Dao Guan, the first major Taoist Center in the Bay Area.
