I am so saddened to hear of the loss of Mieko Fuji. It is a loss to so many who had the great fortune to meet her and learn from her as well as those who have learned from her students. She was a very special human being…..talented, creative and brilliant as well as kind and generous. I have fond memories of being in her studio and in her workshops as well as sharing wonderful food she provided to an awed dance therapist from abroad. We are all fortunate to have had her in our lives in different ways. She was a pillar to the development of dance therapy in Japan and a friend to all she met. I shall light a candle in the USA in her memory.
