I am going to start special Shodo calligraphy workshops in Freiburg from October 2016.  I plan to give 10/11 workshops throughout a year till 2017 summer. Each month there will a particular theme for calligraphy texts, and specific calligraphy styles to practise. That would be a perfect opportunity to try out Shodo Japanese calligraphy and for Shodo learners to practise regularly.


Experience in Japanese calligraphy is not necessary. Each participant from beginner to advanced level can discover and experience the essence of Shodo the art of Japanese calligraphy. The Participants can learn to focus on bringing the balance of mind and body together as well as a one’s individual mindfulness process by special designed practices. So students can learn little by little how to concentrate on their own Qi flow, conduct and apply it with brush and ink onto paper.

♧ My concept of teaching SHODO calligraphy is focused on:

  • mind and body connection
  • discovering individual inner quality and peace
  • “hands-on” guidance
  • inner balance
  • “Here and Now” momentum flow
  • mindfulness process
  • de-stressing the body tension
  • conscious breathing
  • raising Qi(energy) flow and awareness

Any question, I would be happy to hear from you!
When you sign up for the workshop, please write your experience/level in Shodo Japanese calligraphy. If you have already got calligraphy tools, you could bring along and show me.
