I give special Shodo calligraphy workshops in Freiburg-Vauban.

I plan to give 11 workshops throughout a year. 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.


Learning mindfulness though Japanese calligraphy”

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 one’s individual mindfulness process by special designed practices. So students can learn little by little how to concentrate on their own Qi (living energy) flow, conduct and apply it with brush and ink onto paper.

  • mind and body connection
