I give special Shodo calligraphy workshops in Freiburg-Vauban.

I plan to give 10/11 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 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.

♧ Rie Takeda’s 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



Happy Practice!
