Learning mindfulness and creative reflection through Japanese calligraphy and ink painting. This special full-day workshop takes place in the art studio in Bethnal Green, London. One can sign up and book for a full-day workshop or one of the workshops.

Experience in Japanese calligraphy or ink painting, art skills are not necessary. Each participant from beginner to advanced level as well as professionally interested are welcome to discover and experience the essence of Shodo the art of Japanese calligraphy and the art of ink painting.


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-energy flow, conduct and apply it with brush and ink onto paper. Very meditative and self-reflecting process.

 Rie Takeda’s original Mindfulness-Method and her 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
