Workshop in Bad Säckingen

Thank you to all those who took part in the Workshop in Bad Säckingen.

Great to see the familiar faces again after a long winter break and some new faces!

Compliment on your mindfulness!

Well done!!

Next Workshop in Bad Säckingen is on Sunday, the 8th. April.

Come and join if you live in the Basel area!!

The theme here was ” Cranes/ Tsuru ”

The cranes symbolize a long lasting love, relationship, good luck, a long life.

The text was ” Tsuru Ten ” : crane-sky

The Kanji 鶴 has 21 strokes and a complex composition with some major techniques.

天 has two side brushings and both Harai techniques. Relatively it has a simple straightforward balance line. One of the perfect Kanjis for the beginner to practise.

As we practise with one themed text here in the Bad Säckingen course, I suggested that a few new comers should concentrate on only 天 and those basic important techniques of the Kanji.

And

All did fantastic Shodo!

INFO:

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.
