I am positively impressed by those finished art works.
Thank you to all of you –

Happy Practice !
Are you already enjoying your Shodo practice in a warm cozy room with some candles on?!
When it comes to practising Shodo, Autumn and Winter seasons are great for us to refind a inner silence and develop a deeper sense of mindfulness.
Today I post a perfect seasonal Otehon for here and now.
Otehonn text “shimobashira 霜柱”
: しもばしら/ シモバシラ
-English: Frost pillar, Frost columns
-German: Frost Kristalle, Raureif
-霜 shimo : Frost
-柱 bashira : Column, Pillar
-Level: beginner to intermediate
-Brush size: medium to big, for both hard and soft haired
– make sure the difference between the side brushing and the direct brushing
– a clear 1-2-3 movement in the corner techniques
– left Harai technique, always wait for the cursive point.
– check all types of bending strokes
– check the middle line and composition balance
Enjoy your Shodo hours”
I give a Shodo course in Basel since this September.
It has been great to see these beautiful participants making lots of progress and challenging their mindfulness process every time.
Compliment on their calligraphy pieces and the “shou-nen 正念” right mindfulness!
