I’d like to share an Otehon text TOMODACHI 友達: Friend/friendship.
This is a great text to practise various Harai techniques.
I know the SHINNYO radical is often a tricky one to practise for many learners. But trust me- More practise, better you get!
And it is such a beautiful movement your body would always remember!
My tip: please pay attention to the energy movement, specially “up-and-down” contrast in SHINNYO.
【友】 Tomo/ Yuu
Is developed from the pictograph of two hands: giving hands and helping each other, further developed into the meaning of sharing a same spirit/will.

A snap from my workshop in July .
Thank you very much for your support this year!
The end of year is the busiest season in Japan just like pre-Christmas time in Europe.
The actual 31st December is called OMISOKA 大晦日.
In order to welcome the new year with a transparent fresh mind, families come together to clean up the house clearing the dirt of the old year.
Normally it becomes so quiet and empty in the cities as many go back to their home town during this time.
Here is the perfect text to finish off the year!
; New Year’s Eve, end of year
年 Toshi ：year, season, years
越しKoshi : to transit, go over
Good bye the year of the Dog!!
Enjoy the last hours of 2018!
Shakyou Calligraphy ” set was packed for the camping retreat!
I did the brush meditation in pure nature.
It was just a beautiful experience – sharpening my senses….

Red-crowned cranes are one of the most loved and respected animals in Japan.
Thank you to everyone who participated the workshop on last Sunday despite the icey weather!
All did excellent brush movements and surely beautiful mindfulness-process.
The next workshop in Freiburg is on Sunday the 19th. February.
I will post those calligraphy texts one by one as O-tehon soon.
