Through ink, brush and yoga

Yoga teaches that what we believe to be the self is in fact the ego which stands separate from life. The True self or the Atman is the ultimate essence of the universe as well as the essential being in humans.

This workshop combines yoga and brush and ink techniques in a way that takes the student into an inner, fluid and interconnected world where the outer layers of the ego melt away to reveal our inner nature.
Pool of resources: Yoga - movement, posture, sound, relaxation, concentration and meditation practices; Brush and Ink - Ink Mixing, Japanese Ink Painting and Japanese Calligraphy techniques, Poetry and Intuitive Painting.

In this approach to Sumi e (Japanese Ink Painting) and Shodo (Japanese Calligraphy), appreciation and practise of timeless traditions, focusing on one's innate energies, balance of body and mind and improvisation are covered in a spirit of calmness and good humour.


Short courses in Japanese Ink Painting and Calligraphy

Traditional Japanese calligraphy and many techniques of sumi painting require the practitioner to follow a prescribed choreography of ink, brush, paper, posture and breath. This develops a deeper mindfulness, a refinement of perception and a focussing of one’s innate energies. This approach will be complimented with recognition of each student’s uniqueness and a chance for them to improvise with brush and ink.
