AN INTRODUCTION TO THE WAY OF THE BRUSH

Event Date: 
July 11, 2020
Event Location: 
Kinstone, S3439 Cole Bluff Lane, Fountain City, WI 54629

The purposeful use of brushes, ink and paper as a method of deepening the spiritual journey has been employed throughout the centuries by numerous traditions. In the Japanese tradition, this technique is referred to as “Shodo” or “The Way of The Brush.”  It is an insightful method that opens us up to receive great peace, balance and harmony into our lives via patient brush strokes.

In this introductory Shodo workshop, you will have the opportunity to experience the playful and profound dance of brush, ink and paper. Together, we will explore aspects of using The Way of the Brush as a meditative tool and create personal, meaningful Japanese Shodo ideograms that express our unique and creative selves. We will use dynamic Zen brushes to explore and access a level of wholeness of experience not otherwise possible. Developing an attentive relationship with the brush, ink and paper, allows you to access your deeper wisdom in a new and refreshing manner. Zen Brush is an expression of the soul.

There will be some time for participants to experience the sacred landscape and intentional spaces at Kinstone to inspire your body, mind and spirit. If you plan to wander outdoors, dress for the weather and wear sturdy walking shoes!
