About the Course
Create your own personal Enso
Enso, meaning “circular form” and usually translated into English as “Zen circle,” is the symbol supreme of Buddhist enlightenment.
Traditionally, the circle is drawn with only one brushstroke and is one of the most common subjects in Japanese calligraphy.
This techniqe combined with meditation allows the body to create by quieting the mind, hence also symbolising a moment when the body and spirit are free from the mind to simply create.
Kim will provide attendees with assistance in this ancient art form. Drawing an Enso is part of Buddhist meditation practise that focuses on allowing the body to create by quieting the mind, hence also symbolising a moment when the body and spirit are free from the mind to simply create. Through technique, knowledge and practice lead to self empowerment, helps in moving towards your goals in life, and embracing the beauty of imperfection.
You will not only learn this unique process but also practice the forms and complete the workshop with your own personal Enso to take home.
Carrying this symbol with you can help remind you that you already have everything you need to move towards your goals in life and that there is great beauty in all that is imperfect.
