In this workshop, we will engage in different modes of attention, stimulating our receptivity and our agility of response. We'll sit zazen. We'll cultivate our close observation in a combination of writing and photography exercises. We’ll support each other’s work in an immersive, exploratory environment.
In this retreat, we will reflect on the daily practice of motherhood, with all that that includes. We will be writing personal narratives and engage in short periods of sitting and walking meditation, talk and discussion.
We will begin by exploring the 1700-year-old wisdom of East Asian calligraphy as we look at ancient Chinese masterpieces. Then we will engage the heart of the learning and creative process by faithfully copying selected ideographs in different styles.
