The Circle of Enlightenment – A Meditative Practice of Creativity
- Breathe Together Yoga
Join Tashi for a day of exploration in the meditative approach to creativity. Experience the creation of ensō as well as sacred seed syllables of the Tibetan calligraphy tradition Tashi upholds.
This is the first time Tashi teaches on the West Coast!
The Japanese tradition of ensō is chosen as an effective method which is suitable for anybody to partake. As the ensō’s straightforward simplicity is beyond any need to learn the complexities of a foreign language such as Japanese or Tibetan.
The mindful ritual of creating an Ensō naturally challenges the practitioner to be in an undistracted present state of nowness during the creative process, observing the grasping tendency of hesitation and anticipation – qualities one would observe and tame as a meditator as well as during yoga.
It is taught that “perfection is in the imperfection” as there should be no attachment to the created Ensō, resulting beautiful or ugly is inconsequential, but an honest recording of that moment in time, which nakedly reveals our pure state of mind.
