About
The 2 hours experience include 30 mins Zen meditation and 90 mins Calligraphy session. Through Zen meditation, you will gain profound insights into how the mind works. Meditation involves observing and letting go of the thoughts and feelings that arise in the mind stream. You will find it unforgettable. For the calligraphy part, you just have to be enthusiastic and be willing to hold a brush. This is what you will get: - Gain knowledge of the Four Treasures (brush, ink, paper, and ink stone) - Learn writing techniques through one-on-one instruction - Understand the symbolic meaning of the Chinese characters you write - Try your hand at major styles of calligraphy: oracle, bronze ware, bamboo slab, and cursive - Create works of art in a soothing environment - Cultivate concentration with a relaxed mind and body - Appreciate the inner relationship between writing and Qi/breathing.

This was a Christmas present for my son and he very much enjoyed the meditation and calligraphy. Great teacher, great activity, great ambiente. A real touch of the other China, the real and timeless culture. The contact and information before was also very good. I really appreciated that the teacher took very good photos and videos, so I could see my son in action! Thank you - and next time I'm in Bejing I will come for a class, too!
