Service Description

I grew up in Taiwan and never liked calligraphy as a child. Not till later in life, did I realize how useful calligraphy can be. More than 10 years ago, I started to practice calligraphy before painting to purify the excessive energy. It has become a regular prep work and part of the creative process. The breathing with each stroke helps to focus and even the temperament. Gradually I have learned how to generate peace within and the others. In 2020, during the dark period of the Covid lock down, it pushed me to get out there, to offer online workshops and share how I used calligraphy practice to calm and focus the mind in the midst of the pandemic. Since then several pockets of calligraphy communities have formed. Tea and calligraphy have been an integral part of my life. Té Company in Greenwich Village has generously offered their space and tea service for the workshop. We focus on breathing, hands-on practices in basic strokes, and blending in culture elements such as tea, ancient poems and painting appreciation. We explore and experience Eastern/Asian way of creation which is from within. And, Everyone is born with that ability. For everyone's well-being, only vaccinated people are allowed. This is a very small practice group, and the fee is not refundable and transferable. Té Company -163 W 10th St, New York, NY 10014
