About the Workshop

The Breath Brushwork is a 4-week 60-minute encounter to cultivate the mind, heart, and body alignment with the brush. This is a concentration, attention, and mindfulness meditation training workshop on the internal and external practice of embodied mind.

We will start each session with formal calm-abiding meditation using the breath for 10 to 15 minutes, use contemplative creative practice (10 to 15 min) and continue to alternate between breathwork and brushwork meditation. The contemplative creative approaches are introduced as an adjunct to your practice of mindfulness and meditation.

**THIS WORKSHOP IS NOT art therapy, and it is not meant as a calligraphy workshop.

This is not a substitute for training in Buddhist Psychology and Philosophy, brushwork calligraphy, calligraphy, or any mental health professions and creative art therapies.




  • No artistic experience is needed.

  • Regular practice of mindfulness is preferred for this workshop, but not mandatory.




  • Introduction to calm-abiding practice (Shamata) to develop attention, concentration, and mindfulness.

  • Explore the concentration methods with breath and lines.

  • Cultivate a regular contemplative creative practice with brushwork.
