NYZ: Tao Te Ching Summer Calligraphy Workshop

July 26 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

nyz callig

June 7 – Aug 2, 2024 (No class on 7/5)

Join Ines Sun for an eight-week calligraphy course based on Lao-Tzu’s Tao Te Ching. The evening will begin with tea in silence. After tea, each week we will focus on calligraphy characters related to a single chapter of the Tao Te Ching. As we read and write the text together, we will gain a deeper insight into the meaning by connecting with some of the original characters. This course is designed as a series, but each individual class may be taken separately.

The Tao Te Ching summer calligraphy workshop will use the Thomas Cleary translation with commentary from a 17th century Rinzai Zen Master, Takuan Soho and The Wisdom of Laotse by Li YuTang, a renowned 20th Century writer with an intellectual and spiritual approach.

You may wish to obtain your own copy, though there will be one available to read together at the workshop. All calligraphy supplies will be provided. Prior experience is helpful, but not required. ZSS Health Protocols apply.
