The school Sosekido (素石堂) was formed by my sensei, Unkotsu Komine (小峰雲骨) many years ago. I was 13 years old when I first met him, and it was the beginning of my long-time calligraphy path.

Calligraphy Workshop -Heart Sutra-

The workshop, Heart Sutra -Acceptance- was held on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th of December 2022 at Tamaro in Berlin.  The theme of this year was “acceptance”. As I wanted to create a Zen temple atmosphere where we practice 262 letters of the Heart Sutra in peaceful mind. 

Each participant made their own Heart Sutra book. The result was just beautiful and everyone’s face was shining with proud.  

The workshop ended with a Zen lunchbox from iloha_kitchen. Pretty to see, tasty in your mouth and happy in your tummy. 

Thank you for joining my workshop. I have learnt a lot from you all!
