Brush Meditation: A Japanese Way to Mind & Body Harmony
by H. E. Davey SenseiStone Bridge Press
"Your highest objective is to become one with the vibrant rhythm of nature and to let this pulsation flow out through the brush." -H. E. Davey
Expanded attention, deeper relaxation, increased focus and resolve
As a highly ranked, well-respected instructor of various arts, including classical martial arts, Japanese yoga, and shodo (calligraphy), H. E. Davey is able to discuss shodo in terms of wider spiritual and philosophical implications for the non-practitioner and, indeed, for anyone seeking insights and ideas from Asian culture and traditions. This is an unusual talent and a rare gift, and Davey speaks from an unusual perspective of awareness, position, and repute.
-Wayne Muromoto, publisher, Furyu: the Budo Journal
H. E. Davey combines a remarkable technical facility in the Japanese art of the brush with a deep understanding of its spiritual profundities. His book offers a marvelous practical introduction to Japanese calligraphy as well as insights into the essence of this art. It is a unique and fascinating presentation of a little-known art of self-cultivation.See the excerpt from Brush Meditation that was published in the Summer 1999 issue of Michi Online: Journal of Japanese Cultural Arts.
