About the Artist
14th - 22nd August 2015
Tibetan Calligraphy/meditation retreat, perhaps the first of its kind in the West. This eight-day course in the art of Tibetan handwriting was held in the conducive and beautiful border countryside of Wales. The calligraphy-meditation retreat consisted of how to properly construct the classical Uchen script, from the foundation of the alphabet through to the many subjoined letters, onto forming words and sentences in a coherent and beautiful formation. The remaining days of the retreat focused on forming traditional mantras as well as seed syllables as a useful aid to Buddhist visualisation practices. This retreat proved very successful and will be held annually on each of the other traditional Tibetan scripts such as the Umed styles.
