An Evening with Zen Master and Calligrapher Shodo Harada Roshi
Explore the art of calligraphy during a demonstration by Zen master Shodo Harada Roshi. After a brief overview of calligraphy's history, the Roshi will share his personal journey both as a monk and with this spiritual art form. Creating large-scale scrolls in St. Francis Auditorium, he will demonstrate the process behind this Zen practice.
A translator will provide on-going commentary to the Roshi's live demonstration. A closed-circuit video feed will provide the audience an almost up-close viewing experience. The scrolls will be on view after the demonstration.
The scrolls, other calligraphy art, and the Roshi's books will be available for purchase after the demonstration.
Co-presented with the One Drop Zen Community of Whidbey Island, Puget Sound, Washington.
