Boundless Possibilities

The discovery of Emptiness, (ie, boundless space in all its connotations) is a deep positive source of creativity. Observing 'hidden' spaces is an exercise in perception of negative space and non-obvious pattern relationships The lasting benefits of these practices are an increased awareness of one's own 'boundless' inner-space and an introduction to methods of accessing the well of creativity within.

The principles behind this series have been inspired by the groundbreaking work of Dr Betty Edwards' "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain" and "Drawing on the Artist Within", as well as the teaching of Welsh master calligrapher and lettering designer Ieuan Rees; Zen Shodo master Kazuaki Tanahashi; and my many other honored teachers.

Yet, the power of emptiness is not solely in the visual realm, but every art and domain.

 The lasting benefits are an increased awareness of one's own 'boundless' inner-space and an introduction to methods of accessing the well of creativity within.


Any of these workshops can be adapted for institutional seminars, university or corporate retreat settings.
