Peaceful practice following the poetic and inspiring sutras

The practice of Shakyo is a meditative and spiritual practice offered in many temples in Japan. It often starts with reading or chanting then a bow before beginning to slowly trace the original text of a chosen Buddhist Sutra.

People do this with care to mindfully copy each character, and often people find the experience is peaceful, and nourishes wellbeing. It doesn’t matter whether your writing is good, and you don’t need to have faith in Buddhism or knowledge of Japanese at all. Sutras can be copied in Japanese or English. For many people Shakyo can also be a dedication to their ancestors. And for monks it is a regular part of their temple activity.

This is a quiet practice harmonising body and mind, dating to around the 7th century Tang Dynasty, where you can grind your own ink and use a small calligraphy brush and Japanese paper, or alternatives.

No previous experience is needed. You don’t need to have calligraphy materials, and we will email you about what you can use in advance of the event.

Booking is through Eventbrite, after you book we will email you the Zoom link and details for the group. Sorry but tickets are non-refundable. Feel free to come early for a cuppa and settle in.
