"Mind, Hear and your Hand will come to the connection through your Brush".
Hi, I'm Angelia Yingge Xu, an ink brush artist. I believe ink painting/ calligraphy is not only an art format, but also a way to get connected with yourself, to be present and to know yourself...

2 Day Online Retreat
A deep dive into calligraphy ligature in semi-cursive script
Started 18 Sep 2021Started 18 Sep 2021
If you have already been introduced to East Asian Brush work and are looking to deepen your practice, this is a retreat for you.
During this two-day retreat we will complete a close study ideograph “Qi’’ (“氣”). As the best way to know an ideograph is to study its formal script, we will begin by reviewing and practising all the strokes and the brush sequence in its formal script, we will then bring our practice one step further - into the semi-cursive mystic brush dance!
On the second day, we will start with brush exercises of calligraphy ligature and study semi-cursive script of the ideograph “Qi’’ (“氣”). ONE MORE SENTENCE/STATEMENT HERE WHY DAY 2 IS EXCITING/REWARDING.
We will begin each session with simple movement and breathing exercises of Kum Nye (a yoga from the Tibetan Buddhist tradition) - suitable for people of all ages and fitness levels - which restores the body’s natural rhythms and calms the mind so we can be present and at ease for our brush journey.
