Moving from Emptiness-The art and life of a Zen Dude

  • Where does creativity come from? Zen calligraphic painter Alok Hsu Kwang-han proposes that it arises from emptiness, from that silent space where the intelligence prior to thought resides. Armed with rice paper, ink, brush and a collection of Zen koans and teachings, Alok opens the door to a world of magical brush strokes and enchanted students. On the verge of his 75th birthday and with a new love in his life, Alok employs his teachings to confront his own personal history. Through his workshops and his art we share a journey of transformation that becomes possible when we are simply 'present, available, playful, and not knowing.' Through Alok we discover that 'in a clear heart, no mountain hides the moon.'


    Thought Exchange is a non-profit group dedicated to the expansion of consciousness.  All media used is for educational purposes only.


    Afterwards, there will be a discussion and food session where we discuss the benefits and lessons of this subject in relation to ourselves and others. Bring a dish to pass, not required, but encouraged.
