Now a single volume, three essential works on Japanese aesthetics, spirituality, and meditation. The Japanese Way of the Artist collects in their entirety three books on traditional Japanese arts and practices which share certain ideals and techniques to achieve the same goals: serenity, mind/body harmony, awareness, and a sense of connection to the universe:
Living the Japanese Arts & Ways presents 45 essential principles - like wabi, "immovable mind," and "stillness in motion" - that are universal in the Japanese classic tradition.
Brush Meditation introduces beginners and non-artists alike to Japanese calligraphy, and shows how even the most elemental stroke of ink and brush reveals your physical and mental state.
This edition contains an all-new introduction by the author. The entire text is complimented by diagrams, drawings, and photographs, plus information resources and glossaries of Japanese terms.
