This month, DDYP friends are invited to attend a very special gathering: The Art of Calligraphy.
Calligraphy is the art of handwriting in Asia. Drawing and writing symbols on paper can be a silent reflection of the calligrapher's state of mind. Meditation through calligraphy can be a spiritual practice to help develop self-awareness and achieve inner peace.
If you are interested, please come join us on Saturday, September 21st, at 2:30 pm at 90-56 Corona Avenue, Elmhurst, NY 11373, the Chan Meditation Center. To sign up, please go to http://ddyp-sept-2013.eventbrite.com. The schedule is as below:
