About the artist

Pearl Weng Liang Huang will introduce the concept and method of working with brush and ink as a form of moving meditation. Group and individual participation will integrate the practice of chinese calligraphy with Tai Ji and Qi Gong.

Born in China, and trained in Chinese calligraphy, music and the arts, Pearl's life long practice of brush calligraphy as Tai Ji/Qi Gong moving meditation is the tradition of her family’s Living Tao Tai Ji form, and the teachings of her elder brother, Tai Ji Master, Chungliang Al Huang.
“Qi Gong is life force, and Tai Ji movement is the living form of life’s dance harmonizing with nature. Chinese brush calligraphy is Tai Ji and Qi Gong in motion, which can enhance our energy and maintain physical, emotional and spiritual balance.”
Many of the original forms and spiritual meanings of the powerful images of Chinese written language have sustained throughout the ages. Learning to create the symbols of the Chinese language through brush calligraphy is not only an aesthetic expression; it is also a way of life. It can express beauty, emotion, and primordial life force. Practicing Chinese calligraphy is a meditation for us to harmonize with nature and the Dao.

Pearl lives in Taos, New Mexico and offers classes and workshops in her studio, Ru Yi. For more information: www.ruyistudio.com or the HSU APASA Site: http://agoile.wix.com/pan-ap

This workshop is sponsored by All Under Heaven and is being presented in conjunction with Humboldt State University's Asian Pacific Islander American Student Alliance. This and other events are part of a weeklong festival March 25-30, 2013.
