Jay Rinsen Chikyo Weik leads a retreat workshop at the Toledo Zen Center on May 18, 2008.
"Mindful creativity - or Zen art, if you will - requires a certain kind of consciousness to be able to really call itself Zen art. There's a quality required, expressed in the body, of tranquillity; open, receptive, clear, awake presence. It's absolutely essential. In other words, not discriminating, not judgmental, not tangled up in ideas and concepts."
