Essential to age-old Samurai, and practiced by modern day Tea Masters, zanshin is a mind that is calm yet continually aware of, and in tune with, surroundings. An elevated expression of peak performance; one of focused detachment and effortless flow.
ZANSHIN / PAST
550 years ago, a strange sight on the battlefield – a teahouse, erected by the Samurai’s own tea masters. They knew the importance of facing battle with a focused and collected mind – after all, the wrong decision could mean not living to fight another day.
ZANSHIN / PRESENT
Watch them – the art of flow. Whether during tea ceremony, kendo, calligraphy or flower arranging, the modern master’s mind is still, yet totally immersed in every moment.
