JAPANESE PHILOSOPHY OF ZANSHIN

 – Zanshin; essential to age-old Samurai, and practiced by modern day Tea Masters, zanshin is a mind that is calm, aware of surroundings and present in every moment.

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.

In our own lives we can embrace the ritual of the tea ceremony, and the philosophy of zanshin, to help us to find this more present state of mind.

WATCH - 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.

These short-films show this elevated expression of peak performance; one of focused detachment and effortless flow.
