Ink Is Like Blood

Red Enso Circle

Red Enso Circle

I regularly marvel at and am deeply grateful for the transformation that I experience after a session of practice drawing the Enso Circle. I can start out stressed from a hard day at work and end up feeling clear, happy, energized, and joyful. I have always felt that enso practice was a secret tool that I could use to re-energize myself.  I feel healed when I draw the Enso. Because of it, I feel that ink is like medicine, it is like blood. I feel so transformed, I feel like I am receiving a life transfusion. The practice refreshes my life force. This is one of the reasons that I am so enthusiastic about sharing the Enso Circle as a mindful art practice.
