The Heart Sutra as Sacred Writing

Receiving the wisdom of the Heart Sutra while giving the sutra back to the world, this is the practice of sutra copying or "shakyo" in Japanese. This class for beginners will provide a brief history of sacred writing in Asia and an opportunity for students to make a copy of the sutra themselves. Bring a small brush, sumi-e ink, and stone if you have them. If not, materials will be provided.
