SUMINAGASHI EXPERIENCE.

THE ART OF FLOATING INK THAT LIVES WITH WATER 

This method allows us to use the communicative power of images to be able to communicate with ourselves on a higher, deeper and more effective level.

Expressing emotions, feelings or thoughts through words, is often difficult or complicated because words are not enough or are inadequate. The visual/artistic language of images can help us to express what we cannot say out loud.

The experiential approach aims to simplify learning by facilitating the development of the person himself who, through the use of creative/artistic activities (sometimes immersed in natural environments), manages to have a different outlook on life, achieving an authentic connection with himself.

The ultimate aim is to stimulate and enhance one’s personal resources and potential by facilitating the work of self-knowledge, clarity, awareness and development of one's potential

Workshop

Each workshop is held in a context related to nature or art and amplified through music and food

Drawing inspiration from the very essence of Suminagashi, I have developed experiential workshops in three phases: preparation, execution and interpretation

The preparation is considered a real ritual, and the tools used play a role of fundamental importance. Each use is not random but designed for the person or context in question, with the aim of facilitating artistic expression and stimulating the creative side. All the techniques proposed are oriented towards simplicity of execution but with a surprising effect.

The execution in the creative process is closely linked to Japanese philosophy, where it is possible to release deep emotions and feelings, to surrender to the movement of the brush on the water and let it flow. The uniqueness of the gesture is characterised by the total absence of control over the drawing, soft, rhythmic and fluid movements. During the workshop you will learn the art of letting the ink go on the surface of the water, with minimal interference from the performer. Pure WU WEI, the Taoist precept of acting without forcing, in complete harmony with nature. 

In the third phase, the Suminagashi Experience offers a further route to knowledge through the guided interpretation of the drawings. Reading the work reveals information about our inner situation, puts us in deep contact with our feelings and inner representations, of which we are often unaware. This helps us to get in touch with our deepest self, giving voice to our soul.

Workshop Location

I choose the locations of my workshops carefully and accurately. The locations are to all effects the frame of a painting, which at first delimits the space, at the end embellishes the image, and always contains the expression. I choose locations that induce psychophysical well-being and support a sense of quiet, calm and relaxation. Harmony with nature is together.

creative experiential courses

Tailor-made workshops can be organised for specific needs, taking into account the duration of the intervention, the space, the number of participants and the objective or theme.

- Personal growth paths lasting about 1 hour and 30 minutes (individual or in couples), tailor-made for the person or the context at hand, favouring the experiential and creative approach that facilitates learning and development of the person, accelerating recognition and definition. The starting point is the uniqueness of the person: it is the person’s natural characteristics that trace the direction to be taken and a goal is set at a later stage.

 

-  Themed courses of various lengths, from 3 to 5 hours:

  • “The value we place on ourselves”
  • "Relationships”: interpersonal contact, emotional ties, communication
  • “Couple relationships” (for couples)
