What is Tao Calligraphy?
Tao Calligraphy is a unique form created by Master Zhi Gang Sha that builds on the ancient meditative practice of Chinese calligraphy writing by infusing the unique form of one-stroke Yi Bi Zi calligraphy with Tao light, blessings, and messages of the Greatest Tao qualities of love, forgiveness, compassion, and much more. Master Sha’s Tao Calligraphy is Oneness writing that carries frequencies and vibrations that bless everyone in its presence.
Master Sha first learned the ancient form of single-stroke Yi Bi Zi calligraphy from the now 106-year-old Professor Li Qiu Yun, who learned the art from Tai Shi (太师 ), the teacher of the emperor’s and royal family’s children during the Qing Dynasty, the last imperial dynasty in China. After mastering Yi Bi Zi writing, Master Sha created his own very unique Tao calligraphy. The State Ethnic Academy of Painting, China, has given the highest honors to Master Sha with appointments to the positions of National Chinese Calligraphy Dr. and Professor, Honorable Researcher Position, and National and Overseas Board of Advisors Consultant. On March 18, 2017 a very successful opening of an exhibit of Master Sha’s Tao Calligraphy was held at the Cultural Palace of Nationalities in Beijing, attended by numerous well-respected government officials and artists.
Tao Calligraphy brings together the essential Taoist principles of following the Way, uniting humanity and Heaven, and cultivating health and longevity with the power of soul, heart, mind, and body. This unique combination heightens the powerful natural force within us and the universe to come together as One in harmony and balance.
