An #ensoaday: My month of Zen Circles and how it went global

An #ensoaday: My month of Zen Circles and how it went global

On the first day of June, I made an enso. You can read more about that here. After a few days of loving them, I decided to make an enso a day for a whole month.  A few days after that, I invited other people to join in on social media. Since then the project’s gone global and I’ve decided to extend it for another month. (More about that here.)

But beyond all of this, it’s just been me, living, breathing, creating day to day, and discovering more and more about the magic of this ancient meditative symbol as time went by. Enso, I have discovered, are a gateway and a threshold, they are the point where the empty, luminous, awake nature of reality takes form. They are completeness and wholeness and the peace that brings. They are a point in time and space, utterly unique and utterly impermanent.
