The Zen way of calligraphy is to write in the most straightforward, simple way as if you were a beginner, not trying to make something skillful or beautiful, but simply writing with full attention as if you were discovering what you were writing for the first time; then your full nature will be in the writing. This is the way of practice, moment after moment."    Richard Baker.

"In the beginner's mind there are many possibilities; in the expert's mind there are few."    Shunryu Suzuki.

"The mind of the beginner is empty, free of the habits of the expert, ready to accept, to doubt, and open to all the possibilities. It is the kind of mind which can see things as they are, which step by step and in a flash realize the original nature of everything."    Richard Baker.

These innovative systems use current technology to fundamentally alter the educational experience; The material comes alive for the students, and they learn by seeking answers to questions that naturally arise in a beginner's mind after participating in such an active experience.
