"I teach Zen as art and art as Zen. This Zen art serves as a exhilarating path to our healing, awakening, and living our art of life."

"A Brush with Emptiness: Zen Creativity and the Art of life":

Alok will inspire and guide you to be rooted and move from your energy body, to rest in the spaciousness of your being, to become intimate with the power of not-knowing, and to allow your brush—or you—to dance from emptiness. read more

Zen Dude Movie

Zen Dude Movie

Moving from Emptiness: the Life and Art of a Zen Dude, is the award-winning feature documentary created by Shaeri Richards and Jerry Hartleben. It is the best introduction to the work that comes through Alok; it will inspire you to laughter, tears, silence and wonder. Available as on-line steaming or DVD on the filmmakers' website: zendudemovie.com


For experienced artists-- since I am now 77, I would like to pass on the Zen creativity that's been gifted to me, I didn't learn it from anybody, and which has evolved through me. I am available to a few sincere students who would like to study with me in depth. We begin with a 5-day individual immersion tutorial in my home studio in Sedona, Arizona, USA.

If you are interested, please view the documentary on ZenDudeMovie.com as well as what the individual tutorial students from London, Israel, and Brazil have shared on facebook.com/AlokZencalligraphy then send me an email: alok@zencalligraphy.com.
