Twenty people come up at a time for this ritual brush practice guided by Barbara Bash. Everyone bows together, then each person in their own time makes a circle on the page – a symbol of wholeness. When everyone is finished, all bow together, then fold up their brushstrokes and lay down a fresh sheet of paper for the next person.
