Chinese calligraphy is the art of Chinese writing as well as the main expression of the Chinese identity, and thus the key to understanding the Chinese. The discipline of Chinese calligraphy ensures both physical and spiritual benefits. Students will discover the secret of the oldest surviving civilization, the key to its greatness and survival. While uncovering the mystery of calligraphy, one not only begins to see the world from a Chinese perspective but also ensures better understanding and communication between East and West. An insight into the Chinese worldview and perspectives, are vital for better analysis of information and interpretation of Chinese statistics, and help the Westerner to become less of an “outsider”. China’s rapid rise to power and increasing world influence, make it vital to go beyond the superficial knowledge of accumulated facts and figures about China, and gain a deeper and more valuable understanding, which will help to develop TRUST and GUANXI with the Chinese.
