In this episode, I’m really excited to have as my guest, Will Reed, a Japanologist with over four decades of experience in Japan, and in-depth knowledge of the Japanese language and culture.

Will is a Professor of Japan Studies at the International College of Liberal Arts (iCLA) at Yamanashi Gakuin University, where he teaches Japanese and International Students from over 30 Countries. He is the author of several books in English on Aikido and Shodo (The Way of the Brush), and has written a number of books in Japanese as well. Today, we talk about his just released book “Song of the Brush, Dance of the Ink”

In our discussion, Will talked to me about:

  • What lessons we can take from Shodo - the way of the brush
  • Finding balance, space, and inspiration through focus
  • Being fully present in every performance and getting out of your own way.
