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

Tutorial Retreats

New  For experienced artists: As I am turning 80 years old-and-young in October, 2018, I would like to pass on to a few sincere students who would like to study with me in depth the Zen creativity that has arisen in me and evolved through me . We begin with a 5-day individual tutorial retreat at 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.

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. Shaeri came to Alok's workshop in Sedona, went home and told her husband, Jerry, a veteran Hollywood director and cinematographer. They first wanted to do a short "art" film about Alok's work, but got caught up in the energy of Zen Creativity.  33 hours of filming later, with no editorial or financial input from Alok, they created this stunning and transformational 69 minute documentary. Available as on-line steaming or DVD on the filmmakers' website: zendudemovie.com Thank you, Shaeri and Jerry!
