In the Zen tradition, Mushin, literally “without mind” or “without heart” translates to “without striving” or “without deliberate intention”and reflects the idea of letting go of material aspirations.

Tommer Peterson began his study of Japanese calligraphy with Kazoku Saito Sensei in Kyoto in 1989. He also studied with Shumpo Akashi, Yoshiyasu Fujii, and Hiroshi Takahata. His work has been exhibited at the Mainichi Shodo Ten (Tokyo), Kyoto Prefectural Exhibition Hall (Kyoto), The Frye Museum (Seattle), The Islamic Cultural Center (San Francisco), and is represented by Kobo Gallery (Seattle).
