Kanji Mushin Symbol Necklace: Mushin – ‘no mind’ is a Zen expression meaning ‘the mind without mind’, a state where the mind is not clouded by thoughts or emotions leaving the mind open to everything.
In Martial Arts, attaining the state of Mushin frees the practitioner from fear, anger or ego so that they are free to act towards an opponent without thought or hesitation. Rather than thinking ‘what to do’ the practitioners training takes over allowing the practitioner to act intuitively, freely and without thought.
Each Kanji necklace is individually hand painted – no two are alike – each is it’s own little piece of art.

The origins of Kanji and Kanji calligraphy date back to the 3rd century when fleeing Buddhist monks from China found sanctuary in Japan. Free from persecution, the monks developed a highly creative form of Kanji art which we see today.
Many eastern traditional spiritual leaders believe that through Kanji the inner Ki (Chi) is both re-affirmed and strengthened. As in yoga and the martial arts, connecting with the inner self brings focus – focus brings peace of mind, body and spirit.
Each Kanji symbol is representative of a persons inner Ki/Chi (spirit). Express and strengthen your own inner Ki/Chi with our unique handmade uisex Kanji pendant necklaces.
