Ensō Farm & Forage
discover nature's genius

what is an ensō?

In Zen Buddhism, an ensō is a circle that is hand-drawn in one or two uninhibited brushstrokes to express a moment when the mind is free to let the body create. Similarly, when foraging in nature, the mind must be empty yet sharply aware.
