Beginner Mind Black Mug


Add to wishlist

Named after the Monty Python character Ernest Scribbler, the Quibblers & Scribblers mascot, Baby Ernie, is a reminder to all creatives to keep a Zen ‘beginner mind’ in their approach to work and life, thoughts that are free of the preconceived notions, expectations, and biases that clutter a clear view of Existence.

In this version, he’s shown holding a traditional Japanese calligraphy brush with which he’s drawn a perfect circle that is structurally imperfect — known as an ‘enso’ — in ancient madder red, his favorite color. The traditional Chinese calligraphy on the other side under “Beginner Mind” means ‘Zen.’ Yes, we double-checked. Promise.

Everyone needs this sleek Zen mug to remind them of how to approach the day ahead.
