Ikebana is the traditional Japanese art of flower arrangement. Ikebana is more than flower arranging, however. Derived from Buddhist and Shinto practice, the art form is spirituality through paying attention and being present to beauty. In class, after learning some techniques and preparation, we will engage in the practice of Ikebana through the expressing of our own aesthetic sense. Through the practice of Ikebana, we will discover our heart in the flowers. The result of this process will prepare us well for a meditation session. In this way, Ikebana is a form of Zen meditation. If you want to get closer to yourself and others, Ikebana is not only a great interior meditative practice, but a bonding activity with loved ones or friends. Afterward, we can exchange ideas and impressions of our works in the manner of a salon.

Let’s enjoy Ikebana and refresh and enhance ourselves.
