Kalapa Ikebana: A Contemplative Art - Way of Flowers
The contemplative art of flowers, ikebana or kado (the way of the flower), inspires us to pause and appreciate the immediacy of the seasons and our own state of mind. Traditional, expressive and deeply human, our instincts pull us toward presence in nature. Awakening our senses through arranging branches, flowers, water & space, with each stem we express a harmonious, fresh world. Through exploring this fathomless, disarmingly simple yet sophisticated art, we can settle down and uplift ourselves and others. Discover, deepen or rediscover your feeling for O-hana/flowers. Everyone welcome, new or with experience.
