Summer Kado Session

July 8, 22, 29, August 5, 19

IMG_0115[3]Summer is a wonderful time to practice t he contemplative art of Ikebana or Kado, Japanese flower arranging.

It brings together many elements so that we can have a more direct experience of all our sense perceptions. The practice cultivates an overall mindfulness/awareness and each arrangement becomes a reflection of our present state of mind.

Classes cover the basics of Ikebana from how to cut a stem to how to place plant materials in a container. There will also be exercises on perception and contemplations to help us find joy, harmony and authentic expression in creating arrangements. Class is open for each student, at their own pace, to explore materials, themes, Sogetsu curriculum, and individual curiosity. There will be both beginners and more experienced students in the classes.
