an opportunity to learn
IKEBANA
IKEBANA is a style of flower arrangement that the Japanese developed and have
appreciated for centuries. The rules of ikebana were discovered and established through
over 500 years of observing nature and the manner in which plants grow. It is used as a
spiritual “path” or “way” in which students learn to meditate and examine the concept of self
through flowers. Zen masters teach ikebana as a technique for restoring inner harmony. It can
also be used as a method for learning Japanese traditions and culture.
