Flower Arranging as Meditation in Action

with Rebekah Younger
April 27 / 9:00 AM - April 27 / 1:00 PM

Ikebana, the Japanese Way of Arranging Flowers, has its origins in Shintoism and Buddhism. These arrangements were created as shrine offerings in Buddhist temple. At the Shambhala Center, we offer flower arrangements to uplift the space and create a mirror for awake mind.

In this workshop, we will practice flower arranging as a contemplative practice. Rebekah Younger will lead a discussion about heave, earth, and humanity principle.

What to bring: Please bring an Ikebana container and a kenzan if you have them. Please also bring clippers or cutting shears as the Shambhala Center has a limited supply.

Who should attend: Beginners or seasoned Ikebana practitioners are encouraged to attend. If you are interested in joining our group that arranges flowers at the Shambhala Center, called Padma Ikebana, please let us know (email:
