Kalapa Ikebana Class Series, with Lisa Stanley


with Lisa Stanley
May 8 / 6:30 PM - June 12 / 8:30 PM

The cost of this class does not include flower materials.


Kalapa Ikebana, founded by Chögyam Trungpa in 1982, joins the practices of mindfulness and ikebana. In this class we will work with our state of mind as we engage in arranging flowers using the elements of heaven, earth and human. Training in this way helps us to connect fully to our world with non-aggression and to express our heart and mind through flowers. New and experienced students are welcome.

Lisa Stanley has been a meditation practitioner since the late 1970's. She was introduced to ikebana in 1981 as an assistant to Trungpa Rinpoche (the founder of Shambhala) for his Dharma Art exhibition. Since that time she has trained in ikebana in the United States and Japan. She is a Master Teacher with the Sogetsu School and teaches Kalapa Ikebana as a way to wake up with flowers. Ms. Stanley is also a Senior Teacher of Shambhala Art.


June 5th will be a group practice day with Amy Aycrigg leading.  Amy Aycrigg is the Center Ikebana Practice Coordinator.
