Japanese flower arranging, also called Kado or Ikebana, can be practiced as a contemplative art. Under the guidance of Marcia Shibata, students learn to create flower arrangements, and experience Kado as a creative and meditative dance with nature, space, and perception. Like meditation, Kado teaches us to really look at what is before us.


Due to limited space and cost of materials, there is a $50 deposit to reserve your spot in the weekend. Please note that your space in the program is not guaranteed without this minimum $50 deposit.


If you need to cancel, this $50 deposit is only refundable if you cancel before Monday evening Dec 2nd (due to materials and other associated costs).



Marcia Shibata, a student of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, is classically trained in the major schools of Ikebana and works with students throughout the world. She is one of the strongest inspirations behind the resurging practice of Kado, the contemplative art of flowers and branches.
