Ikebana : Japanese Flower Arranging for Beginners and Non-Beginners


with Brooke Pohl
April 26 / 9:00 AM - April 27 / 5:00 PM

Program Discounts Available!


Kalapa Ikebana, founded by Chögyam Trungpa in 1982, joins the two practices of mindfulness and ikebana. In this workshop 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.


Sunday's class will focus on working with containers - making them the focus of the arrangement. People can bring unusual ones to use or share that they might find challenging or interesting. 


Lunch will be offered both days at a cost of $10/day.


**Please Note: The cost of this class includes all materials.  The $35 deposit for this class is non-refundable. It is required to hold your spot in this class. The $35 will be applied to the full price of the class. Those requesting tuition assistance will still need to pay the materials fee.
