March 14 / 12:00 PM - March 14 / 12:00 PM
Our weekly 2-3 hour practice is in”functional silence.” During that time we clean up “old” arrangements and containers, prepare new materials (purchased and collected), a 10-20 minute sitting meditation, create”new” arrangements to be placed around the Center, clean up our working space (kitchen), walk around the Center together to look at and talk about each of the arrangements. The practice is finished with the Dedication of Merit (a very short chant that involves the transfer of what accumulates as a result (merit) of our good deeds during our practice). All are welcome. If you have questions contact Amy D. Aycrigg, the Ikebana Practice Coordinator.

for beauty. There is blessedness in serving beauty. There is blessedness in
creating beauty." Kadensho by Teshigahara Sofu (page 70).
