with Anjie Cho

June 19 - 21

NOTE: This program is open to a limited number of participants. Please register and place your deposit to reserve your space.

Kado means “The Way of Flowers”. The Flower Way began in China over 2300 years ago.  When it was introduced and assimilated into Japan, the Japanese word “Ikebana” arose, meaning “living or natural flowers”.  Kado is a contemplative practice that studies nature as it is.

Human beings are part of nature therefore we reflect and are expressions of the same patterns in our life and death.  Hence, we simultaneously study ourselves as we are when working with natural materials in Kado.

Using classical Ikebana forms, Kado teaches us to clearly see the wisdom in nature, in ourselves and in others.

The ultimate purpose in Kado is not to make pleasant flower arrangements, but cultivate appreciation for each moment, to work with obstacles, and to develop respect for ourselves, others and all forms of life.

No prior knowledge nor training in flower arranging is needed to take this class.


Please note: the Kado instructor has requested in lieu of an honorarium, that each student offer her a monetary Dana (generosity paramita) as a mirror of their open heart in receiving the dharma teachings.


Materials Fee: Please note that there will be a materials fee, estimated at $30 per person. The actual cost will be finalized closer to the program date.
