Room: 1st Floor Meditation Hall
Program Registration is Closed.

Kalapa Ikebana is a contemplative practice in the Japanese art form of flower arranging. These unique teachings combine the traditional forms of various schools of Ikebana, with the teachings of Shambhala.

Kalapa Ikebana, elucidated by the great meditation master and artist, Chogyam Trungpa, Rinpoche, mixes these traditional teachings with mindfulness awareness practice. Training in joining heaven, earth and humanity, class participants create art that shows no separation between the artist and the viewer of the arrangement. The environment has been changed.

This class is intended for both complete beginners and those who are currently involved in ikebana practice at the Centre.

Demonstration will be followed by creation of your own arrangement, with plenty of time for one-on-one support from the teacher.

Cost: $30.00 includes flowers you will take home.
