Ikebana, or Kado (The Way of Flowers) is a traditional Japanese art form rooted
in the spiritual traditions of Shinto and Buddhism. As such, it is a vehicle for
developing the inner spirit by bringing awareness into the present moment and
expanding that awareness to recognize one’s intrinsic connection to nature.
Joan Kydd, a licensed teacher of the Sogetsu School of Ikebana, has taught
classes and workshops at Karme Choling, Dartmouth College, and in New York
The workshop will include both demonstration and hands-on experience.
Participants are asked to bring Ikebana clippers or strong gardening clippers, a
pitcher (for water), and a bowl for cutting. Containers, kenzans, and flowers
will be provided.
Space is limited to 7 participants, so please register early. If there is a lot of
interest, Joan has kindly agreed to lead a second workshop in the afternoon as

deposit is due on Monday, June 11th (so Joan can order flowers).
