Japanese flower arranging, also called Kado or Ikebana, can be practiced as a contemplative art. Under the guidance of Marcia Wang Shibata, students learn to create flower arrangements and experience Kado as a creative and meditative dance with nature, space, and perception. Like meditation, Kado teaches us to really look at and work with what is before us.
