Room: West Loop Shambhala Center, 37 N. Carpenter St.
You are invited to join your heart and mind with nature.   Ikebana, an ancient Japanese art form, combines nature with creativity to open a path to self discovery.  This mindfulness practice can reflect one’s state of mind and affect one’s awareness and perceptions of self and surroundings.  In this workshop we will work with our state of mind as we engage in arranging flowers using the elements of heaven, earth and human.   Training in this way helps us to connect fully to our world with non-aggression and to express our heart and mind through flowers.   Explore what this means and how it feels !  New and experienced students are welcome.  Cost of the workshop includes flowers to work with.
 
Note that class size is limited to 15!
