Michi, Japanese Arts and Ways #2: The Japanese Way of the Flower: Ikebana as Moving Meditation Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This second volume of "moving meditations" shows how simple Japanese flower arranging (ikebana) techniques can be used to refresh the body and restore the spirit. Emphasizing that ikebana is first and foremost a "Way"--a spiritual and meditative art--the book offers solid grounding in Japanese aesthetics and philosophy, with references to Zen, tea ceremony, and other traditional Japanese arts. Line drawings and color photographs show step-by-step arrangements especially for beginners and casual practitioners.
