Integrating the Hakomi Principles and Ikebana, the art of Japanese Flower Arranging:
I was first introduced to Hakomi in 1981 in Boulder, Colorado, and was immediately captivated by the gentleness and depth of the method. About that same time, I began to attend Shambhala Training meditation weekends. In addition to the sitting practice, the meditation hall had the most unique and heart-stirring flower arrangements I had ever seen. I learned that this was actually a sophisticated art form called ikebana which was taught through hundreds of distinct Japanese schools.
Taoist thought. Most notably, the Hakomi Principles of Loving Presence, Unity, Non-Violence, Organicity (organic inner wisdom), Holism and Mindfulness all had relevance in the application of ikebana and other Dharma arts.
Now, for the first time, I am excited and honored to present a workshop which explores the connection between these two disciplines. — GREGORY GAISER
