Ikebana (Japanese traditional flower arrangement) class in the center of KyotoLuxury Tours

Ikebana (Japanese traditional flower arrangement) class in the center of Kyoto

The art of flower arranging[Ikebana]has began about 1400 years ago with the beginning of Buddhism in Japan. People wishing to honor Buddha with gifts of flowers wanted them arranged artistically. The first style was the Rikka style. These arrangements were formal and difficult to compose. Buddhist priests used an even simpler style, and Kado, the study of flower arranging, became more popular than ever. Harmony is the goal of the art of flower arranging, and the basis for arrangements is the triad of Heaven-Earth-Human. Don’t you try to make your own beautiful flower arrangement with Kado master?

Zen Meditation for Life in KyotoCraft Classes

Zen Meditation for Life in Kyoto

Kyoto has been the principal home of Zen since its introduction to Japan from China at the beginning of the 13th century. Kyoto is therefore rightly famous for its Zen-influenced gardens, etc. However, the heart of Zen is the practice of meditation, for meditation is the very meaning of the word “Zen.” Given this, it is ironic there are so few opportunities for short-term visitors to Kyoto to have more than a brief introduction to Zen meditation while visiting Zen temples. Thus, this workshop is unique in providing an extended, in-depth introduction to both the theory and practice of meditation (zazen) under the guidance of American-born, Sōtō Zen Buddhist priest and scholar Rev. Dr. Brian Victoria. Rev. Victoria will introduce you to both the theory and practice of Zen meditation, employing traditional meditation cushions (or chairs if needed) in a private meditation hall. By workshop completion, participants will become confident in their ability to continue meditating on their own.
