"If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change." Buddha
Mindful Flowers, a unique form of active meditation, weaves together mindfulness exercises with simple and easy-to-do floral designs inspired by the Japanese art form Ikebana.
This creative activity is a way of bringing meditation into everyday life while composing beautiful, contemporary floral arrangements.
Mindful Flowers inspires participants to see and experience wonder and beauty. This practice also cultivates awareness, presence and balance.
The Mindful Flowers Workshop
As you enter the Mindful Flowers experience, you leave your troubles and your cell phone at the door. The floral activity unfolds within a peaceful context of meditation exercises and breath work. Stylistically, the design exercise is simple and minimal. Participants open to an exploration of line, color, texture and space. This design focus invites a natural way to access present moment awareness.
