About this title

Synopsis:

This 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.

The Japanese Way of the Flower is now out of print, but the entire book is included in The Japanese Way of the Artist (Stone Bridge Press), which also contains Brush Meditation and Living the Japanese Arts & Ways. Get three popular books by H. E. Davey for the price of one. Order The Japanese Way of the Artist from Amazon.com and discover the secrets of Japan's ancient arts, crafts, and forms of meditation.

H. E. Davey is Director of the Sennin Foundation Center for Japanese Cultural Arts. He has decades of training in Japanese yoga, healing arts, martial arts, and fine arts. Ann Kameoka is a certified teacher of Ikenobo flower arrangement.

From the Publisher:

The Japanese Way of the Flower: Ikebana as Moving Meditation is part of Stone Bridge Press's MICHI: JAPANESE ARTS AND WAYS series. From chado--"the Way of tea"--to budo--"the martial Way"--Japan has succeeded in spiritualizing a number of classical arts. The names of these skills often end in Do, also pronounced Michi, meaning the "Way." By studying a Way in detail, we discover vital principles that transcend the art and relate more broadly to the art of living itself. Featuring the work of H. E. Davey and other select authors, books in the series MICHI: JAPANESE ARTS AND WAYS focus on these Do forms. They are about discipline and spirituality, about moving from the particular to the universal... to benefit people of any culture.
