Chabana Workshop with Barbara Strauss
February 22, 2020 –
Barbara Strauss was introduced to Zen in the 1990s through reading Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind. She continued her exploration of Zen through study of Ikebana and tea ceremony. She now leads workshops in these arts. On Saturday afternoon, February 22 (exact time TBA) Barbara will lead a workshop for BZC chidens on Chabana, the way of tea flowers. The workshop will teach our chidens Zen traditions of flower arranging. If you would like to become a chiden and attend this event, please talk to the head chiden, Mark Copithorne. For years we have turned to Barbara when we want our best flower arrangements for our high ceremonies and she has been generous with her art and expertise. We are grateful for her contribution.
