A Taste of Japan - The Five Elements Of Life Workshop

25th November & 9th December 2017




Enliven your senses, connect deeper into your soul and explore Japanese art and culture with this Mind, Body and Energy Workshop

This is a special workshop being held over 2 days where we will explore the elements of nature, earth water fire air and space through the lens of MeditationShodo (Japanese calligraphy) and Ikebana (Japanese art of flower arranging)

In this special event we will have two guest teachers sharing their skills, Junko Azukawa who ran a workshop at MRC last year, and Chieko Yazaki who is a master of Ikebana. Both will be creating a supportive space to learn and explore mindfulness meditation through the principles of the 5 elements found in nature, via their "artform" shodo and Ikebana, or what is known within Japan as "The Way".
