Training program for advanced Kado practitioners by personal invitation only. Taught in English.
Kado Instructor Training
Kadö is a creative and meditative art, a dance between nature, space, and perception. The vibrant and daring beauty of flowers wakes up the environment and compels us to see what is really before us.
“Kadö” is a Chinese word meaning “The Way of Flowers”. This practice began in China more than 2,300 years ago. When it was introduced and assimilated to Japan, the Japanese word “Ikebana” was born, meaning “living or natural flowers”.
Using classical Ikebana forms, Kadö teaches us to see clearly the wisdom in nature, in ourselves and in others. The ultimate goal of the Kadö is not to make pleasant flower arrangements, but to cultivate appreciation of every moment, work with obstacles, and develop respect for oneself, for others and for all life forms.
