Reflections on Ikebana and Buddhism

“This is a gentle book, beautiful and meditative, that goes right to the heart of ikebana. It is a book that I will recommend to my students to take their understanding to a different plane.”—Diane Norman, author of Ikebana: A Fresh Look at Japanese Flower Arranging

“In this subtle arrangement of real life and ancient teachings, Joan Stamm shows how attention to a single flower reveals ageless wisdom. A loving tribute to a living art.”—Karen Maezen Miller, author of Momma Zen

“The author shapes stem, leaf, and blossom into a dharma of living beauty.”—Lin Jensen, author of Bad Dog! and Together Under One Roof
