Description
In this lovely, meditative exploration of ikebana—the Japanese art of flower arranging—Joan Stamm shows us how her twin paths of Buddhist practice and artistic endeavor converge and indeed become thoroughly intertwined. In reflecting on the fading of a lovely bloom, the author understands impermanence; when she shows us the natural symmetry of a blossom, she underscores the balance inherent in Buddhism. Stamm's elegant prose weaves childhood memories with meditations on the symbolic importance of nature.

"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
