Koitsu, "Full Moon at Akashi Beach" Ukiyo-e Woodblock Print
The spiritual aspect of ikebana (Japanese flower arranging) is considered very important to its practitioners. Silence is a must during practices of ikebana. It is a time to appreciate things in nature that people often overlook because of their busy lives. One becomes more patient and tolerant of differences, not only in nature, but also in general. Ikebana can inspire one to identify with beauty in all art forms. This is also the time when one feels closeness to nature which provides relaxation for the mind, body, and soul.
