Kado: The Path of Flowers

About us

Open to All

Japanese flower arranging, also called Kado or Ikebana, can be practiced as a contemplative art. Under the guidance of Barbara Craig, students learn to create flower arrangements and experience Kado as a creative and meditative dance with nature, space, and perception. Like meditation, Kado teaches us to really look at and work with what is before us.

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
