For our November 15th Zoom meeting, we will show the Ikenobo Demonstration video titled “Summer to Fall – Fall to Winter” by Ikenobo Headmaster Designate Senko Ikenobo. Senko Ikenobo's demonstrations was performed at the 18th North & Central American Region Conference in Dallas in 2019.
Senko Ikenobo is Headmaster Designate of Ikenobo Ikebana School, a family whose first generation is traced back to Ono no Imoko and whose philosophy of ikebana was established in the Muromoachi period (14th - 16th century).
She serves as Vice Head Priest of Shiunzan Chohoji (Rokkakudo) temple in Kyoto, Honorary Consul of Iceland and Guest Professor of Gakushuin Women’s College and Ritsumeikan University. Senko Ikenobo’s varied activities focus on life as emphasized through Ikenobo Ikebana.
From 2012, in order to remember the sacrifice and recover from all the disasters, offering sincere prayers for the happiness and world peace, Senko Ikenobo started to take a pilgrimage to 33 temples in West Japan and performed flower offering ceremonies. She completed the pilgrimage in May 2016.
In 2013, she visited Boston and New York, on the occasion of the Ikenobo Ikebana 550th Year, conducting an ikebana workshop at Harvard University and performed a floral offering ceremony at United Nations Headquarters.
