Help about Ikebana and Japanese culture


25 Nov 2008

I'm from England and currently doing my BA Honours Degree in Floristry Art and Design. I have just started out doing my dissertation and chosen Ikebana for my subject. I have said that the Japanese have a great love of nature but i have also got to explain this fact and say why the japanese love nature so much. One of my main aims in my dissertation is to say Ikebana is good for the mind, like a relaxtion, and a form of well-being. I need information to back this up and does anyone else believe that it is good for well-being. I have found there is not much information out there. Does anyone on here know of any that could help me please? Also is Ikebana just about rules and discipline rather than free expression or can it be a bit of both. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I also would like to get in touch with any one that as attended an Ikebana school or have studied Ikebana. Any help would be greatly appreciated and will go a long way on helping me complete my disseration.
