It doesn’t take a lot of flowers to make an impact. Kit made this design using leucadendron, grevillea, rice flower and dianthus. Placed it in a little bowl from our local Japanese market and voila. Zen meditation flowers that will last for weeks.
How to meditate for non-meditators? Try “box-breathing” used by Navy SEALS to calm themselves and stare into a bowl of flowers. Give this a try:
Instead of closing your eyes, look at a flower arrangement.
Breath in through your nose for a count of 4.
Pause for 4.
Breath out through your nose for 4 counts.
Pause for 4 counts and repeat for 6 cycles.
While you are doing this, look at each flower in the design.
Look at the texture.
Look at the color.
Marvel at the way nature made each bloom.
