Ki種・Sho芽・Ten花・Ketsu実 ™ by Zen Flowers

Each Zen Flowers main course follows our unique philosophy which was derived from the Zen Buddhist path of enlightenment by Harumi Nishi (a graduate of both the Shitennoji Buddhist University in Japan and of Chelsea College, London University of Art in the UK). Our four stage Ki種・Sho芽・Ten花・Ketsu実 philosophy is unique to Zen Flowers and designed to shelter and guide you through your growth as a flower designer.


Every student starts their journey at the Ki種 stage. This is where seeds begin to sprout fresh new life. With Ki種 your heart will settle and find its centre. You will discover a new perspective in flower arrangement while rejoicing in the traditional.


Sho芽 is where the sprouts of Ki種 grow into strong shoots that soon begin to bud. The buds of Sho芽 represent pure inspiration. In Sho芽 you will create a foundation of beauty, a beauty loved by all with a place and value everywhere.


Ten花 is where the buds of Sho芽 blossom into flowers. In Ten花 the closed ovals spread to form circles of harmonious light and you will deepen your knowledge, building on your ability until your work finds its harmony.


Ketsu実 is where the flowers of Ten花 bear fruit. The fruit ripens with the support of its parent until it is strong enough to bear life of its own. After Ketsu実 you will understand the fusion of East and West and be united with the flower.
