BDK America Classes through June 2018

We're happy to share times and dates for local classes into the start of Summer.  See the May/June schedule below. And  note that Ikebana now has posted their full 2018 schedule here.

BDK America is grateful to be able to host cultural and spiritual programs at its facilities in Moraga and Berkeley, California. In this way we help broaden the appreciation of the many forms of Buddhist spirituality and Japanese art and culture, thanks to our talented instructors.  

Contact the Instructor to Start a Class

Before you show up for a class we ask that you first contact the instructor, as space is limited.
