BDK America Classes through July 2018

We're happy to share times and dates for local classes into the first full month of Summer. See the July schedule below

Thank you to our Instructors! 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.  

Special Note for Ikebana in July

Thie month Ikebana students may be involved in a Flower Show held July 21 at the Alameda Buddhist Temple in conjunction with their Obon Festival.

Current Ikebana students will already be in touch with Suiei Naito Sensei on participation in July. Potential students should feel free to contact Sensei (see following) to start a class after the show, and of course are encouraged to come enjoy the displays on July 21. (Note that Ikebana now has posted their full 2018 schedule here.)

CONTACT Instructors if You Wish to Start a Class

Before you show up for a class we ask that you first contact the instructor, as space is limited. The instructor can also discuss your level and suggest appropriate classes.
