Spiritual Influence on Japanese Architecture and Garden Designs

The traditional architecture of a country reflects its unique culture, and even spiritual attainment to a certain degree. As early as the Yayoi period (300 BC - 300 AD), the ancient Japanese constructed storage houses called Kura, as Buddhism grew in popularity, Kura evolved into large - scale Buddhist temples. One of the most unique features of Japanese architecture is Gassho - Zukuri, a roof resembling Buddhist praying hands pointed to the sky. Japanese architecture is strongly influenced by Zen ideology and there is great emphasis on integrating nature into building designs.

First Nations PowWow = Energy, Colour and Spirit!

And that’s how I was taught as a dancer: that when I’m making my own regalia, that I’m praying to the Creator that whatever I’m wearing will strengthen me while I’m dancing, strengthen me for the people I pray for. But most of all, strengthen myself for what my mother brought to me from her side of the family. Part of being a dancer is we really have to become humble.
