Karesansui Raking Demonstration

Karesansui or dry landscape garden is founded on Zen ideology using carefully composed rock arrangements and gravel or sand.  A karesansui is carefully raked to represent characteristics of water such as currents and waves while boulder arrangements may be interpreted as islands.  Learn about our Late Rock Garden and observe how the raking can be a practice in mindfulness and meditation.
