Description

This mixed-method pilot study explores the relationship between participation in Ikebana and cortisol levels, a self-rated anxiety measure, and a semi-structured interview. There were 32 participants in the Ikebana intervention, anxiety self- rated measure, and phenomenological interview; 7 participants in the salivary cortisol measurement. Results showed statistical significance (p<.000) in lowering anxiety levels, salivary cortisol levels, approached, but did not show statistical significance, probably because of the low N. Semi-structured interviews produced themes related to doing, being, and becoming.
