Winner of 7 book awards. A Nautilus Gold Medal winner. Just holding this book in your hands is a meditative experience.
In this wise, down-to-earth book, Master Gardener and mindfulness meditation teacher Cheryl Wilfong lovingly offers us a rich bouquet of the Buddhas teachings. Her gentle, friendly, and humorous tone creates a nurturing environment in which to practice mindfulness in our very own gardens.
Beginning meditators will find practical easy-to-follow suggestions. Lapsed meditators can refresh their practice. Seasoned meditators will appreciate the variety of wisdom practices that can be transplanted into daily life in the garden.
While sitting, walking, or bending over (a gardener's favorite position), become aware of the present moment. Notice feelings of happiness, pleasure, and calm as you take refuge from the busy world in the sanctuary of your garden. Use naturally-occurring contemplation to gain insight into the Dharma, the laws of nature. Use the tools of mindfulness and kindness toward yourself to discover how to cultivate your garden and meditation practice at the same time.
