Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Mindfulness in the Garden offers simple mindfulness verses (gathas) composed to connect the mind and body and to bring the reader/gardeners awareness to the details of the present moment as they work in the garden. These gathas are signposts leading to nature, to the present, and ultimately to ones self through the love and understanding they evoke. The gathas offered with each gardening activity serves to water the seeds of mindfulness within us, and softening and preparing the ground for our ability to be present.

Mindfulness in the Garden values weeds as important messengers seeking to bring into close communion our spiritual nature with that of the environment. It likens spiritual practice to cultivating a garden and inspires each person to accept themselves and start where they are, weeds and all. Through the practice of mindful gardening, we invite not only the thriving of the natural world but also the flowering and beauty of the pure land of our true self to emerge.

Features black and white botanical illustrations throughout by Jason DeAntonis.

Introduction by Thich Nhat Hanh, author of Present Moment Wonderful Moment

Review:

"Zachiah Murray's deep rooted practice of Mindfulness in the Garden offers grounded encouragement and inspiration for our times." Wendy Johnson, author of Gardening at the Dragons Gate

Review:

"Grounded in the present moment, Zachiah Murray pays close attention to flowers and insects. Using the microscope of mindfulness, the garden becomes fresh and alive. Open the portal of this lovely book into a gentle garden of words that supports our mindfulness as we stroll among the flowers and trees around us." Cheryl Wilfong, author of The Meditative Gardener
