Paths to Wholeness: Fifty-Two Flower Mandalas by David J. Bookbinder isn’t a book to sit down and read from cover to cover.

There is much to think about just skimming the surface, but letting yourself sink to th ...more

This is a beautifully designed publication which I will treasure and re-read over time. I've also ordered some copies as gifts for special people in my life, any thoughtful person will appreciate it. I read a review copy of this book. The author has written 52 insightful essays (one for each week of the year if you so choose) about life concerns, many of which I have faced. Each essay is accompanied by glorious full-color flower mandala designs. I immediately felt a personal connection as if the ...more

I think that this is a truly beautiful book. The photography is amazing and the explanations of how the flowers relate to different aspects of our spirituality is enlightening and extremely original. I think this is an extremely helpful book to have around whether you are going through a difficult time or just need to be reminded that there is still beauty and happiness in the world. It offers great options for meditations with beautiful photos, quotes and essays. David Bookbinder has done a won ...more
