Very nice book. Short chapters with meaningful content for your own awareness, and… for your garden. Cultivating a garden means establishing an environment that is sending you messages all the time. Can I get them? Let´s explore it and we will see how complex the garden is. Particularly if the garden includes us as one of its components. We are in the garden and the garden is within us.

This is a wonderful collection of short meditations and thoughtful insights into keeping the earth green and healthy through gardening. Easy to read it is also beautifully illustrated. Perfect book for anyone who loves getting their hands into the soil and bringing forth a plant or flower.

Oh, how I wanted to like this book! I loved the cover and I loved the premise -- meditations for gardeners about life gleaned through digging in the dirt and growing, which is what all gardeners love to do.

I was able to preview the book through NetGalley, whose description read: "Embracing gardening as a spiritually enriching activity lovingly reconnects us to nature everyday—this beautifully illustrated little book reminds us how to do it. Rooting each blossoming thought in deep ecology and con

I started reading this right before gardening this season. It always filled my cup and made me realize why I’ve connected with gardening in the first place. I read a chapter daily and then things got busy and just now returned to it which was perfect timing because the last chapters are about the garden in the winter. Although it sounded repetitive at times, the lessons I found here were uplifting. I see myself reading this annually as a reminder of the power of nature.

Love this little book. Being a gardener it helps me connect to why I love gardening and started my garden services business. Kaitiaki (taking care) of nature.

I enjoyed the illustrations in this one more so than the text, which I find sort of states in that kind of New Age-y way what is fairly obvious to most gardeners about the benefits and pleasure of the gardening. That said, it might make a nice little gift book for the right gardener. Or help sustain am imaginative reader-gardener through the winter months.

I read a copy of #MindfulToughtsforGardeners from the publisher via #NetGalley.

Gardening as a form of meditation and spirituality. Deep in its own special way, this book has not to be read only by gardeners, but as I am not a gardener myself, I think I missed something.

Il giardinaggio come forma di meditazione e di spiritualitá. Profondo in un suo modo speciale, questo libro non deve essere letto per forza ed unicamente da giardinieri, ma siccome io non lo sono, ho avuto la netta sensazione di perdermi qualcosa.

THANKS TO NETGALLEY FOR THE PREVIEW!

My ecospiritual books grew out of a winding path, from my childhood in the Pacific Northwest and integral studies at Fairhaven College, on to massage school and Reiki training, and then graduate studies in Wisdom Traditions, somatic psychology, education, and creative writing. My dream is that all people would find their soul work, which heals people and our fellow earthlings on many levels. Visit ...more
