Growing Consciousness

The Gardener's Guide to Seeding the Soul (Gardening and Mindfulness, Natural Healing, Garden & Therapy)

Growing Consciousness explores the links between spirituality and the garden with a focus on Ayurvedic techniques and meditation. Through simple daily meditation practices coupled with gardening, this book will show how one can marry spiritual growth and plant-based consumption to cultivate a more conscious and satisfying existence.

This book forges an accessible path to self-discovery and truth; one that can apply to a small herb garden on the windowsill just as well as it would to a Buddhist Zen garden. Growing Consciousness will outline simple practices and explorations into the spiritual qualities of gardening and how one can marry spiritual growth and plant-based consumption to cultivate a more conscious and satisfying existence.
