Green thumbs can flip through this beautiful book that takes gardening and growth to a spiritual level. Unlike other books with only information on how to garden, the Tao of Gardening inspires readers. You can read this book for pleasure, meditation, or horticultural therapy purposes. Adapted from the classic Tao Te Ching by the ancient Chinese sage Lao Tzu, this book translates gardening into a period of personal growth.
Author Pamela Metz writes 81 simple and harmonious verses that show the spirituality in gardening and growth. The Tao of Gardening parallels nature, the universe, cycles of life, and water. The adaptation touches upon connections, balance, interrelationships, and letting go. Taoism, an ancient Chinese philosophy, espouses humble acceptance and being close to the land and its offerings.
The Tao of Gardening follows a journey through the facets of growth with gentle words. The Tao presents sensual harmony rather than acute descriptions or concepts. Applying Taoism to gardening, whether nurturing nature or your inner spirit, will focus you on both inner and outer spiritual aspects of the entire process. Gardeners plant, water, grow and reap in the beauty or harvest of what they sow. This book embraces gardening and looks at it from a holistic view.
