An exquisite daybook of spiritual lessons gleaned from the wisdom of nature to comfort and to inspire.
Sister Stanislaus Kennedy, or Stan as she is affectionately known, was lucky enough to be reared on a farm in Dingle, Co Kerry, one of the most beautiful parts of Ireland. It was there that she learnt to appreciate the earth, its stillness and its energy, its beauty and its bounty.
In this hugely powerful and evocative book Sister Stan looks to the earth that is so precious to our existence for inspiration throughout the year. Reflecting the garden's changing rhythms through the seasons, Gardening the Soul offers us a daily thought for our soul to keep us going as we face the daily challenges of life. These words are enriched by her judicious choice of references from thinkers of every creed and belief, emulating her inclusive approach to cultivating a healthy spirit.
All our moods are covered here. In January when there is silence in the garden she looks at Solitude in our souls. In March with emergence in the garden she offers Hope. In August when there is fullness in the garden there is Blessing and in October, the time of Harvest, there is Harmony.
