Through an act of art one enters into the mystery of soul. As art is created, soul is birthed in the world. Letting the Lotus Bloom explores flower arranging in relationship to this mystery, and finds insights that are applicable to all. They are the bones of a truly creative, artful life. I never gave flowers a second thought, other than buying them every now and then and sometimes remembering to put an aspirin in the water. Then I read Letting the Lotus Bloom. I found it to be both strong and delicate, like the flowers it celebrates. I loved the voice and the stories. And, not surprisingly, it left me with a new respect for flowers and the people who work with them. What did surprise me, however, was how powerfully Letting the Lotus Bloom connected me with soul in general, my soul in particular, and the beauty of soul’s unfolding. I will read this book more than once, and I will give it to friends, with and without an accompanying bouquet. —Victoria Moran, author of Creating a Charmed Life This book is a gift to all of us on a creative path! It reminds us that successes, setbacks, joy and tears are all a part of the process, but that, like the lotus, we will always bloom. It is how we are designed. —Ardith Beveridge, AAF, AIFD, PFCI, CAFA, MSF, Founder and Director of the Koehler and Dramm’s Institute of Floristy
