About this title


The Art of Spiritual Rock Gardening is an inspiring and practical guide for both garden lovers and spiritual seekers. The uses of the rock garden as a site of beauty, reflection and spiritual nourishment are many. Building a quiet corner of stones and plants slowly and meditatively over time is its true meaning. Process over product, journey over destination, forever a work in progress -- rock is the best metaphor we have of everlastingness.

From choosing the right rocks and plants to weeding and night gardening, this book shows how to start or maintain a rock garden, whether one has access to actes of land in the country or a window shelf in the city. At the same time it describes the sacred meaning of stones and rocks in many of the world's cultures and spiritual traditions, including Stonehenge and Ayers Rock, the Western Wall in Jerusalem and the Ka'ba in Mecca, Japan's Zen gardens, Europe's cathedrals, America's temples and Egypt's pyramids. Both practical and inspirational, it will appeal to everyone who loves gardens, rocks and the transforming power of nature.
