Reviews

"Gardening mindfully -- being present with our shovels, our tomatoes, and our gathas -- we sow the seeds of our authentic self into the soil of our daily life. Silently reciting our gathas, we invite the mind to drop into the heart, and the tangle of our minds are loosened." -- from the book

Grounded in the present moment, Zachiah Murray pays close attention to flowers and insects. Using the microscope of mindfulness, the garden becomes fresh and alive.Open the portal of this lovely book into a gentle garden of words that supports our mindfulness as we stroll among the flowers and trees around us.
