The Art of Mindful Gardening explores the activity of gardening as an exercise for both body and mind. Ark Redwood, head gardener at one of Britain's most sacred gardens, guides the reader through the changing seasons. Drawing on years of gardening experience and Zen Buddhist practice, he acts as an expert to the secret places of the garden that can be discovered through mindful practice and spiritual contemplation. He demonstrates that mindfulness can bring an extra layer of consciousness to happenings we already consider magical: from the blossoming of a new flower to the flitting of a butterfly. This is the perfect gardener's gift and an essential for the potting shed library.
