Connecting with nature is a popular and effective way to find some inner peace. And in the current issue of Project Calm you’ll discover – if you haven’t already – an extract from the new book Mindful Thoughts For Gardeners. In it, author, healer and gardener Clea Danaan offers a series of meditations on the power of gardening to soothe your soul.
The book presents gardening as a spiritually enriching activity, and offers practical ways to get down among the plants and soil, whether it’s in your own garden or perhaps helping a friend or neighbour on their allotment.
There are also fascinating insights into the cultural importance of gardening, and the beautiful illustrations remind us all of the importance of finding the time to tend the earth and appreciate its rewards.
The book’s publisher, Leaping Hare Press, has kindly given us five copies of the book to give away.
