Zen Lessons from the Garden on Contemplative Design
Martin Hakubai Mosko, Alxe Noden
Contemplative design and Zen teachings--a look at how we can transform our lives and our work through the lens of Japanese garden design.
Garden design is the way of discovering the garden. And the garden is a metaphor for life itself.
Part garden design philosophy and part Zen Buddhism, this book eloquently shows us how the principles of garden design are the same guidelines we can follow to design our life. Intentional living is the subject of design. When we approach our work in the garden, or in our life, through the practice of contemplative design, we can elevate the whole; we can unite the spiritual with the ordinary; we can join heaven and earth.
