The Medici Creating Sacred Space for Healing, Celebration, and Tranquillity
Here is a inspiring book to give to someone interested in healing arts and garden herbs. It give ideas for creating garden space that uses Native American mystical symbolism to describe how to put together a garden that heals body and soul. The author clearly explains the basic layout of a "medicine wheel" garden. Also covered are traditional plants and why certain colored plants belong in the different quadrants of the circle. He also offers an illustrated encyclopedia of 50 healing herbs, as well as recipes that incorporate those herbs. The author observed that his happiest and healthiest patients had green thumbs. He introduces his concept of the "soul garden" and he draws from literature and scientific studies, among other sources, to back up his claim that, like Voltaire's Candide, people would be happier and less stressed out if they would just sit back and watch their gardens grow.
