Gardens Of The Spirit
Create Your Own Sacred Spaces
by Roni Jay
About The Book
Create a bit of heaven on earth by arranging and tending one of several beautiful gardens that nourish the soul as well as please the eyes. Erect a tranquil Japanese Zen garden, or master the art of the fruit- and rose-filled Islamic garden; an Italian Renaissance garden filled with statuary; and a sacred medieval Christian garden. Or set up your own healing garden complete with all the medicinal herbs. Gorgeous full-color photos capture the splendor of acclaimed gardens from all around the world. “‘On earth as in heaven,’ a line from the Lord’s Prayer, would fit in well here in relation to the spirit of this lovely…book. That the appeal of creating a space of temporal contemplation, or a portion of a long-lost paradise, should be so universal is not so unusual. Author Jay has covered, in swift order, the major influences in garden design, from medieval to Zen, with appropriate illustrations and photographs that steal one’s gaze. Here and there, shards of garden lore spice things up…With helpful and informative bits of information at the end of each chapter, this is a fine book for taking the first steps into one’s own garden of the spirit.” — Booklist. “Gardens of the Spirit is your guide to creating a personal paradise.” — St. Petersburg Times. “Of special interest are designs of each type of garden that you can create yourself…a fascinating and essential book.” — Newark Star-Ledger. 144 pages (all in color), 7 1/4 x 9.
