Through writing exercises, inspirational quotes, and simple tutorials, this guided journal for gardeners helps users transform terms like “living in the moment,” “meditation,” and “mindfulness” from mere buzzwords into helpful everyday practices that will help them de-stress, reconnect, and handle whatever challenges the day brings.
Meditations for Gardeners provides the user with a series of simple journaling prompts designed to nurture a positive, calming framework to approach the day. Each of the writing prompts provides is grounded in nature and the garden, offering the user space to examine one’s garden and one’s self and to ponder some of the basic tenets of mindfulness. The journal can be completed at whatever pace the user prefers to work at (daily, weekly, etc) and features inspirational quotes sprinkled throughout, as well as introductory material on the practice of mindfulness and a list of resources for further reading.
