Mindfulness in the Garden offers simple mindfulness verses (gathas) composed to connect the mind and body and to bring the reader/gardener’s awareness to the details of the present moment as they work in the garden. These gathas are signposts leading to nature, to the present, and ultimately to one’s self through the love and understanding they evoke. The gathas offered with each gardening activity serves to water the seeds of mindfulness within us, and softening and preparing the ground for our ability to be present. Mindfulness in the Garden values weeds as important messengers seeking to bring into close communion our spiritual nature with that of the environment. It likens spiritual practice to cultivating a garden and inspires each person to accept themselves and start where they are, weeds and all. Through the practice of mindful gardening, we invite not only the thriving of the natural world but also the flowering and beauty of the pure land of our true self to emerge. Features black and white botanical illustrations throughout. Introduction by Thich Nhat Hanh, author of Present Moment Wonderful Moment Foreword by Wendy Johnson,author of Gardening at the Dragon's Gate

A reluctant mage, a deluded dragon and a very scary fairie. Bill Strike is abducted on the eve of his wedding by an elf and her band of carrier lizards and finds himself transported to the Beyond where it seems all is not well. The elfs blame him for an invasion of walking wooden robots and he's faced with a stark choice - destroy the machines or never see his world, and his fiance, again. In the meantime, Chortley Fitzmichael's father is murdered and he's the chief suspect. To make matters worse, his homicidal half-sister is now countess and is scouring the country for him. Add to this three witches, a bloody annoyed potential bride and a mysterious stranger who shares a past with Mother Hemlock and you have a recipe for chaos. And laughs. If you enjoy the Discworld novels of Terry Pratchett, you'll love this fast paced tale of elfs, dragons, dwarfs and faeries. The last book in the trilogy, Denizens and Dragons promises laughs, thrills and a happy ending.
