Earth Pilgrim by Satish Kumar

Satish Kumar draws on his personal experience of making pilgrimages and also his understanding of the spiritual traditions of both East and West. If we want to tread the pilgrim’s path, we need to shed not only our unnecessary material possessions, but also our burdens of fear, anxiety, doubt and worry; in this way we can find spiritual renewal and embark on the great adventure into the unknown. Satish believes that at this stage of human history we now need a new kind of pilgrim.We need to realise that we are all related and connected, and through this connectivity we become pilgrims.



Gardening as a Sacred Art by Jeremy Naydler

This beautifully illustrated book presents a unique history of how people have worked with nature. For the ancients, gardens served as the home of spiritual and divine beings. Since the seventeenth century, however, nature has been seen more as a physical resource to be exploited. More recently gardening has become an art in its own right, enhancing nature’s inherent beauty. Drawing on garden examples ranging from ancient Egypt to Monet’s Giverny, Jeremy Naydler argues that gardening is best regarded as a sacred art, connecting human beings with nature and the earth in a truly spiritual way.
