Cultivating Sacred Space: Gardening for the Soul by Elizabeth Murray (1997)



Hardcover with DJ in Very Good (VG) condition. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to a local library.

In Cultivating Sacred Space: Gardening for the Soul, author, photographer, and professional gardener Elizabeth Murray encourages us to transform our own private gardens into places that satisfy our need for the sacred, for play, for meditation, and for connecting with the earth.Included are a comprehensive exploration of useful archetypes and symbols; photographs and text about twelve sacred spaces, from the Moss Temple in Kyoto, Japan, to private gardens in Europe and America; and a chapter encouraging us to use our gardens for celebrations and ritual, exemplified by the story and pictures of Murray's own wedding garden -- which eventually came to be used as a memorial garden.

Elizabeth Murray's intimate style of writing and inviting photographs inspire us to become aware of the connection between the growth of our innermost selves and the flourishing of our sacred gardens.
