    Creating Sacred Space means more to us today than every before. I feel that this suthor has really offered us bold new perspectives along with numerous alternatives for coming to balance in these trying times. This book is a valuable, in-depth gardening guide with far more sensitivities than are usual!
    1. I find the resource guide in the back most valuable.
    2. The herbal lexicon that is the central third of the book is amazingly detailed; here is the info I need to propagate native herbs & wildflowers.
    3. Research on the medicine wheels as ancient landscape features is the best I’ve yet encountered, & offered with great respect & reverence for sacred space.
    4. Part III in this book is filled with imaginative new ideas, recipes, & suggestions for gifts & projects to make from one’s gardening success.
    What a fine book!
    The most unique book on this subject, likely to make other gardening books out dated…

    Based primarily on Amerindian healing and spiritual practices, The Medicine Wheel Garden details using a circular garden design as a personal, sacred, reflective space for pleasure, renewal, and as a home for wildlife. While much of the book is given over to explanations of symbolism and ceremonies including the use of spiritual and ceremonial items in the garden and details for performing seasonal healing rituals, chapters are included on choosing a garden site, style and plants. 50 herbs are profiled with short sections on history, modern and traditional uses, cautions to use, growing tips, and a sketch. Additional chapters provide culinary recipes and craft ideas as well as many recipes for beauty aids such as skin scrubs, shampoos, lotions, and soaking teas. While mainly a guide to creating a sacred space, gardening information is sound and conservative and includes the importance of compost and mulch as well as the importance of selecting the right plant for the right site. The Medicine Wheel Garden takes the rejuvenating and healing properties of gardening a step beyond.

    Very thorough and informative. Lists many plants, uses of the plants, terrain differences – in consideration with reference to locating and designing your garden – I thoroughly enjoyed this book – and – like most other selfhelp books – do not have to buy more titles to get the full picture.
