In this exquisitely crafted and unique book, Donald Norfolk offers a fresh and illuminating approach to what has been a treasured part of human culture for more than nine thousand years: the garden. An acclaimed osteopath and international bestselling author of numerous health and self-help titles such as The Habits of Health and The Stress Factor, Norfolk developed his philosophy of the "soul garden" or "therapeutic garden," after observing that the healthiest, happiest and fittest of his patients were those who gardened. He believes that the garden has the power to imbue people with a higher level of mental, spiritual and physical well being and in this book, brimming with wisdom and insight, he utilizes concepts from the writings of historians, philosophers, landscape gardeners, psychologists, and medical researchers in order to show how, regardless of the space and time available, we can all discover the secrets of nature's healing, restorative powers.
Uniquely inspirational, The Soul Garden offers a vision of peace and harmony that leads us to understand how, when cultivating the soil, we can cultivate the soul.
