Sinossi

Over the years through the contemplative practice of daily early morning gardening, internationally popular gardening blogger Kathryn Hall has garnered 52 succinct and powerful metaphors or life lessons. She then illustrates each with timeless heartwarming stories from her own life, sure to capture the reader's imagination.

Plant Whatever Brings You Joy: Blessed Wisdom from the Garden is built upon such life lessons as:

*Clean up after a storm.
*Feel not obliged to make good use of every ripe fruit on the vine.
*Fiercely guard the seedlings.
*Judge not the flower by its bud.
*Resist the temptation to plant more than you can care for.
*Gently guide the tender vine else it become wild, tangled and impossible.
*Move gently among bees.

Early praise for Plant Whatever Brings You Joy:

"Plant Whatever Brings You Joy is an invaluable resource for understanding 'the garden' as a source of healing, growth, solace, joy, wisdom and understanding. This is a spiritually uplifting and wise book!" --Angeles Arrien, Ph.D., Cultural Anthropologist, author of The Four Fold Way and The Second Half of Life

"...as luscious as a peony in full bloom. Thank you for walking me in the garden of your heart." --Dawna Markova, Ph.D., author of I Will Not Die an Unlived Life and co-author of Random Acts of Kindness

"I loved it! It is ostensibly a book about Kathryn's life...her life in different countries and in different parts of America, her beloved daughter and her many gardens--yet it is so much more than this and touches the heart (my heart anyway) because of it." --The Nutty Gnome, blog, UK

"Simple and profound, it will help awaken your own graceful flowering!" --Brooke Medicine Eagle, author of Buffalo Woman Comes Singing and The Last Ghost Dance

"It is a testament to the skillful writing style, seemingly so easy and natural, and life affirming lessons to be considered that your readers will make this book their own; it is just that kind of book: a book to treasure." --Philip Bewley, Philip's Garden Blog

4.0 su 5 stelle A meaty read! 12 dicembre 2013
Di Allyson Szabo - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
While this book is easy to read, with personal stories and anecdotes, it takes a long time to digest. Each of the 52 chapters contains a short story and a bit of insight from the author's life, paired with garden practices. It is the type of book which lends itself to bathtub reading and late night sifting for gems of wisdom.

An example that truly touched me was in Chapter 39: Test and amend your soil. Ms. Hall says, "Yet how aware are we of our core beliefs and the very thoughts we feed ourselves on a daily basis that are determining the culture in which we live and grow?" This is one of those statements which is so true that it almost slaps you in the face. Our culture, our religion, our faith communities, our families all help amend the soil in which our soul grows. Ms. Hall asks us to take the time to evaluate just what we're putting into that metaphorical soil, and to use that knowledge to help determine whether we need to add more to it or if we're over-doing it.

Plant Whatever Brings You Joy is a meaty book, one that asks you to evaluate yourself over and over again. In a later chapter, Trim unwieldy branches, the reader is asked to examine her life and wonder where all the time and energy goes. Ms. Hall points out that the myriad of undone things each day saps our energy and steals our time from us. By putting ourselves in order, like trimming the unneeded branches from a sprawling tree or grape arbor, we make more time. There is less confusion, more understanding of where our energies need to be flowing. There are less dead ends, so to speak.

Each life lesson is matched to a gardening metaphor which helps highlight the important parts and illustrate what needs to be done. Whether she's raving over her gardeners and the lessons she learned from them, or laughing with you about the number of birds she ended up owning at one point in her life, Ms. Hall brings a comfortable humor to the situation. When she likens problems to weeds or blessings to fruits from the cultivated portions of the garden, she gives the reader something to grasp, to hold onto while trying to understand some very deep issues.

Ms. Hall's book is truly fascinating. It keeps the reader engaged, and leaves you with a string of deep thoughts to mull over late at night. Being able to turn to the garden for spiritual ideas is a great thing, and Kathryn Hall does an excellent job in drawing it out clearly for everyone. I'm so glad I was able to purchase it, read it, and enjoy it. As a minister, I fully intend to use some of the wisdom gems within for sermon seeds!

5.0 su 5 stelle it was a great guide for that 13 novembre 2015

What an elegantly-crafted read this is! I thought it was going to help me get into gardening, as I finally have the space to start some planting. Yes, it was a great guide for that. But to my surprise, this book is a beautiful source of wisdom for life, itself. Each chapter is a corresponding metaphor to achieve a nurturing balance in one’s own inner world; lovingly tending to the soul as one would care for the garden. Very cool...

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU Kathryn Hall for creating such a wonderful book. I found myself not reading it through quickly as I do most books. Instead I lingered on every word, after every chapter and considered how I could apply these lessons to my life, my world and not just my gardening experience. A delightful surprise in how the content actually made me think, pause and reflect. I cannot think of anything else to say except EVERYONE NEEDS TO READ THIS BOOK and take advantage of the gifts that are revealed throughout. Kathry Hall....I am waiting for your next book....................patiently, of course..............

I purchased this for my mom, Doreen, and the following is her review:
Plant whatever brings you joy was one of the best gifts that I received from my daughter. It was the best book that I read in 2013. Ms. Hall's writing and story telling is so peaceful and enjoyable to read. I did not want the book to end, but it is the kind of book you will read again and again. I pick it up and read a chapter from time to time and have it right on my nightstand. I truly love it and would highly recommend it to anyone to enjoy. Peace
