More About This Title Gardening the Soul


Sister Stan was brought up on a farm in County Kerry, one of the most beautiful parts of Ireland. It was there that she learned to appreciate the earth, its stillness and its energy, its beauty and its bounty. In this powerful and evocative book, Sister Stan looks to the earth for inspiration throughout the year. Reflecting the garden's changing rhythms through the seasons, she offers us a daily thought to help face the challenges of modern life. In January, when there is silence in the garden, she looks at Solitude in our soul. In March, with emergence in the garden, she offers Hope. In August, when there is fullness and abundance everywhere, there is Blessing. And in October, the time of harvest, there is Harmony.


Sister Stan is the author of Moments of Stillness.
