Heaven Is a Garden is about creating havens for the senses. Drawing on ancient traditions of “sacred space,” Jan Johnsen identifies the key natural elements of a garden that can give us feelings of renewal and inspiration. She shows us how we can introduce these calming, inspiring elements into our own gardens. The chapters explore “the power of place” and the surprising role that water, trees, shapes, color and sound play in transforming our state of mind. This richly illustrated guide invites us to bring more serenity into our lives.
