Synopsis
Strongly influenced by Shinto and Buddhism, the Japanese style of landscaping is particularly conducive to restoring an inner calm. Requiring an artful blend of imagination, skill and patience, the Japanese garden is an extension of the self. By adapting the harmonies of natural design to our own landscape, we heighten our understanding of the world around us and within us.

The Gardens of the Spirit 2007 wall calendar features the exquisite photographs of William Corey, one of the foremost Western artists to photograph Japanese gardens. Paired with Maggie Oster’s contemplative text, this collection of images brings the experience of Japanese gardening to all who long to create a peaceful oasis in the midst of a challenging world.
