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 2012 Wall Calendar
features twelve exquisite images from garden photographer Charles Mann. Paired with contemplative text by Maggie Oster, 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.
