My mother and father were part of a timeless quest for sustainable gardening and farming, so it was with delight that I received a notice of this book about "Shamanic gardening".

For my parents, gardening was both a practical and spiritual exercise -- it gave them peace and beauty in the turmoils of life. And it provided them and their children with wholesome, healthy food. How much more "shamanic" can you get?


No other gardening book better illustrates the vast cultural history and modern practicality sustainability and permaculture.

SHAMANIC GARDENING contains a history of sustainable gardening, including techniques used by Cleopatra, the Japanese, the Pueblo Indians, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and many others.

Learn to design an edible, elegant, sustainable landscape, grow healing herbs, extract flower essences, grow aphrodisiacs, and plant for nutrition and beauty.

Includes shamanic principles to garden with more awareness and effectiveness, using your inner senses, working with earth energies, color, flower essences, and more.

The Author, Melinda Joy Miller is the founder of the Shambhalla Institute

Melinda Joy designed the Shamanic Gardening system as a natural evolution to her diverse background, which includes her experience as a cultural anthropologist, medicine woman, sensorimotor-integrative therapist, metaphysical healer, and nationally known feng shui master, with over thirty years’ experience in permaculture, sustainability, and herbology.
