The author explains permaculture as having three distinct aspects - ethics, principles and practices. They explain how these three things interact with each other and how these can be used to effect change both in your own life and on a global perspective. Indeed the authors' own personal dream bought tears to my eyes - so simple yet so accessible by anyone.
But as I mentioned earlier this is not just about the theories behind this mode of living, the authors have outlined a complete step by step process on how anyone can use these principles to create their own garden. It includes both practical and spiritual steps that all work together to achieve a positive footprint on this earth. If you follow this book and start small, believe me good things can grow.
Final thought: as far as I understand, Permaculture is a way of living, not necessarily an exclusive and dogmatic spiritual tradition. I think this is compatible with any spiritual tradition you might identify yourself with. If you are at all interested in getting peace of mind, I highly recommend this book. This is a very short and easy read, but the effect of the words on you will be profound.
Yes, Folks, 'we' CAN do many things, simple ones, by how we think and act. I find myself employing her concepts in my daily life. It's actually EASY. 'Doesn't 'cost' you anything, other than a few thoughts--it's changed my Perspective, and perspective is where the growing, healing action is. I finished the book thinking: "Wow. I really CAN help and be a positive influence in this world, right where I live and right now!" 'Tending the Soul's Garden...' puts a smile on my face that was not there before I read it.
As a writer by profession, I give Denise Rushing 5 Stars for being able to 'catch the concept' and getting it into book form so that thousands of people CAN 'start gardening', and reap the guaranteed Harvest.
As she writes herself, "Like a garden soil that is lacking in specific nutrients, it is important that we reclaim and restore all available wisdom. We must seek balance in order to cultivate a new abundance in our lives. To engage in the Great Work of restoring and renewing our world, we must start with the soil of our own spirit." (130-131)
I highly recommend this book if you are a person who eats and breathes and lives on Earth!
