Cultivating the Inner Gardener

Create your own garden sanctuary

Tap Into The Transformational 
Power Of Gardening

I see lots of beautiful gardens that are produced by following the rules of proportion and landscape design, and selecting appropriate plants to execute the design.

But in certain gardens, you see and feel something more than just another pretty space. There’s an inexplicable, but tangible, x-factor in those gardens that resonates in people who visit. In such spaces, time passes quickly but no one wants to leave. 

There’s something about these gardens beyond what meets the eye. I call it The Transformational Power of Gardening. And it emanates both from the garden and the gardener. It comes about when a gardener has invested some whole part of himself, or herself, into the garden. That self may not even be known to the outside world. 

Cultivating the Inner Gardener coaching is all about making that process conscious.
What separates these gardeners from others is how they approach the gardening process, how they express their personalities and creativity through their gardens, how body/mind/spirit plays itself out in their gardening activities, and the pleasure they take in the journey. Join me now in discovering that mysterious x-factor and learn how you, too, can create this “something extra” into your own garden.
Which of these 9 stumbling blocks is stopping you 
from creating the garden of your dreams?
I work with people who are struggling with purpose, meaning, and life choice issues related to gardening; gardeners who want to make better choices that result in a personal space that provides a sanctuary from the world and speaks to their souls.
  • Have you been to other people’s gardens that have a magical quality, but can’t seem to create it in your own?
  • Do you feel like you’re going through the motions of gardening without getting much enjoyment?
  • Are you unsure about where or how to invest your time, energy, or money?
  • Do you feel that you’re doing all of the right things, but still don’t have a garden that is you?
  • Do you have trouble believing that your gardening efforts matter?
  • Are you concerned that you need to make some important changes but don’t know where to start?
  • Do you second-guess your choices and keep switching from one thing to another?
  • Are you frequently bored or anxious about your garden?
  • Are you fed up with fitness routines that are disconnected from your garden?

If you are experiencing any of these difficulties, here's how I can help!

Cultivating the Inner Gardener is not only about the garden, but about putting gardeners in a mental space that allows them to develop an intimate, holistic relationship with their environment.

Through a series of assignments and exercises you'll learn how to rediscover and focus on the things that really matter to you about your garden, restore meaning to your gardening efforts, and revitalize a cherished pastime.
