In the midst of paralyzing grief, Arlene Bernstein took a walk to her small vegetable garden, tucked amidst acres of vineyard that she and her husband tended as the owners of Mount Veeder Winery. In that garden, she began a journey, quietly listening to what nature has to teach about renewal after loss. Growing Season is an invitation to slow down and notice what is right in front of us and discover the power of living mindfully and attentively, which reconnects us with our deepest sources of creativity and nourishment. It will speak to anyone in the midst of change seeking deeper understanding and a more joyous connection to life.

About the Author

Arlene Bernstein is a psychotherapist, photographer, and artist. Since the sale of Mount Veeder Winery after twenty years on the land that healed her, she divided her time between traveling the world with her husband Michael and practicing psychotherapy and facilitating women’s retreats based on the principles discovered in her garden. As an artist, she is inspired in her photographs and paintings to express the beauty and joy derived from her travels and her connection with all that grows. Her current land began as a blank canvas and is now filled with abundant nourishment and beauty from the vegetables, flowers, and olive trees that have made it a healing place for everyone who visits.
