The Book of The Garden by Richard Wehrman

A narrative poetic journey into the heart of reality, The Book of The Garden opens the possibility that the Imagination can be a vehicle to a reality neither exclusively internal nor completely external, but situated between them both-an intimate World that comes into being as we embrace and believe in its possibility, not as an imaginative fiction, but as an ontological actuality. A world where our deepest longings find their resolution through their own creative arising-where our True Nature magically manifests "universe upon universe". A poetic vision both alchemical and personally revealing, The Book of The Garden speaks to the deepest heart in each individual, opening the spiritual and transcendent through the simplest of presences, in what becomes the Garden we have all, since our childhood, longed to re-enter. And where we find that through the heart of love, and our own Creative Imagination, we can.
