Strongly influenced by Shinto and Buddhism, the Japanese style of landscaping is particularly conducive to restoring an inner calm. Requiring an artful blend of imagination, skill and patience, the Japanese garden is an extension of the self. By adapting the harmonies of natural design to our own landscape, we heighten our understanding of the world around us and within us.
The Gardens of the Spirit 2006 wall calendar features an exquisite collection of Japanese gardens paired with Maggie Oster’s contemplative text, bringing the experience of Japanese gardening to all who long to create a peaceful oasis in the midst of a challenging world.

In the passage through the roji, or tea garden, we are invited to the mental and spiritual repose requisite to the tea gathering, leaving worldly cares in order to immerse ourselves in nature. Before entering the teahouse, hands and mouth are rinsed in an act of purification. As water gently drips from a bamboo pipe into an exquisitely carved stone bowl, we are reminded of the essence of water and its life-giving properties.
