The garden is a meditation practice…In the garden one can see the time coming for both fruition and for dying back. In the garden one is moving with rather than against the inhalations and exhalations of greater wild Nature.
Through this meditation we acknowledge that the Life/Death/Life cycle is a natural one. Both live-giving and death-dealing natures are waiting to be befriended, forever loved. In this process, we become like the cyclical wild. We have the ability to infuse energy and strengthen life, and to stand out of the way of what dies.
-Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Women Who Run With the Wolves
