Seeking Enchantment in the Garden

The best place to seek God is in a garden. You can dig for him there.
~ George Bernard Shaw
And we understand Chief Seattle's 1854 admonition:
Looking at the natural world in this way is nothing new. The idea of sanctified outdoor space was the genesis for the sacred groves of the Egyptians, Indians and Greeks. It birthed the medieval labyrinths and Native Americans’ 'medicine wheels'. And of course, ancient Chinese geomancy, ‘Feng Shui’, and Indian ‘Vaastu’, which see the earth and her directions as living, vibrant forces.
