Summary: In these pages, we travel the country with Debra Landwehr Engle as she visits 20 gardens and gardeners from California to Maine and Minnesota to Arkansas, showing us that grassroots campaigns actually can and do involve roots–and seeds and garden trowels. That any person with a steadfast resolve and an open patch of dirt can help bridge the gap between multinational refugees. That lush vegetation and running water and cool stones can help spark the fading memories of our elderly. And that our children can learn about where food comes from, labyrinths, wetlands systems, and healing from grief and loss just by digging in the earth with a caring adult hand to guide them.

Summary: “We need to encourage an understanding that inner peace comes from relying on human values like love, compassion, tolerance, and honesty, and that peace in the world relies on individuals finding inner peace.” –His Holiness, the Dalai Lama

These six words–please heal my fear-based thoughts–change lives. In this brief and inspiring book, based on Engle’s study of A Course in Miracles, she explains how to use the prayer and experience immediate benefits:

being less irritable, more patient
laughing more
feeling like you have more time, more energy
worrying less
making decisions more easily
saying no without guilt

One Facebook fan told Engle, “The most blessed aspect of this prayer is all the open space it creates for peace–I never knew how many fear-based thoughts were clogging up in me until… this prayer.”
