Although it's a bit of an investment, I reckon it would take many months to follow all the activities diligently and my aim was that it was still cheaper than an equivalent online course. I made a pdf, though the publishers keen to keep it paperback for now, partly as it's design is to write in it as you go / doubling up as a record of all your thoughts and findings. With the 25% discount by Chelsea Green hoping it makes it affordable. Thanks for having a good look, maybe one for the birthday / christmas list? xxx

Hi, Jasmine! This reminds me that I need to review your book, which I won here last time. What I find is that your book puts me into a meditative state...and I do a lot of thinking. I went into a kind of spiral, literally, on the design portion (where you talk about the different ways to lay things out), and I realized that I was already following an order that arose from me internally...kind of a spiraling figure-8 arrangement that's just grown as I've "sensed" into it. And, like a spiral, I find I'm working through your workbook in stages, at first deliberately NOT writing anything into it, then writing things down after I've thought out levels and levels. I think the way you've written the book, with the handwritten style, is very conducive to a creative introspection until one is ready to take up the pen and write things down. So thank you!

Fascinated to hear that Diane, and will really sit with that, and pass on perhaps to others using the process. Food for thought indeed.
Also, been doing some 'inner work proces' here myself, and the figure 8 came up for me as a way to keep centred and yet engage with the world from my own axis.
Thank you for feedback

Yes on the 8! That's exactly how I experience my garden walks. Very conducive to observance at many levels.
