healing the fall

December 9th, 2016


Empty-handed, the masters say, we attain the Way. This is the healing power of your peaceful presence, resisting nothing, adding nothing, thinking nothing. Sit quietly and enter the fullness of time, where the seasons advance in one viewing. Know that leaves bud and break. Flowers bloom and burst. Fruit softens and drops. Earth is our mother. She heals even the last fall.— Paradise in Plain Sight: Lessons from a Zen Garden

Please remember to purchase this book for holiday giving. It is perfect for making peace with mothers, fathers, daughters and sons, and conveying love to gardeners, caregivers, teachers, neighbors, friends and enemies. Thank you for supporting my life and practice.



  1. I bought 10…donating one to my library and giving all the rest to my loved ones for Christmas. Love you, Maezen. 🙂

  2. I bought your book, as I really enjoy your thoughtful newsletter. Not sure who is going to get it as a gift, perhaps just me for now!

  4. Dear, dear friends:
    If you’ve already bought and/or read the book and liked it, please post a review on Amazon. In the mysterious algorithms that power book recommendations and promotions on Amazon, it could help!
