Evening reading to help you better understand the purpose of your partnership with nature.

If you're lucky enough to have had a summer garden this year, we hope you are enjoying a plentiful fall harvest — whether flowers, food or knowledge. And in those late-summer evenings when you want to spend a portion of your precious time on something of value, we suggest you read a passage from Chapter 14 of your Perelandra Garden Workbook.

    The Perelandra Garden Workbook – Part 1

Beginning on page 229 in your Workbook, you will find a collection of sessions (discussions) that Machaelle had with nature during her years of working in the garden. Each session is just a page or a few pages. We think it helps to read one session at a time and let that sink in before you move on to the next one.

These are pages you will come back to again and again, each time enriching your understanding of nature, your garden and your partnership.

Reading the sessions are like an intimate "sit down" with a good friend, listening with appreciation as they let you into their inner world. You know those talks. They are special moments and afterwards, though you go back to day-to-day life, you feel closer to this friend, the relationship stronger and more real.

In Chapter 14, you will discover a wide range of topics: Soil Balancing, Geopathic Zones, Triangles, Insects and Communication, Food Production and Chemical Manipulation, Benefits of the Co-Creative Partnership, Earthworms and Robins . . . And a session you may have read before, Pan on Planet Earth.

As you take all of this in, you will find your work in your garden, your attitude and your response to "problems" all begin to change.

This season's garden will soon come to a close but your work with nature will continue, and a new year will begin. Your understanding of your place in the bigger picture will deepen and grow, and your partnership will expand.
