Be More Bonsai

Be More Bonsai

Change your life with the mindful practice of growing bonsai trees


Rooted in ancient Eastern philosophies, every part of a bonsai tree is symbolic of our life and experiences. A bonsai shedding leaves is symbolic of letting go our material possessions; tending to the roots helps support and nourish the tree, much the same as our own beliefs and values, and many more aspects of bonsai offer serene life lessons to help us enrich and enjoy our lives.

The book will also delve into the philosophy and lessons to be learnt from tending to bonsai, contain a 'potted' history of the fascinating ancient culture and offer a comprehensive guide to cultivating bonsai.
