Spirit Garden

A place to come for resources, support and inspiration for nurturing your contemplative life.

Drawing from the world’s wisdom traditions, Spirit Garden offers programs and materials that tend to your soul.

Anam Cara

In the Celtic tradition, there is a beautiful saying, Anam Cara, which  means ‘Soul Friend.’  At Spirit Garden, we seek to offer programs, resources, and reflections that befriend the soul.  Here is a little bit about what we offer:

Ritual & Ceremony

Across traditions, ritual and ceremony is used to connect to our inner life and honour our life transitions.  Ritual and Ceremony is a language of the soul and creates sacred space.  At Spirit Garden, we offer support for incorporating ritual and ceremony into your daily living and special moments, whether it is blessing a new home, a baby, a retirement, creating a wedding ceremony, or celebrating life.

Spiritual Practices

Spiritual practices can offer a foundation and framework that supports our daily living.  From walking in nature, to meditation, prayer and inspirational reading, spiritual practices nurture and enliven the soul.  At Spirit Garden, we incorporate contemplative practices into all our offerings and hope that they will support you in ways that sooth the soul, spark creativity and deepen gratitude, peace and presence.

Journaling can be a path of discovery, one that helps us listen to our soul.  In our shop, courses and blog posts you will find downloadable journals with questions and prompts for exploration.

Creative Expression

Aristotle once said that the soul never thinks without an image.  We express these images through music, poetry, pottery, art, photography, writing and more.  In our courses, we invite the creative expression of the soul.
