The Tao of Now - Small Show Garden Bloom 2016


“The Tao of Now’ is a garden built upon the foundations of mindfulness and therapeutic horticulture. In a very aesthetic format, it offers a contemplative or respite space that can be easily copied and transferred to an urban community garden, hospice, hospital, health centre, school, college, or even a workspace courtyard.

We all need a little time out now and then, and the latest research is proving that sitting in a well-designed garden dramatically reduces stress. The garden is premised upon green healing – the use of predominantly green foliage plants to cause a relaxation effect upon the user of the space. The prime structure of the garden is a sculptural seating platform in the form of a Gyan Mudra – the yogic and meditational hand gesture that represents unity between the self and divine consciousness and which is also the symbol of wisdom.


In a hectic world, and a busy 10th anniversary Bloom extravaganza, ‘The Tao of Now’ is a space to find some peace and well-being.
