The Design of this Contemplative Garden is inspired by the Anemone flower, which in Greek means:
The Daughter of the Wind
This contemplative garden offers a spiritual sensory experience, which begins on approach to the space.
In the trees at either entrance, handmade ceramic bowls hold burning botanical incense, creating an invisible scent gate and awakening the senses.
The contemplative garden opens up with two paths at either side, where signs invite visitors to walk barefoot through the garden.
Walking barefoot enables them to fully experience the garden, feel rooted, and connect with the space and the Present Moment
As the visitors walk on the lawn path, they are welcomed by a surprising sight: a rock fountain enveloped by a bed of thriving anemones.
As they continue further, a majestic shallow pool appears in full view.
Everyone can relax around the pool, where flat rocks allow you to sit and feel the space.
It is a grounding, contemplative experience, with the sound of the falling water, its touch on their feet and the soothing sight of the floating waterlilies.
At a certain time of the day, visitors are invited to participate in a short ritual in this contemplative garden. They choose a phrase describing a desire they want to manifest or a feeling they wish to leave in the past. Placing the desire in a magic ceramic cauldron containing a candle, they use the flame to burn the small piece of paper carrying their chosen phrase.
