Gardening, like mindfulness, is a way of finding a sense of calm in an otherwise chaotic world, a simpler existence, even if it is only for a few minutes. Both forge a connection to the world around us, to nature and wildlife, which can bring pleasure and peace. In this beautifully illustrated guide to gardening for mindfulness, horticulturalist and mindfulness practitioner Holly Farrell provides a blueprint for a more contemplative way to garden, including projects, meditations and inspiration. Projects for the mindful gardener, including growing something from seed, planting a tree and creating a mandala, put the theory of mindfulness into practice, while plant lists and design ideas aim to enhance mindfulness in the garden through the senses. Beautifully packaged and easy to follow, this is the perfect book for keen gardeners, devotees of mindfulness, or simply those looking for calm in a busy and hectic world.
Besitzt Kunst die Möglichkeit, etwas für die Menschen zu tun? Kann ästhetische Erziehung etwas zur Persönlichkeitsentwicklung eines Schülers beitragen? Hat der ästhetische Prozess tatsächlich Einwirkungen auf die Identität eines Individuums? Kann Kunst also die Identitätsentwicklung und -entfaltung eines Menschen fördern? Ästhetische Erziehung ist wie kein anderer Lernbereich bezogen auf das Subjekt und die Autorin der vorliegenden Studie geht davon aus, dass Kunst einem hohen pädagogischen Anspruch gerecht werden kann. Aus diesem Grund untersucht sie die Wirkungsfaktoren der ästhetischen Erziehung anhand eines ausgewählten Themas in einer Grundschulklasse, indem sie die erlebnispädagogische Theorie praktisch umsetzt und die Ergebnisse bezüglich der genannten Fragestellungen analysiert und abschließend bewertet.
