The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing
picture
Features:-
This #1 New York Times best-selling guide to decluttering your home from Japanese cleaning consultant Marie Kondo takes readers step-by-step through her revolutionary KonMari Method for simplifying, organizing, and storing.

Despite constant efforts to declutter your home, do papers still accumulate like snowdrifts and clothes pile up like a tangled mess of noodles?

Japanese cleaning consultant Marie Kondo takes tidying to a whole new level, promising that if you properly simplify and organize your home once, you’ll never have to do it again. Most methods advocate a room-by-room or little-by-little approach, which doom you to pick away at your piles of stuff forever. The KonMari Method, with its revolutionary category-by-category system, leads to lasting results. In fact, none of Kondo’s clients have lapsed (and she still has a three-month waiting list). 

With detailed guidance for determining which items in your house “spark joy” (and which don’t), this international bestseller featuring Tokyo’s newest lifestyle phenomenon will help you clear your clutter and enjoy the unique magic of a tidy home—and the calm, motivated mindset it can inspire.

picture
Features:-
2014 Revised Edition Now Available! Is it true that being aware of the natural flow of energy and planting a garden in these sacred geometrical patterns can beneficially impact the fruits, vegetables, people and communities around it? When a Feng Shui practitioner, Cheryl Leigh Gama, combined her ability to “tune-in” to nature with her love for art, music, physics, geometry and organic gardening, she followed her heart and created a Sacred Geometry Garden. The outcome was phenomenal; she produced $600 worth of food monthly from a circular garden with an 11’ diameter. (That’s only 90 square feet!) Even before optimal organic soil amendments were added, this Superfood garden grew vibrantly and when the produce was Brix tested with a refractometer for nutrient density (on a scale of 1-10), the veggies scored from 4-10. The new book, Sacred Geometry Gardens: The Heart of Superfood Gardening, is a step by step manual for building a garden that is efficient, rich in nutrients, and is a fulfilling gardening experience. It takes you on a journey of self discovery and connectedness with our Earth. Cheryl Gama provides a hands-on/how-to presentation of practical, organic gardening methods that produce nutrient-dense “superfoods” at home on any size plot of land. It’s easy, simple and can be done with ordinary gardening tools and soil specific organic amendments. Whether you are an experienced organic gardener or a beginner, Sacred Geometry Gardens will give you the opportunity to easily build a beautiful garden with love and universal harmony. Anyone interested in home gardening, organic gardening, quantum / progressive physics, consciousness, unity, feng shui, chi, elemental enhancements, permaculture, sustainabiliity, thrivability, science and spirituality will love this full-color, 8.5 x 11 book! 144 pages, 201 photographs, 62 illustrations and 186 graphics.

Wind and Water: Your Personal Feng Shui Journey
picture
Features:-
Wind and Water presents Feng Shui in a simple, easy-to-read format, offering suggestions that can be implemented on a daily basis or per focus issues.


Using sound, practical suggestions and placing them in an easy-to-read day-by-day format, Wind and Water is a book for those who are new to Feng Shui and those who have had experience with the philosophy. The information can be accessed on a daily basis, reading the pages in sequence or it can be accessed randomly, opening to a page for that particular day.

Author Carole Hyder also offers the information based on focus points. By scanning the contents page, a particular issue (Letting Go, Creativity, Opportunity, Wealth, etc.) may be more relevant than others. All the pages in that section pertain to the specific issue. Additionally, the index organizes the material in Wind and Water according to physical rooms or situations (home office, cars, moving, clutter, etc.). The book can easily be read in any of these formats without compromising the integrity of the material.

What makes Wind and Water unique is that it not only provides information relevant to the Chinese art of placement, but also suggests a corresponding activity. Instead of reading about Feng Shui, the reader is provided an immediate experience of Feng Shui.

The Craft of Gardens: The Classic Chinese Text on Garden Design
picture
Features:-
With dozens of stunning photographs, this modern translation of a Classic text is a masterpiece of classical Chinese gardening.

Ji Cheng's great work on garden design, the Yuan Ye or Craft of Gardens, was originally published around 1631 and is the earliest manual of landscape gardening in the Chinese tradition. This is the first complete English translation of Ji Cheng's seminal work.

This Chinese gardening book is based on J Cheng's notes and experiences from his career as a garden designer, which he discusses at some length in his introduction> Since architecture is an integral part of the Chinese garden, much of the book is taken up with the design of different types of buildings and the integration of architecture with nature in the garden. Ji Cheng explains the religious and aesthetic principles underlying garden design and the appropriate emotional response to various effects. he then offers a down-to-earth series of instructions about the requirements of different types of sites, building layouts, architectural features, paving, the construction of artificial mountains, selection of rocks, and the use of natural scenery.

This delightful book provides not only insights into Chinese gardening but also a unique perspective on Chinese culture and society in the late Ming dynasty. Full notes by the translator explain obscure points and introduce relevant aspects of Chinese culture, while an introduction by Maggie Keswick sets the book firmly in its historical context. Illustrations include not only Ji Cheng's original diagrams but also historical paintings and contemporary photographs of a number of outstanding gardens in the part of East China where Ji Cheng lived and worked.
