Be More Bonsai

by Mark Akins

Life is really simple, but men insist on making it complicated - Confucius. Rooted in ancient Eastern philosophies, every part of a bonsai tree is symbolic of our life and experiences. The central tenets of the beautiful, meditative practice of cultivating bonsai teach us patience, focus, calmness, perspective, planning, mindfulness and many more traits that can help us in our busy, challenging everyday lives. A bonsai shedding leaves is symbolic of letting go our material possessions. Tending to the bonsai roots helps support and nourish the tree, much the same as our own beliefs and values. Being mindful of the 'food' we offer the bonsai, the size of the 'house' the tree lives in, the demands we place on that tree, and many more aspects of bonsai offer serene life lessons to help us enrich and enjoy our life experience. Delving into the philosophy and lessons to be learnt from tending to bonsai, the book will also contain a 'potted' history of the fascinating ancient culture and offer a comprehensive guide to cultivating your own bonsai. Through the pages of this unique book, drawing on thousands of years of wisdom, elegant philosophy and a simpler, ancient way of life, we can all learn to Be More Bonsai.
