Garden #4- "Introspectum"
The purpose of this garden is to encourage mindfulness, meditation and introspection. While there are many methods of meditation, the features of the booth provide different ways of bringing attention to the present moment through engaging the senses.
“Mindfulness Meditation” is not always linked to religion or spirituality, and is becoming more popular as a stress relief activity. It is simply about letting your attention flow freely without judgment, observing all thoughts, memories and senses that you experience during the moment.
Each corner of the booth includes features that can be used as an aid for mindfulness or focused attention meditation by engaging the senses.
The sight of vibrant flowers, the sound of running water, the texture of soft foliage, the smell of fragrant flowers and the taste of tea.
In one of the corners there is a feature to create the soothing sounds of water. By hearing sounds like water flowing, this draws the attention of the viewer to the feature and to the present moment. In the opposite corner there is a tea table surrounded by living walls, a reminder that the tea we drink was once a living plant and is now combined with water for the purpose of consumption. By sipping the warm tea, viewers can concentrate on the taste and feeling and therefore can encourage awareness of the present moment. Our seating areas are surrounded by visually striking shrubs like Japanese Quince, Lilac and Deutzia that are scented, encouraging relaxation with an element of aromatherapy.
By focusing the senses on one of the many features, you can achieve various types of awareness, which can lead to contemplation, meditation and eventually introspection.
In a world that’s constantly on the go, come visit the Introspectum garden for a place to relax, reflect and introspect.
