Movement Play
Bring your child-like nature out to play! Be the seed; planted in your garden, bursting through into the light, growing in all directions, feeling your heartbeat, developing buds, opening to full blossom, and interacting with your companion plants and other nature creatures. A flower uses the energy of ALL its parts to bloom!

Express your growth sequence through Movement Play by:

  • dancing to music
  • going outside for shadow play when the sun is just right in the sky, early morning or early evening, making for a nice LONG shadow
  • moving your body in front of a full-length mirror, enjoying the growth process through your reflection
  • asking a friend or family member to take a video of you moving through your growth sequence

In the world of landscaping, plants are often if not always chosen for their aesthetic value. For most gardeners, it is the beauty of the flower that matters, rather than the biological processes it represents. However, flowers don’t exist primarily for our enjoyment, but rather for the plants they adorn. Their beauty is not for us, but for the reproduction of their own species. In this context, the perfect flower is, indeed, the most perfect flower, whether or not it is the most aesthetically beautiful.
