Launch into a new way of life filled with magic:

Advance Praise from Yo-Yo Ma, Thomas Moore and Carol Stocker for THE MAGIC LAND: Designing Your Own Enchanted Garden by Julie Moir Messervy, author of THE INWARD GARDEN and CONTEMPLATIVE GARDENS. "Every Page of this book is filled with magic. Julie Moir Messervy leads us on imaginative journeys, showing us how to create our own dream gardens. Julie and I collaborated for several years to turn a Bach Suite into a Music Garden. Now, with this book, Julie collaborates with readers, offering practical as well as inspirational advice on garden design. THE MAGIC LAND is a delight!" Yo-Yo Ma, Cellist "When you read The Magic Land you might launch into a new way of life. It treats the spaces and places of our lives as though they were connected to the geography of our dreams and the inner places where meaning is revealed. Julie Moir Messervy's observations are thoughtful, solid and practical as she teaches us charmingly how to make a garden with deep imagination. She invites us into a world that is seriously magical and offers a way out of the mechanical, literal, uninspiring spaces peculiar to our time which, I am convinced, are behind our depressions and anxieties. So, not only are her gardens enchanting; they are places of true healing and re-creation." Thomas Moore Author of The Art of the Soul, Care of the Soul ``The Magic Land'' will open doors for intuitive gardeners who not only want suggestions on how to stamp of their personalities upon the land, but how to shape a place that will reawaken the wonder they felt at discovering the world for the first time. Succinctly encapsulating a lexicon of design philosophies from feng shui to Egyptian symmetry, this book presents so many resonant garden concepts that it could double as either a text book for design classes or as a companion for inspired daydreaming. Julie Moir Messervy is a spirit guide for those who want to explore the translation of emotions into garden designs." Carol Stocker, The Boston Globe garden writer
