The author of this book is a social worker as well as a practitioner of magic. This makes it practical and deeply connected to personal development, but as a text it’s also spiritual in its approach and aware of the esoteric realms. I think if any book is going to transform you it’s this one because it uses cognitive behavioural therapy techniques alongside affirmations and positive self-talk. It’s a book to be taken slowly – the author uses images connected to gardening to describe the process and gardens take time to grow. The author focuses on 9 areas including sexuality, self-love and career and gives you ways of cultivating your garden through journaling and meditation, and even if only half of it sticks, it will be an effective tool for self-development.
