People have been wondering “where is the Garden of Eden?” since probably almost the beginning. I believe it may be much closer than we’ve imagined, and this little book adventure might give us some clues.
I’ve been wanting to read The Garden Within by Dr Anita Phillips for a little while (I guess I ran across it around when it first came out), and I have more fun and feel more purposeful and fulfilled when I share as I go. So I guess this is the first installment of the Tico+Tina Book Club, November 2023. We’ll see how this goes, if we do more books. God knows I have a whole bunch in my list!
Part of the reason I was drawn to this book is because I’ve been meditating on the story of creation and the Garden of Eden, particularly the two trees, since at least 2016. I was just going over a bunch of old journal entries about them, but I don’t think I’m ready to summarize all that yet. I’ve shared a bit here and there on Instagram, but there’s so much more.
For now, here is the intro, which I thought was chapter 1 at the time of reading, and some of my random reflections.
