A meditation garden comes in a number of forms, but its primary purpose is to provide a type of silent setting for mind, body and soul renewal. Personal preferences, lifestyle and individual needs help decide the exact function of this space.
Many people use these gardens to meditate, do yoga, write creatively, connect with nature or contemplate their place or purpose in life. The gardens are often considered to be a sanctuary where a person can depart from the world momentarily in order to reduce physical and emotional stress. These gardens can also be a spiritual space for individuals who want to practice certain rituals.
