Space Within

Mindfulness Gardens

Space Within is a biophilic meditation space in which to escape the hectic outside world. A moon gate creates a portal into the ‘space within’, a central area which provides a symbolic place that offers and mirrors the healing, tranquil inner space of meditation. A mini forest provides tree canopy and references Shinrin Yoku – forest bathing, the therapy of being among trees to promote wellbeing.

A second portal at the back of the garden provides a view to flowing water and lush foliage, calming the senses and representing the energetic flow regained from a moment of serenity. Textural foliage provides a lush green element that travels up the walls and brings the positive biophilic aspect associated with the human need to connect to nature.
