Gardening or The Inner Temple

Gardening or The Inner Temple

By Dr. Dorit Kedar


Each species – flowers, bushes, trees – has its own growth conditions

Earth and pots

Shaded, direct, or half lighting

Big, high, small, medium, flat sized pots

Thin, thick textures


Placement in vicinity of similar species

Manuel irrigation to suite each plant

Checking if bigger pots are needed

Counter-acting mealy bugs or aphids

Adding soil and fertilizers

Removing weeds, dead leafs and branches and even plants

Replacing with fresh species

Gardening as enjoyment, meditation, diligence, effectiveness,

As a natural trigger of alertness, observation, immediate care, and synchronicity

Routine as an attainable celebration



About Dr. Dorit Kedar

Forced to continuously change nations, cultures and schooling - I had to develop a wider sense of communication, a way of thinking-feeling-behaving which stresses the common denominators. The need to adapt new landscapes and land-souls has taught instinctive means to overcome separatism, prejudices, dogmatic beliefs and suspicions. While looking for the common gathering denominators, I have also increased the ability of perception and individuation. Being constantly in estranged places has triggered psychological processes to turn the unfamiliar into familiar. As an art critic in the Israeli press, a curator, a writer - have always dealt with the otherness, the different and the infinite variety of the Existent. My Book of Peace is the result.
