Healing Garden in Lansing

I’m not usually a fan of hospitals and western medicine in general. But I have to give all kinds of props to Sparrow Hospital’s Healing Garden.

For almost four years I’ve heard of a meditation garden or maze at Sparrow. I even called about it once or twice and never seemed to get anyone on the phone who knew what I was talking about.

Well, I stumbled into the garden recently. I wish there had been something like this at the hospital  in Boston where my mother passed away. As I walked through the garden recently I thought of her and how she might have enjoyed sitting in it as well. There were some people in the garden, some were reading, some were journaling. One lady looked like she was taking a nap stretched on bench.


So, take a moment one day to go check out this oasis.  Sparrow Center for Health, Humanities and Wellbeing. The garden is on the first floor of the professional building near the garage entrance.

It’s a lovely sanctuary.
