"Soul of the Garden" is a special series produced by KLRU-TV Producer and Host Tom Spencer, whois also known for his web site www.soulofthegarden.com. In this series Spencer explores spirituality from a very personal perspective--the sense of wonder and solace so many of us feel when we encounter the beauty of the natural world--and viewers are introduced to ideas and individuals who have helped shape his own spiritual practice.
Among the religious and spiritual leaders who are featured in the series are: Patty Speier, Exective Director of The Seton Cove; Hazzan Neil Blumofe, cantor from Congregation Agudas Achim; Rev. Greg Rickel from St. James Episcopal Church; Professor; T. Flint Sparks, a Zen Buddhist Priest at the Austin Zen Center, and Phd. therapist; and Rev. Sid Hall from Trinity United Methodist Church.
The series also features some of the same quotes and poetry used by Spencer on his website www.soulofthegarden.com.
