Wind for Mind
Plants for the Mind, Body and Spirit
The flowers and grasses sway in the light and wind
The trees sing with the sounds of insects and birds
The waves sparkle and the sky rejoices
When we open our hearts
Plants will give us all the strength we need
We are pleased to present the exhibition “Wind for Mind: Plants for the Mind, Body and Spirit” at the Center for COSMIC WONDER.
“Wind for Mind” by Chinatsu Doi, is the blessing of the plants that connect us with nature. Awaji Island, where they are based, has the climate of the Seto Inland Sea with little rain and long days, which is ideal for growing herbs. The “Wind for Mind” field is located in a small mountainous area, surrounded by terraced rice paddies that have not been plowed for more than 10 years. There are no houses above the fields. The fields are ringed by trees that are the first to receive water from the mountains, and the plants are carefully nurtured through natural farming, listening carefully to the voices of the native plants. The gifts are created by the exchange between the plants and the ‘wind in our hearts’. When we intuitively receive these gifts, they provide us with the infinite power we need. Autumn herb salts with rosemary and fennel flowers, seasonal jams, organic ginger chai syrup, white sage bundles, rose geranium distilled water, and more.
We look forward to welcoming you all.

Fragrance Workshop by Wind for Mind
Plants are distilled in a small copper distiller to extract their fragrance. Using calendula flower soaked oil as a base, essential oils will be blended to make roll-ons. Let your quiet mind feel the fragrance released from a single drop and the pure presence in the plants.
