& Other Fragrant Offerings

to Bring You Home to Yourself


Welcome to Rose Press

At the very heart of Rose Press is ~ you

We publish books to grow your inner garden.

We offer products to nourish your inner being.

Whether you are a devoted reader

or also a writer,

we seek to offer you an experience of sanctuary

that opens you to the beauty of your own true being.



And isn't that just what we want from a book?

We want to see who we are.

We want direct access to the materials (and im-materials)

with which to grow our inner garden well.

We want to live in a world where this is so;

where our incredibly beautiful fragrance reveals itself to us

and is released

into a transforming 

and welcoming


"If you asked for a few words of guidance and comfort,

I would quickly kneel by your side and offer a whole book as a gift."

~ Hafiz




"A book is like a garden carried in the pocket." ~ Old Proverb

We offer a select bouquet of books

designed for your deep healing, encouragement, and delight.

Our authors are not only experts in their respective fields (for example, psychology and creativity);

they also have made deep, personal healing journeys

to find and bring back

the living flower of true being 

to share with you

and bring back your own.  

The beautiful thing about these books

is that they transmit their wisdom and healing to you directly from the page. 

The authors don't use information and expertise

(though both qualities are present)

to erect distancing barriers.

They bring their deep hearts into the finding

and the telling.  

This opens a door for you.

And so it's your own heart that does the healing.

The treasure reveals itself.


                    When 100,000 rose petals are gathered in the dark of early morning, placed into retorts

                      filled with solvent, and heated over time until their oil rises as a liquid distillation,

                      then you have just one pound of that most prized (and expensive) of aromatics,

                      rose essence (rose absolute).

                      In the same way, Rose Press books are the distillation of their authors' essence,

                      refined over time and many revisions to bring you into contact with the gift

                      of something fragrant and indescribably beautiful within yourself.



We also have other fragrant offerings, including

Flower Essence Remedies for Writers

and more.
