& Other Fragrant Offerings
to Bring You Home to Yourself
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
"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."
"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
