The Spiritual Wisdom of Trees: Insights from Our Elders explores the ancient spiritual and ecological wisdom that trees offer for living into deep connections with our human and non-human brothers and sisters, Earth and Divine Mystery. Each of the 6 sessions contains a beautifully-filmed 15-20 minute video and spiritual practice around a specific theme, including: • Cracking Open • Collaboration & Communion • Light & Dark • Bearing Witness • Hope & Healing • Gratitude & Reciprocity A final session, Going Forward, offers some guidance on how to integrate the wisdom of trees into your daily life and that of your community. Originally designed as a 6-week course, in this program format, you have the freedom to work through the course at your own pace. Course materials will be open to you for 12 weeks from the time you begin. We will also be offering a Guided Weekly version of this program in the fall which self-guided participants can join at a discount.
