The Spiritual Wisdom of Trees:
Insights from Our Elders

You've heard that the trees are speaking to each other, but what are they saying to us?

This provocative program examines the science and spirit of the forest to explore the ancient wisdom trees offer us on how we might live into our deep connections with each other and Earth.


Offered as a self-paced, 6-part series, each part consists of a beautifully filmed video session, spiritual practice and optional weekly online group discussion.


We explore together topics such as: 

  • What our tree elders know about how to survive and thrive

  • What trees tell us about the importance of living in community

  • Lessons from our elders on loss, resilience, renewal, and gratitude

  • How trees offer guidance on living in the light, dark and in-between times

“Trees are sanctuaries. Whoever knows how to speak to them, whoever knows how to listen to them,
can learn the truth.

They do not preach learning and precepts, they preach,
undeterred by particulars, the ancient law of life.” 

- Hermann Hesse
