The Spiritual Wisdom of Trees:
Insights from Our Elders

6-week video & Zoom class
September 30 - November 10

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

In this 6-week interactive course weaving together forest ecology, spiritual insights and experiential practices, we will explore together: 

  • 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

Proceeds from Center programs help to expand our program offerings and outreach efforts so that we might bring spiritual wisdom in nature to a broad audience. As always, we don't want to preclude anyone from participating due to cost. If you need assistance, please email us at

  • Each Friday, receive a new video and spiritual practice on a specific theme to explore during the week.

This course was a deeply enriching experience. It is experience and heart-based, in that you are invited to open to the trees, to develop relationship with trees, to practice with the trees. It was guided masterfully by Beth and Leah. This community feels like it will go forth with me in a most supportive way.
