Introduction, Workshop 7: Council Among the Trees, Part 2

In "Circle of Trees," a Tapestry of Faith program

Come back with me into a story we all share, a story whose rhythm beats in us still. The story belongs to each of us and to all of us, like the beat of [a] drum, like the heartbeat of our living universe. — Joanna Macy, in Thinking Like a Mountain

This workshop completes the ritual begun in Workshop 6, an adaptation of the ritual A Council of All Beings, presented by Joanna Macy, John Seed, Pat Fleming, and Arne Naess in the 1988 book Thinking Like a Mountain: Toward a Council for All Beings.

Note: Only do this Opening and Activity 1 if Workshops 6 was done at a previous meeting. If you are providing Workshops 6 and 7 as a single, longer workshop, add the time allotted for this Opening and Activity 1, Reconnecting, to Activity 3, Council Among the Trees.
