Faith CoLab: Tapestry of Faith: Circle of Trees: A Multigenerational Program about Nourishing Deep Connections with Nature

Spiritual Preparation

Part of Circle of Trees

Find a place where you can be quiet with your thoughts. Close your eyes and breathe deeply for several minutes, perhaps repeating a word or phrase to separate yourself from the activities of the day. When you feel settled and relaxed, reflect on the following:

  • Think about your relationship to nature in general and trees specifically. How close to your home is a tree? What relationship do you have to trees or to a specific tree?
  • Think about what trees give us and how we depend on them to survive. What comes to your mind?
