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, consider the poem "Let the Trees Be Consulted" in Activity 3, Story — Tree Poems. Ask yourself:

  • Are there other ways that trees should be consulted?
  • What are your favorite poems about trees?
