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

Activity 4: Grounding

Part of Circle of Trees

Activity time: 10 minutes

Description of Activity

Invite all of the beings and nature spirits to walk back through the gateway, put on their "human masks" (by taking off their spirit masks), and return to the circle holding their spirit masks. After all are seated, invite each person, one at a time, to turn their spirit masks to face themselves and make a small promise to change one aspect of their life that hurts their being or spirit.

When everyone has made their promise, say, in these words or your own:

These promises made shall not be broken. We give thanks to the spirits who have come together today to share their feelings, dreams, hopes, and wisdom.
