A Sacred Year with the Trees
March 2019- February 2020. Return to your roots by connecting with trees, who have been honored throughout the ages. In the Irish spiritual and healing tradition, tree wisdom, energy and medicine is a part of our heritage, and with the ecological concerns of our planet, the importance of trees is once again gaining momentum. The Irish Ogham alphabet connects us to the trees, as each has their own letter and rune symbol, offering a mystical as well as functional threshold. Additionally, each of the 13 sacred trees is honored through the lunar calendar in alignment with seasonal rhythms and energies.
Join me for a year long journey with the trees. Each month we will connect with the specific tree that is lunarly aligned with that season. We will learn the spiritual as well as the medicinal properties of the trees. We will deepen into our own relationship with the land and naturally tend to the Earth through our connection with these stately and wise beings. Each month we will journey with the trees in guided meditation, create medicines with the gifts of the trees, create the rune for that tree and explore different ways to connect with their wisdom and offerings. We will listen to the trees, ask what they need and be stewards to them.
A Sacred Year with the Trees meets one Sunday per month from March 2019- February 2020. In person in Denver, Colorado with three sessions via live online connection from Ireland. Class time is from 3-6 PM on Sunday afternoons: March 10, April 7, May 12, June 9, July 7, Aug 11, Sept 8, Oct 6, Nov 10, Dec 8, Jan 12 and Feb 9. $495. $100 non-refundable deposit to hold your spot with the remaining balance due in two equal installments (due March and September).
