I have been in a circle of people deepening our relationship with the forest. One of our practices was to become the trees and listen and share what is revealed. I feel the language of trees as compounding, simultaneous, neurotransmission from all over at the same time. Many words in any order creating multiple meanings. The trees speak through the mycelial networks in the soil. The center of intelligence in the trees is in the roots. All the trees are speaking and listening at the same time.
We notice the part of the trees that is above ground but they are more attuned to the below ground where they are linked to each other. If we want to hear we must listen through our feet. And they say we can never fully understand their mysteries… but we must try.
We are related to the trees. We are like their children. They teach us community and reciprocity, giving and receiving as life.
After, we created pictures of our experiences and this was mine.
So beautiful. I’ve got to try this!
Thanks, and yes, I think you will find it amazing…
I love your drawing!
