Family resources for Sunday October 14

To be poor and be without trees is to be the most starved human being in the world. To be poor and have trees is to be completely rich in ways that money can never buy. — Clarissa Pinkola Estes, author of Women Who Run With the Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype

What you can do this week at home:

There are several ways to take today’s workshop home, for example:

  • Share your thoughts and feeling about today’s workshop and the Circle of Trees program with family members, housemates, or co-workers.
  • Try to spend time outside each day, paying special attention to the trees near where you live.  This is an especially beautiful time of year to head up to the mountain and admire the Aspens!
  • Design another Tree Jeopardy game and play it with others.
  • Create a nature journal to record your observations and feelings about trees as you deepen your connection over the course of this program.
  • Think about ways that you can engage with people and trees with respect.
  • Here are some books about trees that you may want to look into
  • Here are some tree related project ideas.


I hope to see your family on Sunday!  Let me know if I can be supportive to you in any other way!  I am here for you.


All my best with blessings,
