Tree Season, part 5 - Trees & Water In Folklore
bringing our tree season back into the spirit of folklore and including the spirits of water ... next session Sunday 26th March 2023
Through our Nature Folklore Tree Season series we have shared stories, poems, and hopefully some practical instructions about how we can connect to and passionately relate to trees. This series has included encouragement for more trees to be planted, from a few more trees planted in our small gardens, to some help with a local community woodland, onto the growing expansion of farmland being converted to new viable and sometimes vast native woodlands and forests.
To conclude this delightful series, that has been a huge pleasure for me to host, we return to some of the folklore that may guide our passion and actions for and with trees. We also explore the folklore of water too, because without water there would be no trees, and maybe without trees there would be no water.
We could view trees and water as mundane presences within our lives. When trees and water are among us we can take them for granted and believe they are a fixed permanent fixture that will never go away. But sometimes they do go away ... and we soon dive into prayers and ritual passionately asking for their return. How about care and ritual when trees and water are among us too?
I believe the folklore can cause trees and water to seem and feel much more interesting for us, and be much more alive among us and as part of us.
