Sunday 22 April – Trees of Wisdom, Trees of Life

Trees unite Heaven and Earth – they draw up the water from the ground and capture the light from the sun, to give both food and oxygen to the rest of the living world, as was first discovered by the Unitarian chemist Joseph Priestley (1733 – 1804). In addition, trees are universal symbols of wisdom and life in the great spiritual traditions, from the Garden of Eden in Genesis to the Norse Yggdrasil, from Shamanism to Taoism, uniting the energies of Spirit and Matter. They may thus symbolise the union of our personal and higher selves in our daily practice – ‘Tree for two, and two for Tree’ perhaps?

Led by Mike Rutter. Starts 10.30 am. All welcome.
