  Come traverse the year honoring our tree allies all around us in this 12-class course,

'Sacred Trees Through the Year'.  

 

  Each monthly class we will meet & honor two-three trees that live in Wabanaki land, also known as Maine, some native to this landscape & some originating elsewhere, learning of folklore, magic & medicine surrounding each one.  Each person will chose one tree to be their ally for the entire year. 

  We will learn identification skills, keep a tree journal, gather prayers/poems/songs of the trees, receive class notes & create magically/medicinally with these majestic allies each class.  As well, an herbal, often tree based, tea will be served. Together as a class we create a Tree Zine honoring our tree allies, offering recipes, poems, prayers, song, drawings, etc,

  Orland course will meet at the 

Yoga Downeast Studio, 98 Castine Rd.
