Journeys at the Sacred Tree
Saturday, May 17, 9:30am - 4:30pm
Asbury, NJ (near Hackettstown)
The Sacred Tree has been a centerpiece of many spiritual traditions from earliest times.
From the Tree of Life to the World Tree, the Tree of Wisdom and the Cosmic Tree, people have celebrated the archetypal tree as a source of connection with their ancestors and a way of accessing spiritual realms. Tree spirits can be powerful healers and teachers, leading us to a deeper connection with spirit and a more meaningful awareness of life.
In this experiential workshop, you will interact with tree spirits to gain information, insight, balance and harmony in your life. We will spend part of our time outdoors among the trees along the banks of the Musconetcong River, on ancestral land of the Leni Lenape people. Using shamanic techniques, such as journeying, ritual and ceremony, we will each deepen our understanding and personal relationship with our own Sacred Tree.
Previous shamanic journey experience is helpful but not required.
