Age Group: Adult

Take a walk deep into the woods.
When you’ve gotten good and lost,
Close your eyes.
Take a few deep breaths.
Tell your brain to leave you alone for awhile.

Let your body sway in time to the earth’s heartbeat.
Spread your arms out for balance
If the earth’s rotations
Start to make you feel dizzy.

Tell your ears to stop hearing
What they want to hear.
Instead, listen to the language
Of the trees.
You’ll remember their words.
They are your family.

Stick out your tongue.
Taste the sunlight.

Sniff the air.
Smell the scent of memories.

When you have forgotten your name,
Open your eyes.

Really see.

A special tree will be calling to you.
You will know it is your tree
By its exquisite form and grace.
It will stand out amidst all of the other trees.
You’ll quickly begin to fall in love.

Approach your tree.
Nestle yourself into its deep
And gnarled roots.
Rest your cheek
Against its roughly barked trunk.


A moment of lucid clarity dawns.
This is not simply a tree
You are sharing this
Eternity of sighs with.
The tree forgives you
For your ignorance.

You realize that your tree
Is an intelligent, immobile Sage
Full of great wisdom.

It spends its life entirely
In silent meditation.

Your tree has come to completely
Believe in absolutely anything.
But most of all,
Your tree believes in you.

Absorb the tree’s wisdom.
Feel it nourish your soul.

Thank your tree,
And arise from your slumber.

You are fully awake now.

Leave your tree a gift.
Promise to return.

Keep this promise
As often as possible.
