MHC #61 - Honoring White Pine Tree
We're Honoring 13 Trees in 13 Moon here at ElderMooon
Pollen is flying abundantly! White Pine is in flower and contributing to counterbalancing the higher CO2 levels by flowering more and more.
I used to sleep in a sixty foot White Pine up in the top when I was a small child of 6 years old and on. There was a large White Pine tree near our horse barn and a mama bird would always nest each Spring. I would bring bread we baked and wedge myself in between branches and fall asleep swaying in the wind. The feeling of freedom would overwhelm me there.
I went for the swaying because it soothed me deeply just like rocking my own babies did.
I went for the view because I could see outside of my life and get a better perspective.
I went for the smell of the sap that opened my mind, lungs, heart and soul. It calmed me instantly.
I went for the sap-sticky hands that I could cup around my nose and continue to smell even later in my day.
I went to be with the birds because I could understand them up there and imagine I was one myself.
I went because there was a call, on the inside, around when to go and what to bring with a promise of communing.
I went to be with peace.
We'll meet this month to sit with White Pine and attempt to reverently cover some ground around a massive beauty that is sentinel to the northeast here and known globally for medicine, guidance, peace and beauty.
WHEN: Monday 5/23/22 7:00pm EST ZOOM - we'll be changing to evenings for the spring to summer season.
TIME: 75 minutes + recorded in PDF attached

Come with tea, journal/notebook, and whatever you need for undistracted time together as we sit with the magical and ancient, slow but steady growing White Pine Tree
Bring your stories, experience, knowledge, curiosity, and child-like wonder. We’ll talk of the medicine, folk lore, harvesting techniques, botany, and more. We end with a guided visualization healing retreat to White Pine together.
Much Love, Jen
