Instead of making a New Year's resolution, follow the advice of a tree.
Trees shape the mythology of cultures all over the world. Trees show us where the fairies live. Just as the forest is the place where untried heroes are transformed, we, too, can be both lost and found among the trees. That's because trees have messages for us, if we'll just listen.
I offered 14 of those messages to those who attended this year's Winter Solstice ritual. Which one of these trees calls to you: Alder, Apple, Ash, Birch, White Birch, Cherry, Elder, Hawthorn, Hazel, Hickory, Locust, Red Oak, White Oak? Each message comes with an instruction. Are you ready to follow the wisdom of the trees?
