Beech Tree - Tree Wisdom Journey

All Forestheart Tree Wisdom Journey workshops are approximately two hours long and include a guided meditation in the form of a visionary drum journey followed by a beautifully crafted PowerPoint presentation with stunning pictures.

After your personal experience with the tree of your choice, you will learn about this tree's botanical, medicinal, practical, symbolic and mythological relevance in the context of ancestral Tree Lore. The Tree Wisdom Journeys are designed to speak both to the intuitive as well as the rational sides of our being.

A previous workshop participant said:

"The guided journey was a deep experience and the presentation that followed allowed my experience to continue. Yannick weaves magic through his meditative journeys in collaboration with the wisdom of the trees he presents. His beautiful artwork in the presentation brought my experience to life. Truly transformational".

The Beech Tree - Tree Wisdom Journey:

The Beech tree forests once covered large areas of Europe. Our ancestors were at home in beech tree forests and deeply familiar with its patterns.

The beech tree has become associated with books and writing. In German, the word Buch means "book", whilst Buche means "beech". The letters in the alphabet are called Buchstaben, which translates as "sticks of the beech tree".

The gothic cathedrals are also said to be inspired by beech tree forests, to draw our pagan ancestors out of the woods and into the stone temples of the new and book-based religion, Christianity. The Beech tree bridges the gap between our pre-Christian and Christian ancestors and can help us make peace with the past.

The Beech tree also holds a very motherly and nourishing quality. Its bark is so thin, that when we touch its surface, our hand can get very close to the tree's most vulnerable layer of living tissue right under the skin of the tree. The beech tree protects itself a little bit less, which makes it easy to connect to. Children often feel drawn to beech trees, because of this tree's accessible and welcoming energetic signature.

These are some of the themes woven into the creation of this visionary Tree Wisdom Journey.
