Elder 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 Elder Tree - Tree Wisdom Journey

There is much to say about Elder and her relationship to myth and folklore. There is a strong connection between the elder tree and the Earth Mother Holle, Hulda, Holler, Ellhorn, ... who also features in the fairy tale of "Frau Holle", which has many similarities to the Three Heads in the Well story Josh shared.


This gorgeous tree embodies a whole Apothecary as well as the old wise women who know how to handle these medicines. Some of them purgative, some sweat-inducing and some restorative, all in one tree. Every part of the tree is medicinal and it likes to grow close to human habitations.
