Prayers for the Forests
Where trees breathe
New life is born
Where each branch reaches out to me
I know myself held in the arms
of purest generosity
Where the leaves fall
I am blessed with a giving back
that nourishes the roots of my soul
For the trees reflect who and how I can be
Standing tall, true, honest and undeniably me
Unafraid to love, to give, to share and to bend
So I bless the forests
As I learn from them
~ by Clare Dubois
Prayer for the Forests Meditation
In this meditative journey we will consciously merge with the living intelligence of the forest floor. We will become the root system of the forest, weaving our roots together, trusting energetically that we can open to the combined consciousness of all the women gathered in the circle.
In this togetherness, we will listen for our prayer for the forests of the world. We will visualise it’s full manifestation, and in doing so, we will consciously call forth and invoke a movement for the forests and the feminine and see it rolling through the mountains, rivers and oceans, rippling as a huge wave of love for the planet.
What becomes possible when millions of women remember who and what we really are – and then direct that collectively towards the greening of our world?
We want to find out.

“In my garden trees and plants my ancestors planted, grow so willingly. They form the foundation, the base of my life. The root system is unique. Roots search and find any other roots. They get caught up and tangled into each other, and this unconditional cooperation is creating our solid ground. It’s brilliant. I am a student. I learn from the soil and the plants as with its intelligence, receptivity and readiness allows all living species to be allowed to take root, grow and heal. I want to grow along with, and in respect for these genius principles. My intention is to share the insights I receive from working with trees, seeds, soil and soul. I am a thankful and proud treesister.” ~ Anne Kathrine Solbakken, Norway
“Last year I had a call from the agricultural area that i was outrenting. it asked me not to be made subject to poison anymore, and I listened… This year, I gave up the revenue, started an agroforestry project on 90 acres.

“My dream is that in the country where I live the trees will get the opportunity to become a forest again, to connect. That the people that live here respect the trees, and be grateful for what they do for us. To take care of these precious fellow earthlings.” ~ Diana van Trijffel-Pak, Netherlands
