The Tree of Life
is an ancient multicultural metaphor.
A metaphor, in indigenous terms, is encoded wisdom:
vibrant and alive.
The Tree of Life holds for us the wisdom of 'Being Human':
the individual seated in the Collective.
In an aspen grove, the entire grove is one organism.
And from this organism rises many unique expressions of
each separate yet at the root, one.
We are all in this time of great change together.
And yet our most powerful and effective actions
are at the individual level.
The thriving of each tree informs and feeds the whole.
The collective is essential for the thriving of the individual.
It has always been so.
