We have a lot in common with trees!
Roots - our personal histories that reach back to where we’re from
Trunks - our bones that hold us upright against gravity
Sap - the blood that runs through our veins, powering us
Breath - our cycles of releasing and receiving oxygen and carbon dioxide
Leaves - our outward expression to the world that’s always changing
Healing happens when we align with nature,
not only by observing its metaphors but
by nourishing our own cyclical nature.
Like trees, we point our faces to the sun, receiving light.
We dig deep to be fed by the earth.
We drink in water and air for energy and renewal.
We shed old identities and grow into new ones.
Just as an oak tree would never turn to an elm and say,
“I wish my leaves looked more like yours,”
we too celebrate our unique essences in community.
When we unite as a group, the vista of life is more vibrant,
so we gather together to study and embody the medicine of trees,
our collective roots forming a circle stronger than any one of us.
If you are called to experience the wisdom of trees in community,
feel inspired to embrace more of your treelike nature,
and plant the seeds of your dreams in this fertile soil,
I invite you to join Sacred Grove!

Every three weeks, we’ll journey with the spirit of a new tree, following the Celtic Wheel of the Year through equinoxes, solstices, and cross-seasonal points.
For each tree, we’ll gather to experience:
myth and folklore of the tree
the tree’s special medicine
emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual aspects to draw upon
Access to a private web portal that include salon-style lectures and discussion with Madeline, guided meditations, breathwork, experiential exercises, and prompts to help you connect to the medicine of each tree
access to a private Facebook group to share wisdom with the other people immersed in this study
Like the sacred grove of trees we invoke with the name of our group, this is a safe space to awaken and open to what’s happening in your life and in your heart.
It’s an invitation for you to use these healing metaphors to inspire action and create art, both creatively and in living a rich life of beauty and storytelling.
This isn’t a scientific, botany-driven engagement with trees, but a spiritual activation. A reconnection to the essential nature you were born with and a portal for your imagination to engage with the natural world.
Sacred Grove also isn’t a space to worship trees or anything outside of ourselves. Like a clearing in the forest, it’s a cozy space to gather, learn, embody and remember who we really are.
Community gathering sites like churches have been built amongst trees for thousands of years, not only from religious traditions, but from our universal connection with trees, creatures that make human life possible.
In this virtual gathering site, we also gather amongst the trees. We recognize them as an essential part of human life and a source of power and inspiration.
Every tree has a story, and every tree is a healer.
This includes you.
Like maples, birches, aspens, beeches, elms, firs, oaks, and pines, you have a unique presence in the world, the ecosystem of creatures and creations that forms our incredible diversity of life on Earth.
Come turn your face to the sun.
Dig deep to be fed by your roots.
Drink in more energy and inspiration.
Shed old identities and grow into new ones.
Feel yourself not as a single tree standing against the wind, but surrounded by many in a sacred grove.
Come receive the support you need to nurture, honor, and express your unique essence, beauty, and the elemental role you play in the wheel of life.
