Workshops for Treefully Managing Change in your Life
There is a natural cycle of change to all things, be it a project, an intention, a dream, a goal, a life purpose, a relationship or a business, that can be found where the forest speaks.
Become seed, become tree, come take a walk in your own forest. Follow the four seasons, their four (inevitable) stages of Seeding, Emergence, Maturation and Manifestation and find answers to your ‘Where next?’ questions.
LIVING TREEFULLY is currently being run as four one-day workshops – one for each season:
WINTER – The time of SEEDING, of Potential and Possibility, of Beginnings. The SEED beneath the winter soil is excited by the spark of life, promising what is to come. Our dreams need to start with intuition, idea, potential, the big picture
SPRING The time of EMERGENCE. The tiny plant pokes two little green leaves ABOVE THE SOIL and its growth is nurtured by the warming Spring rain. Our vulnerable dreams need nurturing in order to discover their potential and grow stronger. We build resilience.
SUMMER – The time of MATURATION. Under the harsh glare of the summer sun, the plant’s abundant spring growth requires some DISCIPLINE and STRUCTURE, branches are pruned, laterals are pinched out or a supporting trellis is erected, to ensure the best possible harvest (realisation). When it is ready, our dream must be given structure and subjected to intellectual rigour to make sure it can mature to a successful harvest.
AUTUMN – The time of MANIFESTATION. A time of completion, of HARVEST. If we have followed the cycle well, our dream will be realised. A time of satisfaction and reflection.
And the cycle goes on – we can choose DECAY or GENESIS – an ending or the planting of a new Seed.
Our final cycle of the seasons workshop, Autumn, will be held at The Woolshed from 10am to 4.30pm on Sunday 21 May 2023.
The cycle will then begin again in July with the Winter workshop. For more information contact Pamela at firstname.lastname@example.org. Come along and rustle some leaves.
LIVING TREEFULLY can also be run as a one-day workshop covering all four seasons and I will be presenting this one-day workshop in Glastonbury, UK, on Monday 5 June 2023 and at the Dutch International Druid Camp in the Netherlands on Saturday 24 June 2023.
All this ‘treeful’ wisdom can also be found in my book, Living treefully – An Inspiring Metaphor for Managing Change and can be purchased from The Wheel of Segais website.
“Think like a Tree
Soak up the sun
Affirm life’s magic
Be graceful in the wind
Stand tall after a storm
Feel refreshed after it rains
Grow strong without notice
Be prepared for each season
Provide shelter to strangers
Hang tough through a cold spell
Emerge renewed at the first signs of Spring
Stay deeply rooted while reaching for the sky
Be still long enough to hear your own leaves rustling.”
