If you've ever admired a tree for its simple beauty, appreciated its cool shade, or loved climbing up its large trunk and branches, you are part of a deeply rooted tribe that Jean Shinoda Bolen calls "tree people." In Like a Tree, this bestselling author and Jungian analyst invites us to explore our sacred relationship to these magnificent plants, and uncover the hidden wisdom they have to offer.
Drawing on her own walking practice among the giant redwoods, and as an advocate for a Fifth World Conference on Women at the United Nations, Bolen invites us to reflect on a variety of topics including: the role of trees as archetypal and sacred symbols, what it means to be a "tree person" in this time in history, and how this might have to do with the next evolutionary step for humanity.
Sprinkled with wisdom drawn from the Tao, Buddha's teachings, Jung, and Hildegard von Bingen's life, Like a Tree is a mystical and poetic book that inspires us to deepen our unique relationship to trees and take action in our own natural ways.
