The Sacred Tree's Unfolding Wisdom -- Renewing Ourselves through Art and Symbol
The symbol of the tree, almost more than any other, lifts us from the familiar to the divine, the mundane to the sacred. The Sacred Tree, or Tree of Life, may take many different forms, yet it is an archetypal symbol found in nearly every world culture. From its roots the Waters of Life flow, quenching the thirsty and rescuing the dying. All who drink from it's spring are Renewed. All who eat of its fruit are Revived. Perhaps never has there been a more important symbol to remember and reflect upon at this time in world history than that of the Sacred Tree. An experience through painting, come and explore this relevant and eternal symbol, its gifts, and message for our time. How does the Tree provide protection, shelter, nourishment, and wisdom in my own life? What are the Waters that I need to drink from to maintain my own health, balance and stay replenished? How can I better ground myself while simultaneously stretching for the stars? What other Life Symbols have emerged on my path and become important to me? Come join together in this exploration through the use of acrylic paints on canvas/paper!
