This handmade book from author and illustrator Glennie Kindred is a deeply inspiring book for all those who love trees. It encourages our deeper involvement with trees on the physical level, and offers ways we can open our spiritual connection to trees and nature.
The book focuses on 13 native trees of the British Isles and their corresponding 13 moons and place on the wheel of the year's cycle. This is based on the authors understanding of their inherent energy and unique healing properties. This creates a tree circle, which can be planted and used as a sacred grove or celebration circle.
The book explores some of the myths and folklore surrounding these trees, as well as past and present uses of the wood and the herbal and culinary uses of their leaves, sap, fruit and bark.
Illustrated with line drawings of the leaves, flowers and fruit of each of the trees, and also includes a guide to growing and planting trees.
Glennie says: "My books are practical and inspire the reader to self-empowerment. They explore the wild edges of our relationship with the Earth through our native plants and trees, tree lore, herbalism, Earth wisdom, alchemy, celebrating the Earth's cycles and creating heartfelt ceremony. As we change ourselves from the inside, we change our relationship to everything in our lives."
