Atlanta Earth Day: Sing for the Trees

Image and sculpture by Bruno Torfs http://brunosart.com/

First, thanks to YOU for checking this out, to Maurice LeCroyThe Human Community, the Plant Community: One Community, Present to Exquisite Relatedness, by 2021, for co-creating the event, and to the Australian sculptor, Bruno Torfs, for the image of his art. Springing from the heart of Susan Elizabeth Hale, EARTH DAY- SING FOR THE TREES is a global initiative to pause at Noon, April 22, and sing to the trees. Also at source: Earth Mother/Gaia/BlackMadonna, who finds humor in our naming of her, and who, in all seriousness, calls us to come together, in a moment of time, in acknowledgment and appreciation of plant life for so sustaining us. THIS WE CAN DO.

NOON:
SING FOR the TREES facilitated by Tom Blue Wolf: The South East was the apothecary of Native America; The Muskogee Creek were the pharmacists. Part of their intimate knowing of plants was their songs. Taught by his grandfather, who knew hundreds of these songs, Tom will lead us ceremonially into the song of the Willow Tree. We will gather together to chant/sing/croon/tune ourselves to the vibrational level for communicating a resonate “tone” with the tree people. This “tone” will be consistent with the creation story of our mutual interdependence with the tree people. Bring a sacred object for the community altar.

    A beautifully crafted creation, Ms Albright!
    And a beautiful opportunity for recreation of community, with one another, and with the plant world which so abundantly and magnanimously sustains us.
