Lesson 7 - Dan, a Lakota Elder, shares in Kent Nerburn’s book, The Girl Who Sang to the Buffalo, from the trilogy series, shares these words: “The different trees grow together like friends. You go down in the river bottoms, you see the cottonwoods and the birches. They’re together like friends. You go to a hill and find an oak and you think he’s all by himself. But if you look close, he’s standing with his arms over a bunch of little fellows so they can be protected while they grow.” So where is your tree teacher standing? And where do you stand? Through intentional questions, reflection and guided imagery, we will take a look at where your tree is planted, who is surrounding it, and what other trees are standing next to it. Knowing that there are no right or wrong answers, you can observe to gain a better understanding of yourself. What does your tree want you to know about your surrounding community? How does your community nourish you or deplete you? Through continued dialogue and bonding with your tree teacher, it will show you the answers to these questions. We do not stand alone and it is through our communities that we are able to connect more completely with life. Your tree will show you how these community connections are feeding you and how you can, in turn, serve them as well.
