        The Tao of Trees Illustrated Poetry Book

        "It was a winter of despair. I had lost all I had. Exhausted and sick, I sat looking at the trees. I entered a profound silence and in that stillness the Poet-trees whispered healing poems from their magical hearts to my recovering soul. They brought me back to wholeness while they inspired these poems."  --Maria Mar, from the Introduction of Tao of Trees


        The Tao of Trees is a healing journey through the poems and naked bodies of the winter trees to find serenity, awaken your inner wisdom and help your body's amazing self-healing abilities.

        • Experience the gift of mindfulness and return to the delight of your Presence in the here and now, connected to Oneness.
        • Open your eyes and heart to the beauty and healing presence of trees all around you, reconnecting to the magic of the Natural and Sacred Worlds.
        • Fill your subtle body with harmony vibrations that empower your wellness and augment your self-healing intention.
        • Feel the love of Pachamama embracing you from the branches of trees and the flight of birds.
        • Slow down, empty your mind and return to the present and the powerful vibrations of nature around and within you.
        • Look within with loving kindness to release judgment, embrace your divinity and accept yourself unconditionally as a creature of Earth Mother.
        • Empty your mind of worries, problems and streams of recurrent thoughts and connect to the Mind of Oneness for clarity and serenity.


        “These poems emptied my mind of worries, noise and rush. They took me to a silent place within myself, where I am free of mental narratives. Through both, the words and the illustrations, the embodiment of trees in this book helped me inhabit the peace that arises when the present moment becomes the primary experience of the Self.” —Corazon Tierra, poet, performer and movement educator


        The Tao of Trees makes a loving  Gift.

        The experience this book provides goes beyond its words and material value because it provides an oasis for your loved one's body, soul and mind.

        Order the book now and have it in your hands (or the hands of your loved ones) within appx. 12 days for Basic Shipping and 5 days for the Author's TLC Package.

        Shipping within the USA Only.


        BUY IT NOW!

        STEP 1: Choose the Shipping Option. 

        •  Regular Shipping within the USA. If you select Regular Shipping, your book will be sent by Maria from her CreateSpace Store, so it will be shipped by Amazon at their standard shipping option. Orders for Continental USA are usually shipped in about 12 business days, including book printing time. However, during the holidays this time can almost double. Therefore I recommend that you order now, during the Holiday 2018 Sales to get the book by December 15th. I just placed a test order on November 20th and Amazon calculated that I'd get it in December 10, so order now to get it on time. $7 shipping and handling fee.

        • Author's TLC Package: I love to create special packages with goodies for my fans. The Author's TLC Package includes my love and blessings in a carefully packaged bundle that includes the book, the Thank You Art illustration with your name printed in archival quality paper and a Fan TLC Gift Package with papercraft gifts lovingly hand-made by me. Your book is selected from the author's personal stock, so that you don't have to wait for the printing time and sent via Priority Mail for a 2-day delivery period. I also inscribe a dedicated autograph and channeled Tree Message directly into the book (instead of a digital one sent to your email.) $15 shipping and handling fee. Includes the gift package.


        • ONLY 12 BOOKS left for the Author's TLC Package.


        STEP 2: Choose the quantity (For each additional book order in your Regular  Shipping Option, the cost is only $2 and will be added at the time of payment.)

        • Only one book in each  Author's TLC Package, as this package already contains lots of goodies.) You can order more than one Author's TLC Package by selecting the Author's TLC Package option in your shipping and then adding quantities. This will ensure that each book is sent within the expedited gift package.

        • For mixed orders: If you want one or more books within the Author's TLC Package, but also want a number of copies in Regular Shipping, place two different orders. If you order more than one book in one single order, they will all be shipped using the shipping option you selected.

        • Only one shipping address per order for all books. If you want to send the book to different USA addresses, place the orders separately. Of course, you can send all the books to your address when you want to give the book personally.


        STEP 3: Click to buy.

        STEP 4: Make sure to specify the name and address where you want the book to go. Whether you want it delivered to your address or to your gift recipient's address; the address you enter is the address where we will send all the books in the order.. (Only USA addresses accepted.)

        STEP 5: For VIP Invitations to Gift Recipients: If this is a gift order and you have chosen to send the book to yourself, but want the gift recipient to receive a VIP Invitation to the New Year Event, then in the Payment form, select and fill the fields for the Gift Recipient's name and email address. If there are more than one gift recipients, send me the list to the email shown in the receipt form and I will send them the VIP Invitation to the event. Your gift recipient(s) will receive a link to reserve their seat at the special event... and so will you!

        From the Introduction: Healing with the Poet-trees

        Our soul knows what we often forget: trees are at the center of the dance of life and death. They hold our lives in their hands. Trees hold Earth together, feed her creatures and give us the Breath of Life. From the oxygen we breathe to the food we eat, our one legged siblings are at the center of our existence.

        But we forget. We take trees for granted, like we do with the air we breathe and the earth we walk. We are so busy doing and worrying that we no longer recognize their essential gifts. Few people slow down long enough to appreciate the trees that stand, like old sentinels, guarding our daily walk.
        (Introduction Excerpt)

        And yet...

        Trees provide us with the very experience our BodySoul craves to return home to our Sacred Self and back into the embrace of Earth Mother. In this embrace we become again Children of Earth, feeling our belonging, our value and our place in this planet. Oneness with trees and nature connects us to the healing power of Earth Mother and opens our eyes and heart to the beauty of this planet. In this moment of presence, we are rested, aligned, renewed and healed.


        Seven Paths in the Tao of Trees

        The poems whispered by the Poet-trees to poet-shaman-artist Maria Mar are divided in seven paths:

        • Path of Beauty: Poems to awaken your eyes to the beauty of creation.
        • Path of the Heart: Poems to overflow your heart with love, joy and gratitude.
        • Path of Co-creation: Poems to connect you to your Creation Partners in the universe; to feel supported, guided and part of the flow of life.
        • Path of Transformation: Poems to awaken the magic in you through a change of perception that changes your world.
        • Path of Presence: Poems to return you to your BodySoul and give yourself the present of now.
        • Path of Freedom: Poems to help you release limitations and align with your Sacred Self.
        • Path of Healing: Poems to activate your self-healing frequency, support you in your healing and see the gift in your healing journey.


        This beautiful illustrated poetry book...

        • Opens a Sacred Space for you to breathe deeply, releasing physical and mental stress that you carry without even realizing it.
        • Helps you clear your mind, experiencing "Sky Mind" -a mind free of worry, mental narratives and noise, so that you can experience serenity and empty your mind to receive divine revelation and guidance and invite new ideas and renewed energies.
        • Opens your heart and reconnects you to the presence of trees and the blessings they bring into your life.
        • Aids in your healing journey by allowing you to listen to your physical and subtle body and the needs of your soul in the whispers of the "Poet-trees."


        This book is a gift of beauty, harmony, inner peace and healing vibrations that you give yourself and others.
