Writing Our Relationship with Trees: What This Can Teach Us About Ourselves and Living Within the Sacred
“In our workaday world, we are no longer present to the natural world in any manner. We no longer see trees as other beings to commune with. We are not taught to make that connection, not encouraged to speak of trees this way”.~ Thomas Berry on Our Broken Connection to the Natural World
