Sacred Trees

It’s an interesting fact that trees make a significant appearance in a number of religious and spiritual practices.

Biblical & Jewish texts make metaphorical use of trees, the Kabbalah’s  “tree of life” and the Biblical “tree of knowledge” in the book of Genesis. Also The Bodhi tree in Buddhist writings, under which The Buddha is known to have reached enlightenment. Druids and pagans were also known to practice worship among sacred groves of trees. It’s well documented that Trees are known for sharing the spiritual path with humanity.

For me trees bring to mind the magnificence and potential of the natural world.
