…my dream …brings to life our connections with ancestors - personal, collective and from the more-than-human world, and the gifts we have to offer to our community. It encourages us to bring our dreams and visions down to earth, within the forest of ancestors, to plant and share them with others, acknowledging the interconnectedness of all beings.

Planting the Magical Sky Tree

I‘m standing in the woods, in a circle of people near a cabin where we’ve gathered. We’re in a clearing, surrounded by tall, swaying trees. Up in the sky I see a surreal, magical tree, floating, shaped like an hourglass, flat on the bottom and the top, with branches and flowers sprouting from the inside. Other people see it too, watching me as I reach up and take hold of the tree around the center of its trunk, pulling until I feel it loosen and give way. It loosens and gives way.

I bring it down to the ground and now it’s 12 inches tall. Holding it in both hands, I close my eyes, waiting, hoping, and it begins to sprout roots. I feel it, alive and wiggling in my hands. It’s alive, wiggling in my hands. Looking down, I see two pieces of bark that have fallen from the large trees around us, lying at my feet in the shape of an X, and I know this is where I need to plant the magical sky tree. I pick up one piece of bark, curved like a garden trowel, and begin digging a hole to plant it in the center of the circle. I plant the magical sky tree in the center of our circle.
