Communicating with Tree Spirits“There is always music amongst the trees in the garden, but our hearts must be very quiet to hear it.” ~ Minnie Aumonier
“Listen to all the teachers in the woods. Watch the trees, the animals and all the living things--you'll learn more from them than books.” ~ Joe Coyhis

If you've found this page, then you well may feel a special kinship with the trees. What beauty, majesty and wonder may be discovered in the depths of the forest! If you would you like to learn more about Communicating with the Tree Spirits, this workshop is for you.
If you love trees—and you wouldn't be here if you didn't—you may want to visit GrandfatherPoplar.com for learn about my novel and read the latest blogs (mostly poetry), or buy the book on Amazon by clicking here.
Communicating with the Tree Spirits
DATE TBD, typically a 3-hour class
Facilitated by: Diana Henderson
Explore the loving realm of the Tree Spirits! At this workshop, we'll discuss and commune with the tree spirits. The first hour consists of indoor instruction. In the remainder of the class, we make an excursion into the realm of Nature for (1) a live demonstration of the techniques, and (2) students participation and practice. We end the class back inside to discuss what the tree spirits shared. Learn to receive wisdom and align with harmony of the trees to heal your heart and bring balance to your life.
This workshop will include:
What to Bring: Attendees will want to wear comfortable clothes, preferably something light in color, good walking shoes and some form of insect repellant. Bring water, a blanket (and yoga mat and/or cushion if you wish), notebook and pen and any other items for your personal needs.
Other classes that may be of interest:
In addition, at least a couple of times each year, we discuss aspects of Nature and the invisible realms of planet Earth at A Gathering of Angels monthly meetings.
Coming in the near future: Publication of Diana's first novel, Grandfather Poplar, and accompanying nature spirit wisdom card decks and meditation CDs.
As a child, I felt certain that the best place in my world was the forest behind my home. I loved to escape my five siblings and trek into the woods where I could tell all the truths of my soul to the trees, the stones, the birds, the brook and the wind. Along with my dog Laddie, the creatures of nature were friends who never judged. When one of my sisters invaded my woodland sanctum to fetch me home, I always left nature's companions reluctantly, but I returned to my family feeling more myself—somehow more at home.
Perhaps my Celtic and Cherokee ancestry contributes to my enchantment with the nature spirits; certainly my affinity with the unseen realms of Mother Earth goes back to my early life when I loved to explore and "commune" with nature. As a little girl growing up in a rural setting, I embraced and talked with the trees, harmonized with the nature spirits as they sang sweet, melodic songs through me, collected, hugged and delighted in the magic of stones and listened to the wisdom of the wind, earth and water. After a hiatus of living in the "real" world, I returned to my roots in adult life as I came more into my own and remembered the truth of my soul!
Although I have read many books on working with the unseen realms of Mother Earth, the majority of my education has come from the Nature Spirits themselves along with the guidance of my primary spirit guide and ancestor, who was a Medicine Man in his lifetime. I hope you'll join me for this workshop to remember the fun and fancy of childhood dreams and accept once again the joy of living in harmony with the fairies, tree spirits, animal spirits, elementals and all that is the magical realm of the nature spirits!
In December 2015, I published my first novel, Grandfather Poplar, as an e-book on Amazon.com. It's the story of a 14-year-old girl whose world revolves around her dearest friends, the trees, with whom she has communicated much of her life. Here's a bit about the story:
"Melissa Kincaid has a secret that she shares with no one—something that makes her different from everyone else in her life. She communicates with trees and with one elder poplar whom she calls Grandfather. The spirit of her ancestor, a Cherokee medicine man, watches over her and takes her into another realm in her dreams. A world exists beyond this one, and she keeps this truth completely to herself—until the day she meets Arthur, a Cherokee boy who has seen her in his own dreams. Together they fight to save the forest that is home to her dearest companions, the trees, and to her own heart." ~ Diana
