Go and hug a tree


By Dr. med. Claudia Schmiemann

In so many traditions trees are celebrated as holy entities. In Yoga and Qi Gong and several other awareness focused concepts a tree symbolizes the connectedness of earth and sky, of the dual perspectives of our world. It is safely rooted and nourished by mother earth, communicating with surrounding plants via the mycelium in the soil, exchanging constantly information over many kilometers in radius. With the branches and leaves or needles it reaches out to catch sunlight to turn CO2 into O2 and therefore create an environment mammals like us human beings can live in.

Why not hug a tree or send appreciative thoughts or admiration to it. It makes a change: to us …. and to the tree as well. For sure!
