“These poems emptied my mind of worries, noise and rush. They took me to a silent place within myself, where I am free of mental narratives. Through both, the words and the illustrations, the embodiment of trees in this book helped me inhabit the peace that arises when the present moment becomes the primary experience of the Self.” —Corazon Tierra, poet, performer and movement educator

From the Introduction: Healing with the Poet-trees
Our soul knows what we often forget: trees are at the center of the dance of life and death. They hold our lives in their hands. Trees hold Earth together, feed her creatures and give us the Breath of Life. From the oxygen we breathe to the food we eat, our one legged siblings are at the center of our existence.
But we forget. We take trees for granted, like we do with the air we breathe and the earth we walk. We are so busy doing and worrying that we no longer recognize their essential gifts. Few people slow down long enough to appreciate the trees that stand, like old sentinels, guarding our daily walk.
Trees provide us with the very experience our BodySoul craves to return home to our Sacred Self and back into the embrace of Earth Mother. In this embrace we become again Children of Earth, feeling our belonging, our value and our place in this planet. Oneness with trees and nature connects us to the healing power of Earth Mother and opens our eyes and heart to the beauty of this planet. In this moment of presence, we are rested, aligned, renewed and healed.
Seven Paths in the Tao of Trees
The poems whispered by the Poet-trees to poet-shaman-artist Maria Mar are divided in seven paths:
- Path of Beauty: Poems to awaken your eyes to the beauty of creation.
- Path of the Heart: Poems to overflow your heart with love, joy and gratitude.
- Path of Co-creation: Poems to connect you to your Creation Partners in the universe; to feel supported, guided and part of the flow of life.
- Path of Transformation: Poems to awaken the magic in you through a change of perception that changes your world.
- Path of Presence: Poems to return you to your BodySoul and give yourself the present of now.
- Path of Freedom: Poems to help you release limitations and align with your Sacred Self.
- Path of Healing: Poems to activate your self-healing frequency, support you in your healing and see the gift in your healing journey.
