This section is dedicated to Great Trees of the World. Trees which, by their age, their position, their personality, and their accumulated wisdom, have developed a unique essence quite distinct from that of their kind.
These ancient trees often inspire awe in those who take time to view them. However, often tourists flock to these trees, taking a quick photo and moving on, without stopping to really take in the majesty of the tree, to allow subtle communication to occur, to partake of a timeless wisdom. These great trees speak most clearly in silence and in contemplation.
When you do take time to sit in communion with one of these unique giants, you feel an immense presence and can often have a sense of being overcome by the benevolence and wisdom that the Great Tree seeks to impart to you. These great trees link us profoundly with the earth, with our roots, our ancestry. They remind us of the legacy of the past and our strong links to the world of plants and trees. They take us back to a time when there was a greater sense of reverence of nature, to tribal, indigenous peoples who lived in profound connection to nature and its cycles.
These ancient trees depend on the forests or trees around them to provide the right environment for their continued life. Many of these forests are under severe pressure from logging operations or deforestation to generate agricultural land.
The essences taken from these trees, hundreds or even thousands of years old as they are, are very deep-acting and produce lasting, foundational changes in our lives.
On the Levels of Essence Action diagram, these great trees often have an action from levels 5 right through to 10.
As time progresses, many more great trees will join the initial list of six essences, collected from all parts of the globe.
