Extinction Rebellion UK
What it is:
An invitation to build a connection with a tree, relaunched and redesigned in the light of the challenge presented by this Coronavirus shutdown.
Nature connection has been proven to:
help maintain good mental health
reduce stress and anxiety
It may also be that in exploring the interrelationship we have with trees we will be helping them as well as ourselves, to come through the crisis that lies ahead.
During this time when we physically cannot come together, we may well find by connecting in with trees we can draw wisdom from the Wood Wide Web of mycelium that links all trees in a forest together in mutual support of each other.
How to join this amazing regenerative action:
We have set up a new facebook group. Rooting Resilience where we invite you to share your experiences, stories and photos with each other and with us.
You may wish to begin a journal to note down your experiences, draw pictures, take photos or write creatively.
If you do not have access to a tree, you can do this with any living plant including houseplants or dandelions cracking through the pavement or focus on a tree you can see from a window.
How to empower your communities through this time:
We invite and encourage you to create hubs of tree connectors within your local communities for the sharing of experiences and building connection with each other.
Start by imagining that this tree is a living being – which of course it is – and, in the spirit of reciprocity, introduce yourself.
Notice how that feels, and what you see.
You may wish to give something back to it – for example sing a song or a poem, or simply tell it how beautiful it is / feel some gratitude for it.
We will post questions in the facebook group each week to help deepen your experience.
Please help us spread this faster than Corona virus 🙂
With Love and Cœurage
