Our ceremonies are less about words and more about cultivating a heart connection
with the heart of nature - and trees.
The For A Tree ceremony is rooted in a percussive, energetic and spoken conversation with a specific tree
that communicates our offerings of gratitude the Earth over.
These are gatherings where rattles, drums, songs, ribbons of adornment, water nourishment,
spoken word and sounds of silence
all serve as sacred prayers of gratitude.
For A Tree’s annual, global call to ceremony has reached people all over our planet! We know from participants’ feedback that single individuals and groups from two to 50 or more, have heard and led this call.
From the USA, UK, Canada, France and Australia.
Friends, family, colleagues and strangers have initiated and participated in FAT ceremonies
in forests, public spaces, their gardens, backyards, apartments, schools, offices and even an airport and a cemetery.
The trees aren’t picky. They are receptive to all our offerings of thanks.
“I left an hour-long tree ceremony led by Rani and Woody unable and unwilling to look at trees the same way. We crossed a threshold into the deepest place of connection in the most meaningful way. I came back into my everyday life in an expanded relationship with them. Ever since, I’ve incorporated a daily practice of extending my gratitude to them.”
