Why was The Sacred Tree Created?
Because we believe that everyone needs a safe and supportive environment as part of their journey!
The name ‘The Sacred Tree’ was inspired by Native American tradition that “for all the people of the earth, the Creator has planted a Sacred Tree under which they may gather. There they will find healing, power, wisdom and security. The roots of this tree spread deep into the body of Mother Earth. Its branches reach upward like hands praying to Father Sky. The fruits of this tree are the good things the Creator has given to the people; teachings that show the path to love, compassion, generosity, patience, wisdom, justice, courage, respect, humility and many other wonder gifts.” -from the book “The Sacred Tree”
These are the things we hope to provide with the workshops, classes and community groups offered at The Sacred Tree... A space that is meant to be a SAFE and SUPPORTIVE environment to foster healing, growth and community.
“ Improving one’s life is like a dance... Simply begin by taking the first step.” -Kaylouise, Founder & Creative Director
We look forward to helping you take that next step in furthering your own personal journey!
