Since before the Ancient Egyptians, before the Celts and their Tree of Life, trees were embraced by tribes, peoples and religions around the world as a central part of their ceremonies. In the last decade there has been a revival of interest in woodland and forest ceremonies in the west, largely influenced by Asia and India.
I am lucky enough to live in a small woodland in Mydddfai, Llandovery. We wake up to the trees every day and watch the tree ceremony that plays out between the setting sun and the woods each evening. Watching how the changing light impacts the mood of the woodland still catches me by surprise, almost seven years after moving here.
