TREE WISDOM by Vincent Karche
There are a few tree books in the Cygnus Review this season, but each one is subtly different and it’s very hard to leave any of them out. This one is written by a young French former opera singer and now forester and retreat leader. It will not be much help in identifying trees, but a huge help in relating to trees and appreciating the support and guidance they can offer to the soul, whether that soul is troubled or not. Vincent talks about his own life and the healing he received from being in the trees in the wilds of northern Canada. He also gives tips and exercises we can all use to deepen our relationship with the forest. I can highly recommend this to anyone who feels the call of nature in their life.
