This episode considers the importance of planting trees in a ritual manner that can help reduce climate anxiety, while also building a greater sense of human community. Michael Meade describes how creative rituals can deepen people’s commitment to the difficult work of healing both culture and nature. He points out the lack of wisdom in thinking that there can be a single solution for the long standing, complex issues that drive the climate crisis. Ritual can provide ways to connect the mind and the heart and reconnect us to the sacredness of life and the ongoing story of creation.
