Upcoming Event: A Celebration of the Tree of Life

By Randy Morris and Molly Brown. Journeys is cosponsoring a fantastic Seattle event on November 6th. Read more about it here!

The Tree of Life is a fitting emblem for the community-making that is an essential part of the Great Turning.  An image of diversity and unity, it is present throughout our human history in myth, religion and culture.  In recent decades scientists have expanded our knowledge of evolution using the many-branched model of the Tree of Life, showing ever more clearly the common origins of all species on earth.  We are beginning to remember what we always knew, that in our multitude of species and in our diversity of human cultures, we are all brothers and sisters circled under the One Tree.  It is an essential part of reclaiming our Indigenous Souls.

Randy Morris, President of the Board of Rite of Passage Journeys, is co-chairing this event with Molly Brown, a local artist.  It is co-sponsored by Rite of Passage Journeys; St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church and Saint Mark’s Cathedral.  In addition to Joanna Macy, Michael Meade, noted poet and storyteller, will perform, along with singer Gina Salá and the Amazing Grace choir, dancer Betsey Beckman and many others representing diverse spiritual traditions.  Char Sundust will be opening the directions.

This celebration is an exercise in ritual and earth community, and so it embodies the essential values that Rite of Passage Journeys seeks to bring into the world. Please join us on November 6 at 7 p.m. for this memorable event.  See the website for details.  Tickets are available through Brown Paper Tickets and contributions may be made directly on the Journeys website.  Buy your tickets soon, as the event is sure to sell out early!
