Join our guide Hannah McQuilkan on a journey to discover how trees have been revered by different indigenous cultures around the world. Listen to ancient myths and stories about trees. Learn how to communicate and connect to trees. Spend time with towering rimu, tawa, pukatea, rātā and tree ferns that make up the native forest of Sanctuary Mountain Maungatautari. You will never look at trees the same way again!
Since the beginning, trees have been worshipped across our planet by most indigenous cultures. From Ireland to Scandinavia, China, India, Iran and The Americas, trees have held a vital role as medicine, shelter, food and spiritual inspiration.
We will end with a tea ceremony of tea brewed from forest plants and a tree blessing.
