Memories from International Women’s Day Arts+DanceXchange 2019
Tree Planting Ceremony– Acknowledging and honoring our relationship with the sacred land as we celebrate all that she gives us during the Apple Tree Planting Ceremony. An apple, considered the forbidden fruit in some traditions, is also the symbol of sacred knowledge, fertility, beauty and love…all that is connected to the feminine principle of creation. The Earth, our Great Cosmic Mother, protects us and nurtures us from the day we are born until we return to Her after we take our last breath. This was a beautiful moment of reflection and gratitude.
