Written On The Body

What is your relationship with nature? Is it skin deep or is it written on your body and soul? In AST we celebrate all connections and connections with trees. One such connection inspired one of our groups most popular posts inspiring hundreds of comments and others to share their own connection too. Read on to find out more…


We have a lovely and thriving communiTree here at #AncientandSacredTrees. It is one where members feel connected to each other and share many aspects of their connections with trees from the universal to the personal.


How would you celebrate your union with a loved one? How do you celebrate your connection with #trees? When Terese Patmore posted I don’t think she was quite expecting the reaction she got to her post which provoked over 200 comments, discussions and a lot of good wishes. Here is what she said and the photograph she posted...

My name is Teresa (treesa xxx) - I hope you don't mind me sharing my Tree of my life xxx I get married on the 14th of September- the t n s is me and my Simon and each swallow is a bridesmaid xxx blessed be x



How does love express itself? Does it go skin deep or does it arise from within to appear on the surface?


#Tattoos have now become mainstream with endless subjects to present individuals they are written upon. The #TreeOdLife as a subject remains enduringly popular and in these times of environmental crisis may explain the need for many to express their connection with nature in such a personal way.

"I am proud to carry a tree with me always" said Jacquleine Atrill.

Finally, I would like to share with you this lovely tattoo by Victoria Skellington and the sentiment expressed by her mother Joanna Martin about her daughter Victoria.


"My heart sings at the hope next generation gives brings!! May they repair the damage and continue to "speak for the trees"."


Can we repair the damage caused by us to the earth? My daughter is part of the 'next generation'. I worry for the legacy we are leaving her and her friends, and the children of our neighbours the badger, whale, blue tit, dolphin, eagle, rabbit, parrot, leopard, and all the others ...


Here at Ancient and Sacred Trees we are not just a community, we are a movement. It is FREE to join us and you are welcome to write blog articles for us which we share to the group and the Facebook business page.


If enough of us invoke the spirit of the Green Man in some personal way then maybe we can help turn the tide of destruction and plant a seed that will grow into a mighty Tree of Life. Lets 'do our bit' for #climateaction and the #Environment and our wonderful #Trees. It's not just down to the next generation, it's down to all of us.


Blessings on you all and this earth that gives us life. May what we do be for the benefit of all beings everywhere.
