Let’s read about trees this summer season. The earth is blooming all around us and it’s the perfect time to pull up some shade in the sun and enjoy a good book.
Celtic Tree Magic
By Danu Forest
“This lovely work offers a truly experiential journey . . . It offers the reader a richer understanding of nature and self.”
—Philip Carr-Gomm, Chosen Chief of the Order of Bards, Ovates, and Druids and author of Druid Mysteries
The Magic of Trees
by Tess Whitehurst
“A truly comprehensive magical tome on trees, written in the enchanting style and depth that only Tess Whitehurst can bring to the page. This one belongs in every witch’s library.”

The Songs of Trees
by David George Haskell
“Here is a book to nourish the spirit. The Songs of Trees is a powerful argument against the ways in which humankind has severed the very biological networks that give us our place in the world. Listen as David Haskell takes his stethoscope to the heart of nature – and discover the poetry and music contained within.”
— Peter Wohlleben, author of The Hidden Life of Trees
Like a Tree
by Jean Shinoda Boken
“Read Jean Shinoda Bolen’s Like a Tree, and you will never again see one without knowing it has a novel inside, it’s supporting your life, and it’s more spiritual than any church, temple or mosque. Like a Tree is the rare book that not only informs, but offers a larger consciousness of life itself.”

At times, we humans translate our knowledge of animals into compassion. But, on the whole, our growing understanding of what animals feel is not resulting in more
respectful treatment of them.

The Animal’s
Agenda argues for a more compassionate approach to conservation.
