📒The Sacred Tree ✍ Carole M. Cusack
✏The Sacred Tree Book Summary : The fundamental nature of the tree as a symbol for many communities reflects the historical reality that human beings have always interacted with and depended upon trees for their survival. Trees provided one of the earliest forms of shelter, along with caves, and the bounty of trees, nuts, fruits, and berries, gave sustenance to gatherer-hunter populations. This study has concentrated on the tree as sacred and significant for a particular group of societies, living in the ancient and medieval eras in the geographical confines of Europe, and sharing a common Indo-European inheritance, but sacred trees are found throughout the world, in vastly different cultures and historical periods. Sacred trees feature in the religious frameworks of the Ghanaian Akan, Arctic Altaic shamanic communities, and in China and Japan. The power of the sacred tree as a symbol is derived from the fact that trees function as homologues of both human beings and of the cosmos. This study concentrates the tree as axis mundi (hub or centre of the world) and the tree as imago mundi (picture of the world). The Greeks and Romans in the ancient world, and the Irish, Anglo-Saxons, continental Germans and Scandinavians in the medieval world, all understood the power of the tree, and its derivative the pillar, as markers of the centre. Sacred trees and pillars dotted their landscapes, and the territory around them derived its meaning from their presence. Unfamiliar or even hostile lands could be tamed and made meaningful by the erection of a monument that replicated the sacred centre. Such monuments also linked with boundaries, and by extension with law and order, custom and tradition. The sacred tree and pillar as centre symbolized the stability of the cosmos and of society. When the Pagan peoples of Europe adopted Christianity, the sacred trees and pillars, visible signs of the presence of the gods in the landscape, were popular targets for axe-wielding saints and missionaries who desired to force the conversion of the landscape as well as the people. Yet Christianity had its own tree monument, the cross on which Jesus Christ was crucified, and which came to signify resurrected life and the conquest of eternal death for the devout. As European Pagans were converted to Christianity, their tree and pillar monuments were changed into Christian forms; the great standing crosses of Anglo-Saxon northern England played many of the same roles as Pagan sacred trees and pillars. Irish and Anglo-Saxons Christians often combined the image of the Tree of Life from the Garden of Eden with Christ on the cross, to produce a Christian version of the tree as imago mundi.

📒Myths Of The Sacred Tree ✍ Moyra Caldecott
✏Myths of the Sacred Tree Book Summary : Essential to life on earth since the beginning of time, trees hold a special place in our collective consciousness: rooted in the earth, reaching skyward, nourished by the elements, and enlivened by the sap running through their veins, they provide a metaphor for what it means to be human. Moyra Caldecott has gathered here a collection of myths celebrating the rich symbolism of trees, all bringing to life a time when the natural world was deeply respected and trees and forests were thought to be inhabited by spirits and divine beings. Bound by the organized structure of modern life, the human spirit yearns for the wildness and freedom of primal nature represented by forests in their natural state. Caldecott's book has captured and given voice to this spirit.
📒Root Of The Sacred Tree ✍ Ben Romine
✏Root of the Sacred Tree Book Summary : A big-city psychiatrist has lost his sanity and bolted his practice. A Lakota elder has abandoned his Vision and given up on his people. A powerful woman has lost her confidence and fled from her They are separated by three-quarters of a continent and an even wider cultural chasm, but they are collected by an invisible hand and cast like dice onto a dangerous but astonishing road. Root of the Sacred Tree is neither a feel-good tale demonstrating that We-are-all-Related nor is it of the "spiritual journey" genre. Rather it is the tale of three very different, angry, stubborn, gifted people who find themselves on a dangerous path toward healing.
📒The Rhyme Of The Sacred Tree ✍ Dr Christine Botchway
✏The Rhyme of the Sacred Tree Book Summary : This is a unique and captivating story about the abduction of a royal prince of Africa who finds himself enslaved by men whose lust for wealth have caused them to deny his humanity and indeed his royalty, and pack him like cargo, and haul him thousands of miles across the Atlantic. This poetically-woven masterpiece brings to the forefront not only the story of slavery but also the little-known reality of the enslaving of the Irish and Scottish on the sugar plantations of Barbados. What makes this story unique is the unexpected twist and explosion into the secret of how freedom cannot be taken from one who is truly free. This is a story that will make you look differently at every person you meet and re-examine your own belief system. Once you read this poem . . . something inside you will change forever.

📒A Druid S Herbal Of Sacred Tree Medicine ✍ Ellen Evert Hopman
✏A Druid s Herbal of Sacred Tree Medicine Book Summary : An in-depth look at the history, herbal uses, and spiritual aspects of the sacred trees in the ancient Celtic Ogham Tree Alphabet • Details the 20 trees of the ogham alphabet and their therapeutic and magical virtues • Examines the Forest Druid practices associated with each tree as well as the traditional uses in Native American medicine • Describes the Celtic Fire Festivals and how each tree is featured in these holy days • By the author of A Druid’s Herbal for the Sacred Earth Year The Druids used the ancient Ogham Tree Alphabet to work magic and honor the dead, surrounding each letter with medicinal and spiritual lore. Poets and bards created a secret sign language to describe the letters, each of which is named for a tree or a plant. For centuries this language was transmitted only orally in order to protect its secrets. Combining her extensive herbal knowledge and keen poetic insight, Ellen Evert Hopman delves deeply into the historic allusions and associations of each of the 20 letters of the Ogham Tree Alphabet. She also examines Native American healing methods for possible clues to the way ancient Europeans may have used these trees as healing agents. Druidic spiritual practices, herbal healing remedies, and plant lore are included for each tree in the alphabet as well as how each is used in traditional rituals such as the Celtic Fire Festivals and other celebrations. Hopman also includes a pronunciation guide for the oghams and information on the divinatory meanings associated with each tree.
