10:30am-11:30am, KUUF sanctuary, Victoria Poling – As some of Earth’s oldest living individuals, trees have much to teach us about the transformations we experience through living in relationship to ourselves, to each other, and to all that is. Drawing on observations, poetry, and teachings from Indigenous, Christian, and Humanist sources, we will explore the deep solace, nourishment, and joy to be found in the company of forests.
