Delicate though they may seem, willows were designed to be able to move into the most extreme environments.

In the harsh landscape of the high arctic, after even the heartiest conifers cease to grow, you will find whole fields of humble dwarf willows. Seeking water in the desert, you’d be wise to search for their familiar green fringe signaling hidden channels of water.

If you break off the flexible wand of a willow’s branch, it has the ability to re-root almost anywhere. With this intricate strategy, evolved over many millennia of living along river currents and stormy tides, willow branches simply allow themselves to be carried downstream where they can grow anew.

Born from breakage, willows embrace the turbulence that comes with perching yourself on the bank of a moving world, and they are able to use that tumult to thrive.

There is no question that we live in a tumultuous time. And yet, we too we’re born from breakage. We too are here to help the Earth recover and thrive.



Learn the profoundly healing message of Willows (and why self-forgiveness is like willow water, whatever it pours on will thrive). From Chapter 9 of Mirrors in the Earth.

I grasp the trauma and I have looked at the lost connection to a higher power.. I grasp when one is accustomed to privilege, equality can feel like discrimination.. Shame and affluence silences a lot of facts , truths that have been labeled "negative". It is about liberation of the soul from projections of a alienator , and abuser ..
