During O, Miami poetry month, come learn the language of trees
Trees are known to communicate to one another through an underground network, a kind of fungal and bacterial internet. It’s possible that they have something to say to us, as well. I invite our community to take a walk in a nearby park or anywhere in your neighborhood where you might come across some trees.
O, Miami’s “Oracle in the Trees” is a contemplative, guided walk in a pine rockland habitat, which is endangered and unique to this region. The walk is informed by environmentally focused healing practices such as shinrin yoku (forest bathing), horticultural therapy and ecotherapy. Participants will explore the ecology of the landscape while engaging in a series of sensory experiences focusing on poetry, reflection and deep listening.
