Friday Talk: Forests Can not only Heal, they Save Us
Saturday Workshop: Forest Medicine & Forest Bathing

World-recognized botanist, biochemist and visionary Diana Beresford-Kroeger's startling insights into the hidden life of trees have already sparked a quiet revolution in how we understand our relationship to forests. Now, in a captivating account of how her life led her to these illuminating and crucial ideas, she shows us how forests can not only heal us but save the planet.

Please join us to hear this remarkable author share her story and insights into why trees matter. Diana’s wisdom for why trees are a viable, achievable solution to climate change is inspiring and hopeful in these critical and heart-wrenching times of droughts, floods and fires. She’ll share the intricate ways in which the health and welfare of every living creature is connected to the global forest.

The Saturday workshop will include a screening of her award-winning film Call of the Forest and Diana will introduce and discuss forest medicine for the planet as she “Speaks for the Trees “. The natural medicine from the forest is ready & available to all of us.

Diana will be signing books at both the talk and workshop. Her new memoir, To Speak for the Trees: My Life’s Journey from Ancient Celtic Wisdom to a Healing Vision of the Forest will be available for sale at the venue.
