    Words from the Willow:

    I am strong and rooted, yet able to bend and flow with the changing wind. My roots grow near water, the element of feeling; my branches reach up to the moon, governess of cycles. I am a tree of life, death and rebirth. I honor the wisdom of my feelings and grow strong from their fertile soil. I hold and honor all of who I am and all of who you are, through every phase of life. My bark produces salycin, a pain remedy- I relieve pain and transform wounds into new growth. I help create new life in myself and others by easing the pathways through change. I am a bridge between what is and what is yet to be. Ancient and wise, I see you, honor you, and embrace you, exactly as you are. Welcome home.
