Speak Like You Mean It
In conjunction with Anne O Art’s gallery show, Majesty of Trees, this event showcases the extraordinary life forms that surround, shelter and sustain us, and that too many of us take for granted. Join us for an evening of spoken word from people for whom trees hold a special place in their lives.
Daniel leads a US Forest Services initiative called Keeping Forest As Forest. As a child, Daniel spent a lot of time in the woods of South Carolina. Today he is working to save our forests, which are behind so much that we take for granted, including fresh water.
Trees help us find a way back to ourselves if we stand with them in stillness, a life lesson that has carried Amy since she was a girl. Amy will share how the power of standing with trees has impacted and shaped her life’s purpose, to help people face uncertainty by leading from their Center.
Spoken word events are open! If you have a story to share on the show theme (about 7 min.), either put your name in the hat when you arrive or contact Melissa Gordon at firstname.lastname@example.org.
