SDI Plants Azaleas in Atlanta, Georgia

SDI celebrates Earth Day at Ignatius House in Atlanta, Georgia by planting two azaleas.

The SDI Coordinating Council proclaimed scripture, poetry, and stories about the importance of being in nature and respecting all creation from Aboriginal Australia, Buddhist, Jewish, Christian, and Islamic traditions.

Local Atlanta community members helped to plant the azaleas, watering Earth and the azaleas with water blessed during the Cultivating Compassion educational events. The water came from all over the world as participants from five continents contributed water to a blessed bowl during the education events.

During the Contemplative Retreat, participants contributed ... and poured more blessed water of hope for a compassionate future.


Going green is about more than using fewer resources; it’s also about giving back resources to a world that’s given much to each of us. That’s why Spiritual Directors International plants trees.

Every one of us participates in shaping a world that supports life that flourishes. We invite you to join Spiritual Directors International’s commitment to foster forests by planting trees.

Do you have a tree planting story to share?
