Wee bit of prayer for tree plantings in Ireland
Please send a wee bit of prayer on December 2, when an aspen tree will be planted at Milltown Institute in Dublin, Ireland, and a hazel tree will be planted at An Croi. These native Irish trees are gifts of gratefulness to earth and for all the beautiful ways the Ireland spiritual direction communities of Milltown, Anamcharadas, An Croi (and many more) collaborated with generous hospitality during the Spiritual Directors International in Europe conference in Dublin, Ireland!
A special thank you to SDI Coordinating Council member Sally Taylor who will deliver the trees from her garden and graciously preside from her Buddhist stance in a ritual that celebrates the importance of trees in several spiritual traditions. Your prayers will join their blessings to nurture the trees that someday will provide shade for students studying spiritual direction.
